Jose Aldo Condifent He Will Beat Mark Hominick At UFC 129


Jose Aldo makes will attempt to defend the featherweight title for the first time as a UFC Champion when he takes on Mark Hominick in Toronto at UFC 129 and talked about the upcoming bout and defending the strap in front of 55,000 people:

“I'm very focused on my mission. I've very excited to be fighting in the UFC for the first time and being able to defend my title. This is a dream come true. I'm going to be defending my UFC title in front of 55,000 people, I can't wait.”

“I don't pay too much attention to what (Mark Hominick's) strengths and weaknesses are. I try to pay attention to all aspects of his game and focus on his movements. I don't pay attention to how technical or emotional he is. I just pay attention to what he does and prepare accordingly. I don't care ff I'm fighting in someone's backyard or not. At the end of the day, when they close the Octagon door, it's he and I in there. I don't hear the 55,000 people screaming. I've said it before; I don't know what the hell they're saying anyways, so it doesn't bother me.”

“I will definitely beat Mark Hominick. If I didn't think I could then I wouldn't be here now. It's what I'm focused on, going in there, defending my title and winning.”
