Mark Hominick Knows Pressure Is On Saturday At UFC 154

Mark Hominick understands just how quickly you can go from the penthouse to the outhouse in the UFC.

This Saturday night, Hominick will face Pablo Garza at UFC 154 in Montreal. Following three consecutive losses, Hominick fully understands the pressure in front of him.

“Three straight losses is almost unheard of in the UFC,” said Hominick, during a recent interview with Fighters.com. “This is a must-win situation. I like the added pressure. I perform better under it.”

Hominick entered a 2011 showdown with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo riding a five-fight win streak. He went the distance with Aldo, but has since been knocked out by Chan Sung Jung in seven seconds and on the wrong end of a split decision loss to Eddie Yagin earlier this year.

“I plan to show that I belong among the very best in the division,” Hominick said.
