Jose Aldo and Mark Hominick went to distance at the co-main event of UFC 129, in what was without a doubt one of the greatest displays of heart and warrior spirit in UFC history.
Aldo dominated from the early minutes of the fight with powerful leg kicks and a perfectly timed striking. The Brazilian also surprised the crowd at Rogers Center in Toronto with perfectly executed takedowns. From other side, Mark Hominick lived up to expectations with sharp striking that gave Jose Aldo the first real challenge in his MMA career.
Jose Aldo showed signs of exhaustion in later rounds of the fight, as Hominick managed to defend some of the Champ's takedown attempts. Still, Aldo dominated on his feet, coming step after step closer to another title defense.
At the end of round 4, Mark Hominick received a grotesque gematomma on the right side of his forehead, but the doctors and the referee John McCarthy still allowed the fight to continue. Hominick displayed a huge warrior spirit, and managed to take Jose Aldo down in the final fifth round. The Canadian challenger threw everything he had on Aldo wtih a vicious ground and pound, but "Junior" managed to survive to another title defense.
Jose Aldo is now 19-1 in his MMA career, and is without any doubt one of the best Pound for Pound fighters on the planet.
