UFC 129 Results: Jose Aldo vs. Mark Hominick for UFC Featherweight Title, Rd. 1
Wow, bold move by Mark Hominick saying Jose Aldo is a good striker, but "I'm a great striker." Let's hope the Machine lives to regret those words because the evidence belies the idea that Junior is just a "good" striker. I'm thinking Jose might want to teach Hominick the error of his ways.
Up close and personally.
You know it's a bad sign when Joe Rogan speaks in his usual superlatives, but when it comes time to fish or cut back, Joe still won't sign on to the idea that Mark has an edge on the feet. If you've never seen Aldo fight, you will learn to fear that little man right there (though be patient, he starts slowly a la Anderson Silva).
He's a 145 pounds of pure beast mode—watch the leg kicks and those terrifying knees. His hands are also excellent...and he's supposed to be slick on the ground, too.
So good luck with that, Mark Hominick
Aldo eschews his customarily slow, probing start and starts cracking away right off the bat. A blistering combination of left and right hooks land from the Brazilian before a vicious leg kick knocks the Machine off balance.
Hominick answers, though, with a stiff left of his own. The Machine seems to stun Junior and perhaps convinces Aldo that a change of venue is in order as he shoots for a successful takedown. Hominick threatens with an armbar attempt, but Jose is doing the majority of the damage with elbows and fists.
The Canadian is cut under his right eye and weathers another big right hand from the champ.
Big John McCarthy finally stands the duo up and Hominick lands another blow before Aldo grabs another takedown before the horn. Promising round for the Machine, but still 10-9 for Aldo.
