Comes up short in Copenhagen
September 29, 2019
Hernandez lost to Jack Shore via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:51 of Round 3 at UFC Copenhagen on Saturday.
Hernandez looked the part of a (+195) betting underdog, even though he was going up against a debuting opponent. While he was able to defend the takedown early and even got off a couple noteworthy strikes, his moments of success were few and far between. When it was all said and done, Hernandez tallied just six significant strikes and zero takedowns, resulting in a disappointing day for fantasy owners. He falls to 0-2 under the UFC banner, and it's unclear if he'll get another chance after getting submitted in both outings.
Facing Jack Shore in Copenhagen
August 27, 2019
Hernandez (10-3-0) is scheduled to face Jack Shore (11-0-0) in a bantamweight fight Sept. 28 at UFC Copenhagen.
Hernandez lost in his UFC debut back in July, tapping out in the second round in his showdown with Marlon Vera. He'll have the edge in experience when he returns to the Octagon in Copenhagen, where he'll take on a UFC newcomer in Shore, who has most recently fought in the Cage Warriors promotion.
Taps to Marlon Vera in UFC debut
July 6, 2019
Hernandez lost to Marlon Vera via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:25 of Round 2 at UFC 239 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In on extremely short notice for a soon-to-be-suspended Sean O'Malley (failed drug test), Hernandez hung around for a while before the experienced veteran finally closed the deal. Hernandez is a striker by trade, and he looked uncomfortable in a fight that was primarily contested on the mat. Fighters who are willing to make their Octagon debut at the drop of a hat almost always get a second opportunity with the company regardless of what happened the first time around, so expect to see the 25-year-old Hernandez back in the UFC in the not-too-distant future.
Taking on Marlon Vera in UFC debut
July 2, 2019
Hernandez (10-2-0) is slated to take on Marlon Vera (15-5-1) in a bantamweight fight Saturday at UFC 239 in Las Vegas, Nolan King of reports.
The UFC has been searching for an opponent for Vera for the past two weeks after Sean O'Malley was removed from the 239 card after failing a drug test. The promotion appears to have found its man in Hernandez, a rising 25-year-old prospect in the 135-pound weight class who will be making his UFC debut. Hernandez will enter the Octagon riding a four-fight winning streak, with his most recent victory coming over Kyle Reyes at Tachi Palace Fights 35 in November.
