London, Ontario striker Mark Hominick (13-6) has made no secret of his desire to some day face World Extreme Cagefighting Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber (18-1-0). The 24-year-old former TKO featherweight champion might soon find himself one step closer to this goal.

The Fight Network has learned that officials at Zuffa are considering transferring the remainder of Hominick’s Ultimate Fighting Championship contract to their organization’s second league.

Although “the Machine” has racked up a pair of impressive UFC wins at 155 pounds over veteran Yves Edwards and Jorge Gurgel, Hominick has indicated that he is more comfortable fighting ten pounds lighter at his natural weight.

Hominick is coming off a dubious unanimous decision loss at Feb. 9’s TKO 28 to featherweight champion Hatsu Hioki (12-1-1), the man who took his title.
