“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.
