Should Mark Hominick’s Hematoma Have Prompted a Stoppage?

Following Mark Hominick's duel against Jose Aldo last Saturday, many fans were asking: Is his Hematoma that dangerous? Let Dr. Johnny Benjamin tell you the answer.

Mark Hominick’s swelling forehead was one of the most grotesque images that people saw at UFC 129 last Saturday. But was it dangerous? MMAJunkie’s Dr. Johnny Benjamin discusses the nature of Hematoma, whether it was right to continue last Saturday’s match, and how such injuries are treated.

According to Dr. Benjamin, visually compelling injuries like Hematoma must be properly inspected by well-trained cage-side medical staff, experienced corner men and vigilant referees. When properly handled, such injuries poses minimal risk to the affected athlete. Hence, an enlarging forehead Hematoma that doesn’t significantly affect an athlete’s vision is not dangerous. As a result, the fight can continue.

"I've gone through the bottom, and now I've got a chance to go against the top – the best of the best. Those are the guys I've always wanted to face." ---Mark Hominick

Mark Hominick (20-8 MMA, 3-0 UFC) proved himself in the cage last Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night 23 event.

UFC big boss, Dana White , made clear that Hominick’s victory over George Roop earns him an April title shot at UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

“This is huge, but the thing with me, I’ve been fighting professionally for 10 years,” Hominick said following the win. “I’ve gone through the bottom, and now I’ve got a chance to go against the top – the best of the best. Those are the guys I’ve always wanted to face.”

All Hominick needed was an 88 minute shot to grab the spotlight. He dropped Roop early and Roop’s stand clearly shows his incapacity to stay for another round.

The WEC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, already got a new contender. Can Mark Hominick prove to the fans that he deserves the title? The audience are really in for a powerful 2011!

The WEC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, seems to have lined up his next challenger. Aldo pointed out Mark Hominick as his likely opponent, perhaps as soon as January. Hominick will bring in a four-fight winning streak to his next appearance against the champ. He recently earned a split decision victory over Leonard Garcia at WEC 51. In addition to that, Hominick was also able to win a fight versus Yves Jabouin, Savant Young and Bryan Caraway. Carrying 19 victories in his record, Hominick has proved to be an adept fighter both on stand and on ground. Jose Aldo, on the other hand, has a clean record by winning all of his 11 fights. He has notable wins over Manny Gamburyan, Urijah Faber, Mike Thomas Brown, Cub Swanson, Jonathan Brookins and Alexandre Franca Nogueira.

With an Aldo vs Hominick title bout penciled for January, WEC will definitely have a good fight to start the year.
