Wins in 80 seconds
LightweightUFC
October 2, 2021
Hernandez defeated Mike Breeden via KO (punches) at 1:20 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez hasn't exactly been the picture of consistency over the course of his UFC run, but he had no difficulty handling his late-notice opponent in Breeden, who missed weight by 2.5 pounds Friday morning. Hernandez came out aggressive from the very start and quickly finished Breeden with a flurry of shots which required referee Mark Smith to step in. Now 29 years of age, Hernandez has always been long on talent and short on performance. The Texan has now alternated wins and losses in his past seven bouts, which simply isn't good enough for a fighter with his natural abilities.

ANALYSIS
Hernandez's initial opponent withdrew from their upcoming fight Thursday and the UFC wasted no time finding a replacement. Hernandez lost his last bout via unanimous decision back in February but has a good opportunity for a rebound against Breeden, who will be making his UFC debut.

Oct. 2 bout booked

Hernandez will take on Leonardo Santos in a lightweight bout at the UFC event Oct. 2, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez has been up and down during his UFC career, posting a 4-3 record. He last was in the Octagon back in February when he lost to Thiago Moises. Santos is also coming off a loss to Grant Dawson back in March.
Inconsistent ways continue
LightweightUFC
February 27, 2021
Hernandez lost to Thiago Moises via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez looked shocked when Bruce Buffer announced the decision, which is surprising considering he clearly lost. Hernandez managed to keep it tight for about a round before Moises started to pull away. Hernandez, as always, looked cool and calm in what was essentially a kickboxing match, but the Brazilian did an excellent job of countering and exploding when an opportunity presented itself. Hernandez is blessed with well above-average physical gifts, but consistency has long been an issue here. Hernandez has now alternated losses and wins in his past five fights on the heels of victories over Beneil Dariush (knockout) and Olivier Aubin-Mercier (decision) in his first two UFC bouts.
