The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Quebec Kid, Olivier Aubin-Mercier, will be in action at UFC on FOX 30. The talented lightweight fighter from Canada will be taking on American fighter Alexander Hernandez in a fight on the main card. Both fighters will know that a win will be massive in pushing forward their careers so I am expecting top performances from both the Canadian and the American fighter.
Olivier Aubin-Mercier enters this fight with a record of 11 wins and 2 losses. That is a decent enough record but he needs to continue winning if he wishes to move towards the top of the lightweight division. The Quebec Kid last fought at UFC 223 in April where he managed to knock out his opponent in the first round. The victory game Olivier Aubin-Mercier the award for performance of the night, a title which will give him tons of confidence as he heads into this clash. Olivier Aubin-Mercier is one of the best up and coming fighters in the UFC and it will be interesting to see if he can get another win.

On the other side of the octagon, Alexander Hernandez enters having won his last fight at UFC 222. The American has a record of 9 wins and 1 loss which is also good but he is still early in his career and knows he needs more wins to be taken seriously in the division. A win over Olivier Aubin-Mercier will be massive for the career of Alexander Hernandez and that should give him enough motivation to put up a great display.
All in all, I think we should have a great fight between two exciting fighters. Both fighters have great records and will be desperate to keep their winning streaks together. It is not easy picking a winner but I am going to go with Olivier Aubin-Mercier. The Quebec Kid is one of the best young fighters and I think he has enough to get a win. We are getting a good enough price to wager on Olivier Aubin-Mercier winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest for this game.
