Well he definitely hasn't been the same.

If he does infact stay retired then he will be missed. Sure he wasn't winning fights left and right but he was never in a boring fight. Not even close.

I sometimes start to question if there is something wrong with me. Like perhaps I have some sort of prejudice towards light weight classes, or maybe I just don't follow other organizations enough. I am not some fair weather fan who just shows up when the fights are big or my fav fighter is winning. I have been following this sport since the glory days of Pride. I have witnessed the mob and growth that was TUF 1, and all it spawned. I watched a generation of fighters, like Chuck, Tito, and Hughes, fall to their knees. Now I am watching it happen again with Shogun, Rampage, and BJ looking like dinosaurs.

But guys, in all honesty, I couldn't even remember who this guy was when I read the thread title. I really don't care about this guy nor did I ever. I hope he never fights again for his own sake. Clearly he doesn't have what it takes.

Am I the only MMA fan who has been following the sport for a long time that doesn't give a shit about average fighters? I feel like a ghost here sometimes...

It depends on what you consider average. Yes he went downhill but it is just a little over a year ago that he was fighting Aldo for the title and fairing better than anyone has even now.

Unless you just don't like the smaller weight classes. (Which a lot of people here don't)

I have a hard time believing any of this this -- how do you say you are such a huge fan and not even know who Hominick is? He was in an absolute war for the belt against Aldo at the biggest UFC event ever, and it was the co-main event followed by GSP/Shields. He was one of the top 145ers in the WEC during his time there.

When Thomkins died, I think some of the passion that Hominick and Stout had for the sport died. I don't think either fighter will ever be the same.

Too bad to see him go but its probably the right decision.

I'll always remember the crowd at 129 rallying in the 5th round for him to finish Aldo when he was going for broke. Showed the heart of a champion despite being outclassed. Good luck to him in his future ventures.
