Mark Hominick




TRAINING: Training has been similar to past camps, with 2 practices a day, 6 days a week. My morning training sessions are geared towards strength and conditioning, pad work and drilling, whereas the afternoon/evening practices are focused on sparring and live situations.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was always involved in Martial Arts all my life and I made my professional MMA debut in the TKO organization in June of 2002. Before that I was very active on the professional and amateur Kickboxing/Muay Thai circuit and in the amateur grappling circuit.

What ranks and titles have you held? I’m currently the TKO World Super-Lightweight champion and a 7 time defending champion. I’m the ISKA Canadian Super Welterweight Kickboxing champion and the IKF North American Super Welterweight champion.

Do you have any heroes? Shawn Tompkins, Jens Pulver, and Wanderlei Silva are my heroes in MMA.

What is your favorite technique? I love all the techniques I use in a fight.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC really adds credibility to the 145lb weight division and it excites me to be a part of the biggest and most respected MMA promotion in the world. I am hungry to prove what the weight division adds to the UFC and counting the days until I get to step in the cage.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I completed my University degree in Business and Administration.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a full time student.

•    Calls himself a “super-proud Canadian” who, like most Canadian boys, grew up playing hockey

•    Earned Bachelors of Commerce degree (essentially Business Administration) from the University of Windsor in Canada

•    Wife gave birth to their first child in May 2011; Hominick had been known to finish a sparring session and then join his wife for Lamaze class.

•    Far and away one of the fastest, most dangerous and polished strikers the Octagon has ever seen. His 2010 long-awaited fight against fellow countrymen Yves Jabouin – a battle between Canada’s two top featherweights  – was as technically brilliant and beautiful a standup war as you will ever see in MMA. Both men produced a non-stop, technically brilliant masterpiece that ended with an overwhelmed and discombobulated Jabouin on the canvas, the victim of one too many vicious body shots and pinpoint fists to the face.
