UFC 129: Which Matchup Is Most Similar to Prince William's Royal Wedding?

Earlier this morning, Prince William and Catherine Middleton were joined together in holy matrimony, all the while reeling in over 2.9 million simultaneous viewers on one stream. 

With that being said, who will be this Saturday's biggest draw? Everyone expects Georges St-Pierre and Jake Shields to be the most watched bout, but is that not debatable?

Arguably the most watched fight during the event may in fact be the last time fans get to see Randy Couture in the octagon, unless it's in a movie down the road for "The Natural." He squares off against the former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida, who has lost his last two fights in a row, and needs a win bad to stay relevant in a tough division.

Perhaps, it's the young exciting Brazilian sensation Jose Aldo, who is taking on Canada's own Mark Hominick in a five round slugfest to see who the best 145-pound fighter is on the planet. Don't expect Aldo and Hominick to kiss like Willy and Kate though, as they'll both bring their brawl first mentality into the fight, looking to KO one another right away. This could be the fight of the night for sure.

Or maybe it's the arguably pound-for-pound best fighter in the world you're looking to see take on the former Strikeforce middleweight champion. If you haven't seen any of the UFC Primetime episodes, I highly recommend checking them out.  

Whatever your cup of tea is, Saturday night you can expect to see more excitement and entertainment than the Royal Wedding today.
