Hominick vs. Roop Wiki Update Wiki

Mark Hominick polished off George Roop in under 90 seconds at UFC's Fight for the Troops fundraising event on January 22, 2011 with the latest in a series of impressive performances for the streaking featherweight. Hominick's dominant striking display was the first of three fights in a row to end by first round knockout on the night. But Hominick's was the fastest, and also carried extra weight, as he earned a title shot with the win against vaunted Brazilian 145 lb. champion Jose Aldo.


Roop, the taller of the two fighters, started out game in the opening seconds with good kicking at range as well as punching combinations. But Hominick quickly found his rhythm and began tagging Roop with precision shots to the head. By the one minute mark Hominick was stalking Roop down, who clearly had no answer for Hominick's standup skill. The end came at 1:28 with a left hook to the jaw that dropped the stunned Roop. Referee Don Turnage quickly stepped in to call an end to the bout as Roop slumped against the fencing.


“You have to make statements with your performances, and I think I did that tonight,” said Hominick, who improved to 20-8 with the win. Roop momentarily challenged the stoppage, but quickly accepted it as he stumbled around the Octagon upon standing back up.
