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.

Two 145-pound fighters will go toe-to-toe in the upcoming Fight of the Troops on January 22 in Fort Hood, Texas. The warriors that will clash inside the Octagon are Mark and .

With a mission to destroy everything in his path, Hominick submitted Savant Young. Following that is ’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 , 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 debut. Roop rebounded with a win over Dave Kaplan, but he was submitted by 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?
