Eddie Yagin UFC 145Eddie Yagin made his presence felt at UFC 145 after scoring his first win in the Octagon with a split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) victory over former no. 1 contender Mark Hominick.

Yagin clearly took the first round.  The former Tachi Palace Fights champion landed several hard leg kicks and stiff lefts.  Midway in the round, Yagin dropped Hominick with an uppercut left hook combination and then tried to pounce but Hominick was able to regain his faculties but there is a visible mouse under Hominick’s right eye.

Round two went better for the Canadian as he was able to land more straight punches and body shots, however Yagin was able to drop Hominick with a right hand.  Yagin would try to pressure Hominick again with ground n’ pound but Hominick was able to stop and get back to his feet.  Towards the end of the round Yagin appeared to slow down and Hominick landed some body shots and both men appear to be bloody.

Hominick seemed to pick things up in the third round and landed far cleaner hand combinations.  Yagin’s strikes seemed to be predictable for the Canadian and Hominick starts to unload.  Towards the end of the third round,

The victory puts the 33-year-old Yagin on the map and moves his mixed martial arts record to 16-5.
