As some of you may know, UFC 129 is going to be the first UFC event held in the province of Ontario since they legalized it back in August of 2010. As far as I'm concerned, it's going to be a very good card as well:
Welterweight Championship bout: Georges St-Pierre (c) vs. Jake Shields
Featherweight Championship bout: José Aldo (c) vs. Mark Hominick
Light Heavyweight bout: Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Jason Brilz
Light Heavyweight bout: Randy Couture vs. Lyoto Machida
Lightweight bout: Mark Bocek vs. Ben Henderson
Two of my favourite fighters are taking part in this event too. Georges St-Pierre, the current welterweight champion, is going up against Jake Shields. A UFC newcomer, whom has quite a resume from his time in Strikeforce. He is on a 15 fight winning streak, and has some impressive victories over Martin Kampmann, Dan Henderson, Yushin Okami, and others. I think this will be a great fight.
My second favourite is Lyoto Machida. Although he has lost his last 2 fights, one against Shogun Rua, and the other against Rampage Jackson. I'm not sure how he's going to fare against a UFC veteran like Randy Couture, but as a fan, I hope that he fights his heart out and comes out on top.
Until next time boys and girls, have a great weekend! :)
