Mark Hominick on the fight of his life

Mark Hominick is the biggest underdog on Saturday’s UFC 129 card. Even Jake Shields has a better chance against welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre than Hominick has against the 145-pound monster that is Jose Aldo. Still, it would be amazing to see him pull a Matt Serra and upset Aldo for the featherweight crown.

Hominick’s a good guy and – something I don’t get into in this UFC preview piece for Toro Magazine – his wife is expecting their first child, a girl, a few days after the big fight. How insane it must be to try and focus on the biggest fight of your career when you’re constantly on high alert, checking texts and voicemails and waiting, waiting, waiting, fucking waiting for the call that sends you to the hospital. Just crazy.
