Hominick makes quick work of Roop, title fight next
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.
