Much to the shock and dismay of the many fans inside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto last night (Dec. 10, 2011) at UFC 140, Mark Hominick was knocked out in seven seconds by Chan Sung Jung.

Wait, what?

Yes, one of the top strikers in the featherweight division was flattened in less than 10 seconds. But how could this have happened? "The Machine," who was anything but that last night, explains:

"I fought out of character. I don't think anyone's ever seen me coming out with a big wild left look lead in a fight. I fought not as composed as I normally am. I just came out too aggressive and paid the consequences. It was a good stoppage."

Hominick also dismissed the notion that he was greatly affected by the lack of Shawn Tompkins presence. Tompkins, of course, is the Canadian's longtime trainer, mentor, and friend, who passed away in August.

He can say that but it was clear he was a tad too overeager, as evidenced by his reckless style that cost him in a big way. Now he's 0-2 in his last couple fights and facing an arduous uphill battle to regain his place in the 145-pound weight class.

After the jump, Hominick expands on his defeat last night and talks about what's in his future fighting inside the Octagon.
