Top Featherweight contender, Mark Hominick, who will challenge division Champion Jose Aldo for the title at UFC 129 in Toronto, discusses his opponent, as well as his training and preparation for the bout. In addition to working with BJJ black-belt Jorge Britto, Hominick reveals that he has also brought in national wrestling champs and Olympic level boxers in preparation for, what he says, is the biggest fight of his life.
The match-up will mark Aldo's promotional debut, as he puts his belt on the line for the third time since dethroning then-champ Mike Brown at WEC 44. The Brazilian followed up with successful title defenses against both Urijah Faber and Manny Gamburyan before being named the UFC's first ever Featherweight Champion.
UFC 129 is set to take place April 30th from the sold-out Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The stacked card will be headlined by a Welterweight title clash between division Champion Georges St. Pierre and challenger Jake Shields.
