Earns win in UFC debut

February 26, 2022
Hernandez defeated Victor Altamirano via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez and Altamirano were both making their UFC debut, and both men earned their opportunity with the company following a split decision victory on Dana White's Contender Series, so perhaps we should be surprised this one came down to another split decision. Although Hernandez was the better fighter in the early going, he slowly allowed Altamirano back into this one. There can easily be a case made that Hernandez should have found himself on the short end of a 29-28 decision, but the bout was close enough that it's difficult to get too worked up about the decision one way or another. The 28-year-old Illinois native is officially in the UFC win column.
