Hominick makes quick work of Roop, title fight next

by Michael David Smith | source: mmafighting.com

Mark Hominick earned a shot at the UFC featherweight title with a win over George Roop at Saturday's UFC Fight for the Troops 2, putting on a very impressive striking display and establishing himself as the No. 1 contender to the 145-pound king, Jose Aldo.

Hominick leveled Roop with a big right hand to the chin within the first minute of the first round, and although Roop quickly got back up, he appeared off balance and not all there. Hominick kept battering away at Roop's head and knocking him down repeatedly, and it wasn't long before the referee stepped in to stop the fight, giving Hominick a TKO victory at 1:28 of the first round.

good to see at least the fighters look out for eachother..Hominick was the only one that kept Roop from stumbling all the way across the ring...

I'm a huge Hominick fan but he has his work cut out for him with Aldo

While I think Hominick looked great, he is not in Aldo's league.Aldo will destroy him on the feet.

 Hominick was very impressive last night! His combo's were machine like... I think he will give Aldo (Who is No Joke) a run for his Belt!!!

I love watching Hominick fight. Can`t wait to see him in Toronto vs Aldo. Not sure if Mark reads the UG, but if so, congrats on the win and good luck in April!!
