Mark Hominick Retires Following A Fourth Consecutive Loss

Mark Hominick has decided to retire from MMA. Hominick finishes his career with a record of 20-12, including a decision loss to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

“Over the last 11 years, I’ve followed my passion in the UFC. Now, I’ll say UFC 154 was my last fight in the Octagon as I’m retiring and moving on to the next phase of my career,” said Hominick, during Tuesday’s UFC Tonight program. “I have a young daughter at home and another on the way. I’ll always be involved in the sport.”

Hominick has lost his last four fights after stringing together a five-fight win streak. In 2011, he went the distance with Aldo in his home country of Canada, leaving a lasting impression on fight fans with his large hematoma protruding from his forehead.

“I got to fight in front of 55,000 people in my home country and it really put me on the map in the MMA world,” Hominick said. “I got to show people who I was as a fighter and a man.”
