The belief you can’t keep a good man down long was affirmed today when it was revealed one of MMA’s outstanding individuals, Mark Hominick, would take to the Octagon on March 24 at UFC 145 after being knocked out last month in less than ten seconds by Chan Sung Jung. Hominick will face Eddie Yagin at the event.
News of Hominick’s addition to the Montreal card’s lineup was announced by UFC officials.
Hominick was caught on the button after being uncharacteristically aggressive against Jung in the opening moments of their bout at UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida, then put away instantly for the upset loss. Prior to the performance the popular Canadian fell by way of decision to featherweight champion Jose Aldo, snapping a five-fight winning streak in the process. “The Machine” holds an overall record of 20-10 with sixteen stoppages and victories over respected adversaries like George Roop, Yves Edwards, and Jorge Gurgel.
Though Yagin has only fought in the UFC a single time he is no slouch as indicated by his recent win over former Bellator title-holder Joe Soto. The 15-5-1 32-year old made his Octagon debut in September, losing a hard-fought decision to Junior Assuncao.
