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.”
