Both of these fighters are in desperate need of a win—and fast.
Since knocking out George Roop in his UFC debut, Hominick has lost his last three fights. Granted, one of those fights was against featherweight boss Jose Aldo, which would be tough for anyone.
Hominick has also had to prepare for his fights after the sudden and tragic death of coach and friend Shawn Tompkins.
That would do a number on anyone.
Hominick needs to recapture the form he found early on in the UFC and get a decisive win.
Garza has also been on a slide. After starting his UFC career to the tune of 2-0, he has been submitted by Dustin Poirier and was then rag-dolled by Dennis Bermudez.
He needs to go back to his roots and use his excellent submission game to end the fight with a choke or joint lock.
The loser of this fight could possibly be out of the UFC. Both have their backs to the wall, and both of them know it.
