UFC 140 Results: What We Learned from Mark Hominick vs. Chan Sung Jung

All it took was seven seconds for Chan Sung-Jung to put away hometown favorite Mark Hominick during the opening bout of the pay-per-view main card, and it came in spectacular fashion.

Jung caught Hominick coming forward immediately, and he followed up with some ground-and-pound before the referee stopped the bout.

 

What we will remember from the fight

The victory came in very memorable fashion, and it ties the leading time for quickest stoppages in UFC history at seven seconds. It will go down in history as that until someone breaks it, and it won't be easy.

Also, Jung was able to do something that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo couldn't, and that's stop Hominick.

 

What we learned about Jung

Going into the fight, many thought Hominick had a stand-up advantage, or at least, an advantage that he could use to pick Jung apart on the feet. Jung was able to think fast and throw a perfect counter-right to knock down Hominick. He followed up with pin-point strikes and put an ending to the fight.

What we learned about Hominick

Hominick came into the fight thinking he had the advantage on the feet, and he payed for it. He came in way too confident and had no regard for the stand-up of Jung. It cost him a UFC victory, and now, he's 0-2 in his last two fights, making his UFC career one that needs to be saved in his next fight.

 

What's next for Jung

After two impressive performances, Jung could be a good test for up-and-comer and Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Brandao, who's coming off his fight-of-the-night performance against Dennis Bermudez.

 

What's next for Hominick

Hominick will have to take a look at his recent performances and learn from them, but he's still a really good featherweight. A fight versus former Ultimate Fighter winner Jonathan Brookins could be good.
