Hominick was actually announced as 145.25 pounds, but the Ontatio Athletic Commission ultimately decided the challenger was actually on weight. An OAC official initially told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Hominick was allowed to compete in a title fight, which does no factor in the customary one-pound allowance, because he was still wearing his fight shorts at just one-quarter pound over the contracted weight, and the house music was rattling the scale.
