What was funny to me was the prefight comments by Hominick. He said that Aldo had never faced a fighter with his elite level of striking. That, to me, is like Shields saying that GSP has never faced anyone with his elite level of wrestling. Just comical. Then, a gassed Aldo was still avoiding 80% of Hominicks shots with head movement alone. It brought me back to Silva vs. Forrest fight. Loved it.

I only wish that Aldo was bigger so we could have a fight between him and either Jones or Silve. Would be an incredibly fun stand up war.

And on a side note, Hominick deserved his monster FOTN bonus for that mass on his forehead alone
This part to me was amazing. I don't know how people could watch that fight and not be wowed. Aldo was light years ahead of Hominick in the striking.
