After speaking with Xtreme Cagefighting Federation promoter Doug Bland, MMAJunkie is reporting that the promotion is planning to donate some of the proceeds from their upcoming “DynaPep Rumble in Racetown”, to be held on Feb. 14, to the “Corey Hill Get Well Fund.”
“Our promotion was new to Florida and Rob Kahn from Gracie Tampa went out of his way to help us,” Bland said. “After Corey was hurt Rob told us about how long he was going to be out and what he was up against, so we thought it would be a good idea to try and put some type of fund raising campaign to help Corey while he was recovering.”
“XCF: DynaPep Rumble in Racetown” is available as on online pay-per-view on the Xtreme Cagefighting Federation’s official website for $9.95. The XCF will donate $1 out of each purchase to the “Corey Hill Get Well Fund.”
In addition to the pay-per-view revenue, the XCF is also generating additional money for the fund at an autograph session.
“We are hosting an autograph session the day of the fight at the arena where fighters will sign a commemorative poster for $10 with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Corey,” Bland said. “For the online pay-per view portion of the event, we will be donating a dollar for each purchase of the fight.”
The article goes on to say that Hill, who suffered a nasty leg break at UFC Fight Night 16: Fight for the Troops, is grateful for the financial assistance he’ll be receiving for him and his family, and “can’t believe the folks at XCF are putting something like this together,” for him.
The fight card for “XCF: DynaPep Rumble in Racetown” is slated to include former UFC fighters Frank Trigg, Terry Martin, Jesse Taylor and Jeremy May along with former All-Pro Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive End, Marcus Jones and Daytona native Todd Cutler.
