    This guy was too malnourished to have been fighting. A body mass index of less than 20 (Hill's is around 18) is dangerously low.

    I agree, he is too skinny, but you have to take into consideration that BMI is a very vague indicator used as a general health assessment. Technically, as far as BMI goes, I am on the low side of obesity, but there is no consideration for muscle mass. My body fat % is much lower than an obese person's. I actually think Corey's injury had more to do with bone health and density.
