Mark Hominick showed tremendous heart in his UFC 129 bout with Jose Aldo. Although he came up short in his bid to win the featherweight title in it's first ever defense in the world's largest promotion, Hominick has nothing to be ashamed of. Despite developing a huge hematoma at the hands of Aldo, Hominick dominated the final round of the bout, arguably earning a 10-8. That final round has Hominick sure that he would have taken the fight if only it were one round longer, as he tells the London Free Press:

"I came in a 4-1 underdog," Hominick said. "A lot of people didn’t think I would last a round. I lasted all five. If there was a sixth round, I would have won."

If he had another minute, he might have won.

"I knew he was running out of steam. I could hear him breathing hard after the first two rounds."

Of course, it does appear that Aldo was suffering from an illness heading in as well.

A rematch is incredibly interesting but it appears that will probably have to wait as Chad Mendes probably gets the next shot at Aldo's title.
