It's been a horrendous last few months for UFC fighters Sam Stout and Mark Hominick. They lost their trainer and mentor Shawn Tompkins back on Aug. 14. Stout is married to Tompkins' sister and the trainer was also the best man at Hominick's best man. So the bond between the guys was incredibly deep. The Las Vegas and fight community can celebrate the life and legacy of Shawn Tompkins this Friday at the TapouT Training Center (4040 W. Hacienda) from 6-8 p.m. PT. Stout, Hominick, Bas Rutten and Mike Straka along with many other stars of MMA will be attendance to this event open to all fans. We spoke with both fighters about their friend's impact in and out of the cage.
