Jose Aldo recently defeated Urijah Faber and knocked out Manny Gamburyan in his latest bout before being injured. Aldo is reknowned striker in Muay Thai usually taking out his oppenents with a barrage of punches, knee strikes and sharp elbows. In his first UFC title defense, he will go up against the dangerous Mark Hominick, whos recent wins includes Yves Jabouin, Leonard Garcia and George Roop. Hominick has fought at both Featherweigh and Lightweight during his professional career. He has appeared in many organizations including the Affliction and WEC.

I think this will be an easy victory for Jose Aldo and I'm not really impressed with Hominick's credentials but nevertheless we can expect Hominick to give Aldo some more highlight footage in an already impressive knockout reel.

UFC 129 is already sold out and this will be a great exposure to both Aldo and Hominick who might be fighting in the biggest card of their career.

UFC 129 is headlined by Canadian Georges St. Pierre versus the American Jake Shields. St. Pierre is fresh from his latest title defense, winning a unanimous decision against Josh Koscheck. Shields had a tough outing against UFC veteran Martin Kampmann that showed some holes in the cardio (which maybe the result of cutting down from 185 to 170 lbs) of the former Strikeforce champ. St. Pierre is expected to keep the fight standing and using his vast arsenal of strikes to keep Shields from taking him down and enforcing his ground game advantage.

Shields is a Caesar Gracie BJJ Black belt and is known to train with the Diaz brothers and Gilbert Melendez. Before coming in the UFC, Shields fought at Middleweight and fought against Dan Henderson which he won impressively.

UFC champ St Pierre showcased his potent jab against Koscheck, nullifying the former division 1 and national champs chances in taking the fight to the ground. This probably will be the same tactic he will use against Jake Shields, who we all know, will be looking to take him down and use his jiu-jitsu to strangle him in submission.

Hall of Famer Randy Couture will face the unorthodox karate style of Lyoto Machida in a feature fight in UFC 129. Watch the interviews and preview video of the fight to be shown soon. Couture whose recent victory was against boxer James Toney. Machida is coming of a two fight losing skid.

Machida recently fought Rampage Jackson who handed him his second straight loss in the Octagon. The karate master desperately needs a win to stay relevant in the light heavyweight division. Randy Couture who's extra curricular activities includes acting. This is a very challenging fight for Couture and it will be interesting what gameplan he has for the elusive style of Machida. I expect that Lyoto will be more aggresive against Couture after a lackluster performance against Rampage Jackson. Couture however will look to clinch and use his wrestling to take the fight to the ground and control Machida. Basically, almost the same plan he used when he fought Brandon Vera.
