Mark Hominick Retires

"I truly got to live my passion and follow my dreams by competing in mixed martial arts, especially under the Zuffa banner, but UFC 154, that's the last fight I'll be in the octagon, as I'm retiring and looking to move on to the next phase of my career."

"As a family, I have young daughter," Hominick said. "I have another daughter on the way, and I think that's the next phase of my life. I need to put focus into that."

"I'm always going to be involved in the sport. This is my passion. This is what fuels me."

Thanks for all the wars Mark, best of luck in the future.

Was sad to see his downfall after losing to Aldo.

Man, this sucks! I always hoped Mark would pull it back together and get a good W streak going again.

Good boy, know when to quit. Shogun should do the same.

I am sure he will be back. It is hard to take 95% of retirements seriously, especially at his age.

I think they (Stout and Hominick) have so much loyalty that they never wanted to disrespect their mentor and trainer by going elsewhere. But even if they did other trainers won't know them well enough the way Tompkins did. In reality it's not that he lacks the skills it's really circumstance in my mind and that's a bummer.

Yagin was winnable along with KZ. He's just in a bad skid. He should take a break and make a reasessment rather than rush in. If not I'm sure he'll make a good coach. Wonder what Sam is planning.

You know how tough this sport is when fighters are retiring prematurely.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
