The UFC has given another Canadian product an opportunity to compete in his home-country this December when the promotion returns to Toronto for UFC 140. Already featuring popular area-athletes like Rory MacDonald and Mark Bocek, the card will now boast a match-up between featherweight contender Mark Hominick and always-exciting Chan Sung Jung.
The UFC recently revealed the bout through their Twitter account.
“The Machine” is coming off a hard-fought decision loss to featherweight champ Jose Aldo at the organization’s previous stop in Toronto this past April but had won five straight prior to the defeat including success against George Roop and Leonard Garcia. Giving him even more incentive to shine in front of his fellow Canadians than the stumble to Aldo, Hominick will also be fighting for the first time since the unexpected death of his trainer Shawn Tompkins last month and will no doubt be looking to honor his friend’s memory in the Octagon.
Jung snapped a two-fight skid in March with a Twister submission of Garcia and holds an overall record of 11-3 with nine finishes.
