Hominick vs Garza added to UFC 154 !!!


Recommended Posts



A featherweight bout between Mark Hominick (20-11 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and Pablo Garza (11-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) is the latest addition to November's UFC 154 event, officials today announced.


Officials also confirmed middleweights Francis Carmont (19-7 MMA, 3-0 UFC) vs. Tom Lawlor (8-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC), a bout MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported.


UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.


It's not clear where the above fights will land on the lineup.


Hominick finds himself in a must-win situation. After winning five straight fights in the UFC, WEC and Affliction, he earned a title shot with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 129. However, the Canadian kickboxer suffered a hard-fought unanimous-decision loss, and he's since followed it with a seven-second knockout loss to Chan Sung Jung and a split-decision defeat to Eddie Yagin.


He faces another down-on-his-luck fighter in Garza. After opening his UFC career with stoppage wins over Fredson Paixao and Yves Jabouin, the North Dakota-based fighter has suffered losses to Dustin Poirier and Dennis Bermudez. Prior to the Hominick booking, he was slated to fight Josh Grispi at this weekend's UFC on FOX 4 event but ultimately bowed out with an injury.


The latest UFC 154 card includes:

Champ Georges St-Pierre vs. interim champ Carlos Condit (to unify UFC welterweight titles)*

Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann*

Brendan Schaub vs. TBA*

Tom Lawlor vs. Francis Carmont

Mark Hominick vs. Pablo Garza

All i have to say is WOW !.

In the fight game ,i expect lots of egos but this Javier guy comes across as a quality person,i approve strongly.

I thought i was going to hear some back n forth arguing or some hate and trash talking,nope Javier is just a class act.

BTW that was no Hominick fight grrrr.
