Hominick looked great but Aldo is going to give him a thrashing.

I think so too, Hominick did a horrible job of checking leg kicks (as in he didn't) and if Aldo was watching this fight he's going to be going for tons of leg kicks.

Does everyone think Homnick is stupid enough to not know Aldo will be kicking?

Like I have been saying for a while I wanted to see Hominick/Aldo and I'm glad Grispi lost so we get this fight. Hominick is the only guy at 145 who can stand with Aldo. I believe Aldo will win but it is going to be a hard fought victory for him. Hominick has elite technical striking it isn't "solid" he is a better striker than Aldo by a decent amount in that respect. Aldo has the explosive athletic ability and power over him. Jabouin is actually probably faster than Aldo and a very good striker and Hominick had no problems getting inside on him it isn't as simple as "well aldo will throw leg kicks".

No bias from someone in London, Ontario I'm sure...

I'd like to see Hominick win too frankly, I always root for my fellow Canucks but I'm trying to see him beating Aldo and I'm having a hard time imagining how. Even if he is technically better is he THAT much better that he can overcome Aldo's speed and well rounded abilities? I don't think so.

I'll be rooting for Ontario to take the belt home though.

I'm starting to think Hominick might have an actual chance against Aldo. Sure, he didn't check leg kicks, but come on... you guys think he will go into the Aldo fight thinking Aldo will show up to punch?

Good stoppage by the way.

He has trained with Roop a lot in the past so he obviously knows how much power his leg kicks have. It was more important for him to get inside on him anyways. Roop is 5 inches taller than Hominick (6 inches taller than Aldo) and his best strikes are kicks. By not checking those kicks he wasn't giving Roop an extra second to reestablish his distance.

The only problem for Hominick - against Aldo he won't push the pace, he won't be the aggressor, he won't chase Aldo in the cage. - like he did against Roop.
And if he doesn't do that, it will be hard for him to put those striking skills to use.
Aldo won't come ou like a mad man, he will try and repeat the same performance he put in against Faber.

Hominick clealry knows he will have to deal with those vicious leg kicks. Problem is: if he gets too cautious about that he migh lose sight of other things.

Fighting Aldo is a tough thing to do. just like GSP.
Being so well rounded, it's hard to make a strategy against him.

You just have to go in there and show heart and ...fight.
