A source close to the event confirmed the match up with Heavy.com earlier today.
Hominick is fresh off a split-decision victory over former 145lbs top contender Leonard Garcia at “WEC 51: Aldo vs. Gamburyan” this past September. The win was his third of 2010 with the other two coming over Yves Jabouin and Bryan Caraway at WEC 49 and WEC 46, respectively. The Canadian was originally slated to fight against featherweight champion Jose Aldo, but the time frame for his recovery did not work with the January 1 date of the title bout.
