Mark Hominick gets featherweight title shot at UFC 129, with George Roop win

Former WEC featherweight title contender, Mark Hominick will now receive his shot at Jose Aldo’s UFC title at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on April 30th, 2011, that’s only if he can get past George Roop though later this month at UFC Fight Night 23.

“Showdown” Joe Ferraro, speaking on last night’s edition of Sportsnet’s MMA Connected, said:

“If London, Ontario’s Mark Hominick can defeat George Roop and come out unscathed at UFC Fight Night 23, look for “The Machine” to earn a title shot versus featherweight champion Jose Aldo.”
