A featherweight matchup originally scheduled for Montreal between Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin has been moved to the UFC’s return trip to Atlanta.
UFC 145 was originally scheduled to go down in Montreal in March, however after UFC officials cancelled the event, UFC Atlanta (which was originally scheduled to be UFC 146) is now coined UFC 145.
UFC 145 is set to take place on April 21st and is expected to take place at Atlanta’s Phillips Arena.
Hominick last saw action in a disappointing defeat at UFC 140 where he was knocked out by Chan-Sun Jung in just seven-seconds. The performance by Jung tied the UFC’s record for fastest knockout inside the Octagon.
Prior to the Jung defeat, Hominick lost an entertaining bid at Jose Aldo’s title.
Stepping into the cage with the former featherweight contender is Eddie Yagin. The former Tachi Palace champion last saw action in his UFC debut at UFC 135 where he picked up a decision loss to Junior Assuncao.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
