UFC 129 Preview: Georges St. Pierre Vs. Jake Shields, All Main Card Predictions

The countdown begins as we have a little more than a week left until the UFC invades Toronto for the first time.

There will be close to 60,000 screaming mixed martial arts fans on hand to witness what on paper looks to be a fantastic card full of exciting match-ups.

Hometown hero and UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre will defend his title against Jake Shields in what could be an all out ground war between two superb grapplers.

Another Canadian will be in a high profile bout as Mark Hominick will battle UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo. Two Canadians in title bouts in front of all the rabid MMA fans from up north should lend to the excitement.

In what may be the last time we see Randy Couture grace us with his presence inside the Octagon, the 47-year-old wonder will take on a dangerous and quite possibly desperate Lyoto Machida in a light heavyweight match-up.

Former WEC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson will make his UFC debut against the always tough Mark Bocek. The American Top Team-trained Bocek will look to make Henderson's entry into the UFC a rough one.

Last but not least is a light heavyweight showdown between Jason Brilz and Vladimir Matyushenko.

Personally I would have thought the Nate Diaz-Rory MacDonald bout would have made more sense for the main card, but at least we will get to see it on Spike.

Five bouts, five predictions, how many will I get right? I think I may start keeping track.
