Hominick: Bout with Aldo a 'career changer'

source: sherdog.com

Mark Hominick didn’t beat Jose Aldo when they met in April at UFC 129, but he did go the distance with the UFC featherweight champion in what was a breakthrough performance.

“It was definitely a career changer for me,” Hominick told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “It was almost like a 15-year overnight success. All of a sudden, after that fight everyone kind of took notice of who I was and what I was capable of doing. Now I have to take that momentum that I got from that fight and carry it forward to another winning streak and another title shot and eventually to win that belt.”

In his first bout back since dropping the unanimous decision to Aldo, Hominick fights Chan Sung Jung on Saturday at UFC 140. “The Korean Zombie” is coming off a submission win over Leonard Garcia in March. He had lost back-to-back fights prior to that victory.

“I think he went back to the drawing board,” Hominick said, “and realized, ‘OK, I have to fight a little smarter. Yeah, I can fight aggressive but not reckless.’ He came out in the second fight with Leonard Garcia, and he ended up submitting him with a twister. … That’s the fighter I’m expecting. I’m sure he’s going to come with his aggressive style, but again, I think he’s going to be fighting with a little bit more of a game plan.”

People are saying they respect him a lot more now because he has heart and puts on a good fight. Who said he won all the rounds? No shit he lost the fight.

I'm just being honest, why can't you accept that? I like Mark, and he certainly showed a lot of heart to hang in there and not quit (I was there live), but he was outclassed for four of the five rounds. Thats why I was sort of suprised that I had a bunch of fanboys attack me like a pack of hyenas for stating the truth in regards to what took place in the cage that night.I also like how you say "DESPITE getting his face deformed, as you say."As I say? If you type "Hominick" into Google, the second and third seach suggestions are "Hominick head" and "Hominick hematoma". It actually happened bro, its not my opinion.

 You are a negative asshole. It's not about the outcome of the fight, but what Mark put into the fight. He was a massive underdog, but fought hard and didn't give up, DESPITE getting his face deformed, as you say. Kindly, go fuck yourself.

LOL @ all the homonick fan boys. Even if you want to believe that Aldo was healthy going into the fight, how does that change the fact he lost 4-1 and was put on his ass multiple times while getting his face deformed?
