Two more fights are official for the main card of UFC 129 in Toronto.

UFC officials announced on Tuesday that Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight title against Mark Hominick, and Randy Couture will face Lyoto Machida in what could be the final bout of his career.

UFC 129 takes place on April 30 at the Rogers Centre. It is headlined by a welterweight title bout between Georges St. Pierre and Jake Shields.

Aldo is considered to be one of the best fighters in the world. He was crowned the UFC featherweight champion after running through WEC competition with ease. Hominick earned his title shot with a first-round destruction of George Roop at Fight for the Troops 2 last month.

Couture has not fought since a winning effort over boxer James Toney last fall. He’ll face Machida, the former light heavyweight champion who is currently on a two-fight losing streak and finds himself in desperate need of a win in order to stay relevant.
