Jose Aldo Expects to Defend Title Against Mark Hominick at January’s WEC 54

Jose AldoFresh off his recent title defense over Manny Gamburyan, WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo recently said he expects to return to action in January and will likely take on veteran Mark Hominick.

“Whoever it is, I respect everyone. We already have a title defense in January against Mark Hominick, a Canadian very good at kickboxing,” Aldo told Tatame.

Aldo (18-1) continued his climb up the pound-for-pound rankings with a second-round knockout of Gamburyan at WEC 51 on Sept. 30, his eighth-straight WEC win in an 11-fight win streak that also includes wins over Cub Swanson, Urijah Faber, and Mike Brown.

Hominick (19-8) briefly left the WEC after falling to Josh Grispi in 2008, but returned with back-to-back wins earlier this year before earning a split decision over Leonard Garcia at WEC 51 for his fourth-straight win.

The January event is expected to be WEC 54 and will air on Versus.
