The time is now, fans and friends. After ten straight editions of “ufc 129 Complete Collection”, we’ve now reached the final two parts of this special twelve-part “maxi-series”. I’ve done my best to cover each and every UFC 129 fight in detail, and we’re closer than ever to completing this series. For the previous entry into the series, click here. Now it’s time to focus on the co-main event of UFC 129: an epic clash between two of the best 145-pound fighters in the world. It’s Jose Aldo vs. Mark Hominick, it’s Aldo’s debut in the UFC, and it’s for the UFC Featherweight Championship. Let’s get right to it.

If there’s one lighter-weight fighter that almost-perfectly typifies the “rags to riches” story, it’s Jose Aldo. Having grown up in the slums of Brazil, Aldo would occasionally show up to training having not eaten for the entire day. Since his debut in 2004, Aldo has lost one single time, and currently holds a fantastic 18-1 record against some of the top Featherweight fighters in the world.

There have been many, many, many discussions, debates, and conversations regarding Jose Aldo’s legendary run in the WEC. Here are some hard facts: Aldo fought eight times in the organization and finished seven opponents. All seven of those wins were either by TKO or outright KO. He has one of the fastest KO’s in WEC history, at only eight seconds. He was in the main event of the first and only WEC Pay-Per-View.

With that said, here’s my personal opinion on “Junior”: Jose Aldo is phenomenal. There’s really no other way to describe the man. He didn’t just beat everyone in his path, he demolished them. Urijah Faber was the only one that Aldo couldn’t finish, but by the end of that fight Urijah Faber could barely stand. Aldo has the killer instinct and amazing technique necessary to one day be remembered as one of the greatest fighters of all time.

His opponent, Mark Hominick, had an up-and-down career both in and out of the famed blue cage. Hominick has fought in the UFC, the WEC, and even the short-lived Affliction promotion. He’s been defeated eight times: twice by (T)KO, five times by submission. But he still holds a very respectable record of 20-8, and he has almost nine years of professional Mixed Martial Arts experience.

And what matters most is how Mark Hominick reentered the UFC: on the heels of a four-fight win-streak that included two submissions and one (T)KO, Hominick made short work of George Roop and finished him in under two minutes”¦ in under a minute and a half, to be even more exact. And during that fight Hominick showed that he was a smart, tactile, and laser-precise striker. He had rarely looked as crisp or as dominant, and it was clear that Hominick deserved the next shot at Jose Aldo after Josh Grispi’s shocking and very one-sided loss to Dustin Poirer.

I’d like to make one thing clear: I like Mark Hominick. I think he’s a very smart, very experienced, very dangerous fighter. He definitely deserves to be fighting for a championship, and if Jose Aldo wasn’t Jose Aldo, I think he’d have a great shot of becoming a champion. But that’s the problem: Jose Aldo is, in fact, Jose Aldo. And Jose Aldo is a destroyer of men.

As skilled as Mark Hominick is, I truly think Jose Aldo cannot be touched at Featherweight. He could have some interesting challenges ahead of him if he ever decides to move up to Lightweight, but at 145 Aldo isn’t just the king, he’s the king of kings. Much like Anderson Silva, Aldo takes his opponents and makes them look foolish, he makes them look like inexperienced newcomers no matter how deadly they were in previous fights. And I just don’t see Mark Hominick being the one exception to that rule.

That’s eleven, count ”˜em, eleven down and only one more to go, fans and friends. It’s been quite an experience detailing all these UFC 129 fights, and I think this could become a recurring thing for major/stacked cards. I can’t promise that I’ll cover every single fight like I’ve been doing here, but I’d certainly love to do more in-depth coverage of all the big fights and major names.

But that is then and this is now. And in the here and now, we’re only one article away from the completion of “UFC 129 Complete Collection”. But before we get to the main event”¦ what about you, fans and friends? What do you think of the fight between Jose Aldo and Mark Hominick?
