Many people here the name Jose Aldo and wonder, who? He’s the UFC featherweight champion. But still the question is asked, who?

He’s won 11-straight fights, has only one blemish in his 19-fight career, and exploded onto the scene by sending heads rolling across the mat. Still, many ask the question.

Aldo steps into the UFC Octagon for the first time – his title is imported from the promotion’s merger with the WEC – before 55,000-plus fans at the Rogers Centre in Toronto on Saturday night. The same Toronto that challenger Mark Hominick calls his home turf.

Each man is known for his striking prowess, but come Saturday night, Jose Aldo warns that fans will question who he is no longer. He intends to leave a lasting impression.
