After what figures to go down as one of the most memorable fights
of 2010, World Extreme Cagefighting officials felt Mark
Hominick and Yves Jabouin
deserved something extra.
The two featherweight gunslingers pocketed matching $10,000 “Fight
of the Night” bonuses in wake of their action-packed encounter,
which ended in a second-round technical knockout for Hominick at
WEC 49 “Varner vs. Shalorus” on Sunday at the Rexall Place in
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Hominick buckled Jabouin with a body shot in the second round, only
to find himself on his backside moments later after the
Haitian-born Canadian popped him with a clean right hook. Hominick
reversed a fatiguing Jabouin from full guard to half mount soon
after and finished the fight from there.
Meanwhile, former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie
Wineland banked a $10,000 “Knockout of the Night” bonus after
he stopped Will
Campuzano with a second-round punching barrage to the head and
body. Wineland has rattled off three consecutive victories since
his submission loss to Rani Yahya in
Finally, once-beaten featherweight title contender Josh Grispi
earned a $10,000 “Submission of the Night” bonus following his
victory over L.C. Davis.
Grispi, 21, choked the Sengoku veteran unconscious with a nasty
guillotine 2:33 into round one. He has put away eight consecutive
opponents inside one round.
