Mark Hominick vs Deividas Taurosevicius Set For Affliction "Trilogy"
A featherweight bout between former UFC and WEC fighter Mark Hominick (16-8) and IFL veteran Deividas Taurosevicius (10-3) is slated for the "Affliction: Trilogy" fight card.
Multiple sources told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) Affliction executives set the matchup, which was first reported by ESPN's "Between Rounds" radio program.
"Affliction: Trilogy" takes place Aug. 1 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and the Hominick vs. Taurosevicius bout is slated for the night's HDNet-televised preliminary card.
The event's main card, including a five-round heavyweight title fight between WAMMA champion Fedor Emelianenko and challenger Josh Barnett, airs on pay-per-view.
Hominick, an Xtreme Couture fighter, makes his second appearance for Affliction. He hasn't fought since the organization's first show, "Banned," when he defeated Savant Young with a second-round submission in July 2008. It was Hominick's third win in four fights, which included a couple of wins in the TKO organization in his home country of Canada.
Taurosevicius, meanwhile, makes his Affliction debut after also taking more than a year off from competition. The Lithuanian hasn't fought since a May 2008 decision loss to Ryan Schultz in the now-defunct IFL organization. The loss snapped his six-fight win streak, which included wins over notables such as Dan Lauzon, Zac George, Savant Young and Bart Palaszewski.
