Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Homasi made his debut with the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 20, 2016 against Tim Means on the main card of UFC 202.[5] He lost the fight via TKO in the second round.

In his second fight for the promotion, Homasi faced Abdul Razak Alhassan on December 2, 2017 at UFC 218.[6] He lost the fight via TKO in the first round after a controversial early stoppage.[7]

Due to the stoppage controversy of their first bout, a rematch with Alhassan took place on January 20, 2018 at UFC 220.[8] Homasi lost the fight via knockout in the first round.[9] Homasi was subsequently released from the UFC.[10]

The bout was then rescheduled to take place at Bellator 241 on March 13, 2020, but the whole event was eventually cancelled due to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.[12]
