Mark Hominick made it known publicly that he wished to compete at UFC 140 in Toronto.
UFC officials have confirmed Hominick (20-9) will be part of the card, as he has been signed to face Chan Sung Jung (11-3).
It was not made known if the Hominick-Jung fight will be part of the pay-per-view main card or not.
Hominick will be fighting in his native country for a second straight time, as he competed at UFC 129 against featherweight champion Jose Aldo. “Scarface” was unable to finish Hominick, but did secure a decision victory in a bout that scored Fight of the Night honors.
“The Korean Zombie” won his UFC debut by defeating Leonard Garcia earlier this year. The 24-year-old used a rare twister to earn the Submission of the Night.
