    Default Seven-time ufc veteran mark hominick retires

    MMAjunkie.com

    Ten-year MMA veteran Mark Hominick (20-12 MMA, 3-4 UFC) has competed for the last time.

    The 30-year-old Canadian and Shawn Tompkins protege announced on Tuesday's new edition of FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" that he's hanging up the gloves in favor of chasing other options.

    "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 said.


    Hominick actually made his UFC in March 2006, when he claimed a submission win over Yves Edwards. He returned in June of that year with a decision win over Jorge Gurgel.

    Hominick then transitioned to the WEC, where he fought five times before returning to the UFC octagon.


    The decision loss was the last time he would step in to the cage with his longtome trainer and friend Tompkins, who passed away unexpectedly in August

    "As a family, I have young daughter," Hominick said. "I have another daughter on the way, and I think that's the next phase of my life. I need to put focus into that."

    Hominick didn't reveal what he would do next, but he insisted that MMA will remain a focus in his life.

    terrible news, but i completely understand where this is coming from. I wouldnt be surprised if he took a year or two off before getting that itch to come back, just needs to take time off and get his mind in the right place...that camp hasnt been the same since tompkins passed away

    Think so ? I think this retirement has been in the making for a while now he just wanted to see if he could get that one last win in.

    Default Mark Hominick retires..........

    I was quite surprised to hear this..........

    Only 30 years old, and probably gave Aldo his toughest fight yet.........looked to have a lot of promise, even though he started going downhill after that fight.

    He was just never to come back from his best friend passing away. Sad man.
