UFC 129 Results Recap: Jose Aldo vs. Mark Hominick

photo via MMA Weekly.

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defended his title via a five round unanimous decision over Mark Hominick.

What was the high spot of this fight?

In round four, Aldo dropped Hominick with a right hand and immediately Hominick developed a huge hematoma over his right eye. It was a pretty shocking moment.

Where do these guys go from here?

Aldo will keep on defending his featherweight title. Most likely it will be against Chad Mendes. That is a tough fight but stylistically, Hominick was probably a tougher fight for him.

Mark Hominick put up a great fight, even having a huge fifth round that could have been scored 10-8. This was, by far, the toughest test we've seen Aldo up against and that speaks very highly for Hominick. I have no clue what the next fight is for him, but I'd hope they don't set him back too far as I'm very interested in an eventual rematch.

Watch it now, later, or never?

This was a very competitive title fight, I'd say watch it now. But you can watch it later if you really want. But you can't watch it never. That's not allowed.
