Tomorrow, Saturday April 29, 2011, Jose Aldo "Junior" will make his UFC debut in front of 55,000 rabid fans at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The current UFC featherweight champion, with an overall MMA record of 18-1, will put his championship title on the line against the lethal Muay-Thai kick-boxing sensation from Canada, Mark "The Machine" Hominick.

Recently speaking about his fight camp, Aldo discussed his final weeks of preparation before Saturday night's co-main event.

"Our team works with the same training method," Aldo stated. "We will keep sparring and stimulating, but much lighter to avoid any injuries prior to the fights."

The No. 3 pound-for-pound fighter on the planet by Sherdog.com is known for his explosiveness and relentless leg kicks that have crippled some of the greatest featherweights in the world.

Driven and focused to retain his title, Aldo welcomes training partners to his camp who know how to avoid injury so that Jose is 100 percent prepared for his fight.

With teammates emulating Mark Hominick's style for the past six weeks, "Junior" has developed a fight plan specific for the tactically precise Canadian striker.

"Only in the last six weeks, we focus on the opponent and build our game-plan," Aldo commented.
