Toronto - Canadians Mark Hominick and Sean Pierson threw out ceremonial first pitches prior to last week's Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays game at Rogers Centre.
Both fighters will be competing at the venue on Saturday in what will be the largest MMA event in North American history; Hominick takes on Jose Aldo for the featherweight title, while Pierson faces Jake Ellenberger on the undercard.
The fighters, who both hail from the province of Ontario, spoke to The Fight Network on the field about what it will be like to be a part of the UFC's first stadium show. Watch the video here!
