Seal Beach, CA (January 9, 2009)–Canadian featherweight champion Mark “The Machine” Hominick is no longer fighting at the Affliction M-1 “Day of Reckoning” show due to a bout of pneumonia. Hominick was set to face LC Davis as part of the undercard for “Day of Reckoning” on Saturday, January 24 at Honda Center in Anaheim, CA and broadcast live on Pay-Per-View. LC Davis is a fearsome competitor known for his wrestling skills, his intensive training regimen at Pat Miletich’s world renowned Mixed Martial Arts School, and a near perfect record. The team at Affliction is working now to replace Hominick with a top featherweight competitor of the same caliber to face off against Davis; they will soon announce a replacement.
