Alexander Hernandez is for real:

Alexander “The Great” Hernandez is as good of a 25-year-old prospect as there is in MMA right now.

Hernandez is a perfect 2-0 inside the octagon after a hard-fought victory over an extremely tough, durable Olivier Aubin-Mercier at UFC on FOX 30.

The San Antonio, Texas native, was able to dominate the bigger Aubin-Mercier for the majority of their 15-minute contest, winning his eighth straight in the process.

Where does Hernandez go from here? With wins over Beneil Dariush and now OAM, one could only think a top 15-ranked opponent is next for this young lightweight fighter.
