That was pathetic refereeing. The stoppage was excellent, there was no need for Roop to take any more shots, he was clearly done, but to just walk away and let Roop stumbled across the octagon like a drunk tramp was ridiculous. Awesome performance from Hominick though, his striking looked fantastic!

Should be a passable fight. Aldo has him outclassed though.

Wow. I guess being Canadian I should be more familiar with Hominick, I didn't realize he was such a good striker.

Does he have a chance against Aldo anyone think, I haven't seen either fight enough to make a decent judgment.

The improvements he seems to have made in his standup in the UFC are amazing.
Well, so much for that prediction.

Hominick is right: Aldo has never faced someone like him.

But Hominick is forgetting something more important: he has never faced a fighter like Aldo.

That's the big problem.

I think Aldo is gonna heat him up with leg kicks early on, just like he did with Faber, then look for the finish with his striking.

It's gonna be an awesome fight.

Lucky canadian fans!

Hominick looked solid out there, but Aldo is on some next level shit. But the saying goes, it's always good to aim for the stars, but even if you don't get there, at least you have a direction.
