An excited - but focused - Jose Aldo is determined to leave the Octagon on April 30th the way he entered it: as the UFC featherweight champion. UFC 129 takes place April 30 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and airs on pay-per-view:
"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."
