Mark Hominick finishes George Roop early in Round 1Posted on January 22, 2011, 09:58 PM by Anton Gurevich
Mark "The Machine" Hominick cleared the way to Jose Aldo with ease, after impressively knocking George Roop in the first round. Hominick's striking was laser-sharp, as the Canadian managed to connect with almost every punch he thrown at Roop. The referee stopped the contest at 1:28 seconds of Round 1, after Hominick connected with another combo, which sent Roop dazed down to the canvas.
It was Mark Hominick's 20th career victory, and his fifth consecutive inside the Octagon. The Machine is now 20-8, and is expected to face Jose Aldo as soon as this April in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
