Mark Hominick Partners with CFL Team, Hamilton Tiger-Cats

While the NFL deals with an inevitable lockout for the 2011 season, it's business as usual (hopefully that phrase hasn't been copyrighted by Zuffa -- yet) for the Canadian Football League. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, one of the league's eight teams, has partnered with UFC featherweight, Canadian Mark Hominick. The London, Ontario-based fighter will challenge Jose Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Title next Saturday at UFC 129 in Toronto.

Both fighters are undefeated in Zuffa competition, as Hominick (20-8) enters with a five-fight win streak whick includes three wins in the WEC, and his most recent win over George Roop at UFC: Fight For The Troops 2 in January. Meanwhile Aldo (18-1), the reigning champion, carries an extensive eleven-fight win streak which boasts eight WEC wins. This will officially be the UFC's first featherweight title bout under the UFC banner.

Part of the Tiger-Cats-Hominick deal involves Hominick's participation at the team's July 16 "MMA Night."

I wonder if Hominick will sport the Mark Hominick #1 jersey as his walk-out shirt at UFC 129?
