Mark Hominick: The pressure is on Jose Aldo -- UFC 129 is his debut and I’ve fought here three times

Props: Toronto Sun

Quoteworthy:

"This is the dream I’ve been thinking about since I’ve been 13 years old. This is my passion ... This is the culmination of 10 years as a pro and I’m ready to do it on April 30. I’m the underdog so the pressure is on him. This is his UFC debut (and) I’ve fought three times in the UFC. This is the inaugural (featherweight) belt, this is the first time the UFC has ever put this belt on the line. I’m in the prime of my career (and) I couldn’t ask for a better time to get this title shot."

It's been Mark Hominick's dream to fight in Ontario for the UFC, but will Jose Aldo's rage against "The Machine" quickly make it a nightmare? The hard-hitting Canadian will challenge for "Junior's" belt in the co-main event of UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto in an attempt to dethrone the Brazilian during his UFC debut. Anyone think Hommy's got the goods to pull it off? Or will he find out the hard way that knocking out George Roop isn't enough to prepare you for the world's most dangerous 145-pounder?
