Hominick vs Roop, Set for Fight for the Troops
Two top contenders in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) new featherweight division will go toe-to-toe in a bout that could potentially have a title shot hanging in the balance.
Mark Hominick intends to go on a hot streak after his submission loss to Rani Yahya back in 2007. A year after, he suffered a rear-naked choke loss in 2008 from John Grispi. With a mission to destroy everything in his path, Hominick submitted Savant Young. Following that is Mark Hominick’s first WEC victory against Bryan Caraway. He extended his winning streak to four, after giving Yves Jabouin a TKO, and acquiring a split decision victory over Leonard Garcia.
George Roop, on the other hand, has been on a roller coaster ride during his entire career. His split-decision loss to Shane Nelson in December 2008 made him came up short in his UFC debut. Roop rebounded with a win over Dave Kaplan, but he was submitted by George Sotiropoulos at UFC 101 afterwards. He decided to make his bantamweight debut in WEC, but it wasn’t successful either. George Roop made his return in the 145 division, but he went 0-1-1 after a three-round battle with the “Bad Boy”.
Will Hominick keep on exterminating every fighter that blocks his way to the title? Or will Roop get his chance to make a major statement this time?View Article Source »
