UFC Quick Quote: Why will Mark Hominick give Jose Aldo a lot of problems? It's very technical ...

via <a href=""></a>

"He’s definitely fought the best of the best, and he’s taken them out, but I don’t think there’s anybody in the division with my kind of striking skills. I think I present a lot of problems. It’s very technical. You see a lot of guys in MMA, they’re somewhat wild in their technique. I feel I’m really technical. I put a lot of pressure. And my hand speed. I think those are three things that can present problems to anybody. I think he likes to fight fire with fire. He likes to prove that he’s better anywhere. … He’s a black belt in jiu-jitsu, a world champion in jiu-jitsu. If we’re going in there treating it like it’s a kickboxing bout, we’re in the wrong sport. I’m ready everywhere, wherever the fight goes."

Mark Hominick tells Sherdog's "Beatdown" radio show that he possesses the striking prowess to win the featherweight title, but will Jose Aldo's rage against "The Machine" expose the hard-hitting Canadian? The Team Tompkins product 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?
