Acclaimed best fighter of 2010 José Aldo sort of kept in the shadows at the press conference for UFC 129, where he will make his promotional debut since the fusion with the WEC, defending his belt against Mark Homenick. However quiet in the interview, the current number one featherweight in the world promises he’ll show who his is in the octagon come Saturday night.
“For sure. But I see no problem in that (reporters not asking much of him); what’s important is being there in the octagon. That’s where I’ll show who I am,” he asserted.
On his opponent’s style:
“Perfect, two attackers. He’s going to do his game and I’ll do mine. We’ll see who’s who when the time comes. The one whose head is less in it is going to fall,” said Aldo in closing.
