Mark Hominick Retires from MMA


UFC THUMBLondon, Ontario’s Mark Hominick announced his retirement today on ‘UFC Tonight’.

On the program, Hominick stated,

“I truly got to live my passion and follow my dreams by competing in mixed martial arts, especially under the Zuffa banner, but UFC 154, that’s the last fight I’ll be in the octagon, as I’m retiring and looking to move on to the next phase of my career.”

Hominick won his UFC debut in 2006 when he submitted Yves Edwards.  He went on to finish with a 3-4 record in the UFC and a 20-12 record overall.  Undoubtedly, the highlight of his career was his UFC Featherweight title shot against Jose Aldo in front in the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Hominick has a young daughter and his family is expecting a second child and he wants to focus on them and pursuing other career options.

Top MMA News would like to thank Mark for entertaining us all these years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
