Hominick: My back's against the wall

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

"I've always stayed motivated," he told MMA Fighting. "I've never gotten in a rut, even losing three fights in a row. I'm still motivated and I'm still hungry. That's the biggest thing. I don't feel the desperation. I treat every fight like I want to win, and this fight's no different."

That said, Hominick certainly understands that his job could be at stake, saying, "my back's against the wall, no question." It's simply not something he focuses on, and, he says, it's not something he even thought much about until he started doing media rounds for the fight and interviewers continually brought it up.

"My goal is to compete in the UFC against the best guys in the division," he said. "That’s the only place I want to compete. I want to fight the best in the world and this is where it's at."

Sometimes a fighter will never recover from getting KTFO'd in 7 seconds like Hominick did. But him and George Roop did show us all the right way to handle the teammates-fighting-each-other situation - and they did it two months before the "Rashadgate" scandal at Jackson's broke - so none of the parties involved in the latter have any excuse for the way that was botched.

Garza's gonna try and pull a sub.  what kind of jaw and body toughness does he have ? he's gonna get punched a lot, standing, and probably also on the ground, unless he pulls that sub.  Hominick by sprawl and brawl.  he cannot go to the ground willingly.  that's Garza's pickle.

I hope Hominick can get "it" back. Great fighter.

Hominick has a lot of heart, and will come out like an animal.  Garza is in for a beating.
