Mixed Martial Arts Career
Mark Hominick began competing in mixed martial arts in 2002, competing in the Canadian promotion, TKO Major League MMA. His first professional fight was for the promotions Featherweight title, against Richard Nancoo. Hominick defeated Nancoo via TKO (Punches), and went on to defend his title in his next two fights against Steve Claveau and Stephane Laliberte.
Hominick rebounded by successfully defending his TKO Featherweight title twice, defeating Ryan Diaz and David Guigui. In his fifth title defense, against Shane Rice, Hominick was defeated with a Rear Naked Choke, losing his title. He was given an immediate re-match for the title, regaining it via TKO (Leg Kicks and Punches).
After defending his title successfully three times against Stephane Vigneault, Ryan Diaz, and Naoji Fujimoto, Hominick was given the opportunity to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) against MMA veteran Yves Edwards. He submitted Edwards with a Triangle Armbar, and then returned to TKO to defend his title against Hatsu Hioki. Hioki defeated Hominick with a Technical Submission, to take his title away from him.
His next fight took place at UFC: Ultimate Fight Night 5 against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Jorge Gurgel, winning a unanimous decision. Next he won a fight in TKO as well as in Ring of Fire, before a re-match with Hatsu Hioki for the TKO Featherweight Championship. For the second time, Hioki defeated Hominick, this time by decision.
Hominick returned to compete for a Zuffa owned promotion, but this time in the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), where he fought Rani Yahya at WEC 28: Faber vs. Farrar, losing via Rear Naked Choke. He would then return to TKO, winning two fights in a row, before taking Josh Grispi on at WEC 32: Condit vs. Prater. In his second outing in the WEC, Hominick found himself losing once again by Rear Naked Choke.
Hominick then was expected to fight Deividas Taurosevicius at Affliction: Trilogy on August 1, 2009, but the event was cancelled when Josh Barnett, who was expected to fight WAMMA Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko, tested positive for anabolic steroids, and according to Tom Atencio, they just "didn't have enough time to promote a new fight to our standards.”
Return to WEC
Signing with the WEC, Hominick would be scheduled to fight Deividas Taurosevicius, whom he was supposed to fight before Affliction closed it's doors, at WEC 43: Cerrone vs. Henderson. Hominick's two previous outings in the WEC had ended with two submission losses, both by Rear Naked Choke. Unfortunately, Hominick suffered an injury and was forced off the card, being replaced by Javier Vazquez.
Hominick was next expected to face off against Yves Jabouin on January 10, 2010 at WEC 46: Varner vs. Henderson, but when Jabouin was injured he was replaced by EliteXC and Strikeforce veteran Bryan Caraway. At 3:48 of the first round, Hominick sunk in a fight ending Triangle Armbar, earning himself his second consecutive win in the WEC.
The fight with Yves Jabouin finally materialized at WEC 49: Varner vs. Shalorus. Both fighters started their careers off in Canada, and had almost faced one another on numerous occasions, so the fight actually occurring was much time in the making. Jabouin opened up the aggressor, and his combination of kicks, punches and elbows from all angles left Hominick unable to open his own attack. While Jabouin looked to have claimed the first round, he was also visibly slowing in the closing seconds. By the second round, Hominick began to capitalize on Jabouin's lack of cardio. After sweeping to top position on the mat, Hominick delivered a flurry of blows from the mount, earning the stoppage at 3:21 of the second round.
Hominick returned to action at WEC 51: Aldo vs. Gamburyan, where he faced well-known slugger Leonard Garcia. In the end, Hominick's more-technical approach, including a remarkably effective counter-left jab, won out over Garcia's raw aggression and wild striking and led the Canadian kickboxer to a Decision (Split) victory.
- "We knew Leonard has a big right hand," Hominick said. "We wanted to make him miss and make him pay for missing. That was the game plan."
