FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HOMINICK OUT OF TKO 21 WITH FINGER INJURY
THE ROAD WARRIOR AND
MR. INTERNATIONAL ADDED
TO TKO 21: COLLISION!
MONTREAL (CANADA), July 5th, 2005 – TKO Major League MMA would like to announce the following changes to their TKO 21 fight card scheduled for Friday, July 15th, 2005 in Montreal, Canada. TKO Super Lightweight Champion, Mark Hominick has been forced to withdraw from his clash with TKO’s number one contender, Ryan Diaz. Team Tompkins was regretful to inform the TKO organization of an injury that occurred in the workplace to Hominick’s finger. Tompkins was adamant in expressing their respect for Ryan Diaz and they promised that once the healing of Hominick’s finger is complete, TKO fans will be able to witness another great showdown between these two exceptional athletes. Recognizing the importance that this fight had to its fans, TKO vigorously sought suitable alternatives. TKO believes they have successfully accomplished this task with the addition of welterweight sensation, Jonathan Goulet and “Mr. International”, Shonie Carter to their TKO 21 fight card!
JONATHAN GOULET (12-5-0) will collide with a very experienced fighter, KYLE JENSEN (34-7-1). Goulet is considered by many to be the next big thing coming from north of the forty-ninth parallel. At TKO 20, he effectively served the MMA world notice with his stunning and very bloody victory over UFC veteran Tony Fryklund. He comes into this fight riding a seven fight, two year long winning streak which also includes a dominating performance over the highly touted, John Alessio and a spectacular seven second knockout of Joey Brown. Jensen is an exciting fighter who brings the attitude of “someone is going to get knocked the f—out” each time he steps into the ring. Rarely do his fights go to decisions and at the end of the day the fans always come out victorious.
SHONIE CARTER (29-13-6) will square off against Canadian standout, JASON MacDONALD (8-4-0). Carter is a very skilled veteran who has fought the best MMA competition all over the world, including five times in the UFC. This will be a true test for MacDonald who is looking to prove that he deserves to be placed amongst the elite. Not to worry if you missed the Canada Day celebrations because there will be plenty of guaranteed fireworks in this match-up!
In total, there are ten terrific fights scheduled for TKO 21! The fight card will culminate with the highly anticipated TKO Lightweight Championship between the savvy veteran DONALD OUIMET (10-3-0) and the young phenom, SAM STOUT (6-1-1)!
