Alexander Hernandez, One of the hottest prospects fighting in the Lightweight Division lost to Donald Cerrone. Hernandez got a taste of his own medicine by disrespecting a legend, Donald Cerrone. Hopefully Hernandez got humbled by the lost and returned to the gym!! Showing the new skills he worked on against a UFC veteran in Francisco Trinaldo.
Alexander Hernandez fights out of San Antonio and his upcoming fight is in San Antonio. Fighting in front of training partners, Family, Friends will give Hernandez some extra motivation. Hernandez lives and trains in San Antonio, Texas, as a member of the Ohana Academy.
Losing to Donald Cerrone, Humbled him. Taught Hernandez he needs a lot of work to do!! Flaws in his game.
In an Instagram post, Hernandez thanked Cerrone for the experience and said it taught him he needs to “learn to fight” and perhaps even change his approach to the game.http://n an Instagram post, Hernandez thanked Cerrone for the experience and said it taught him he needs to “learn to fight” and perhaps even change his approach to the game.
“Congratulations @cowboycerrone. You taught me something invaluable in defeat,” Hernandez posted with a picture of himself post-fight, showing the damage Cerrone did to his face. “Perhaps the best/worst thing that ever happened to me was a 42 second knockout debut. I go into every fight feeling untouchable and expecting a repeat of the same occurrence. I prepare myself in the moments prior for an execution in the first round and not a fight. I need to learn to fight. I need to address my approach. I brought the fight to Cerrone and where he made adjustments, I did not. Experience is a costly bitch.https://mmajunkie.com/2019/01/alexander-hernandez-says-cowboy-cerrone-taught-him-he-needs-to-learn-to-fight-ufc-brooklyn
Hernandez, 26 years old still has a lot of promise. A loss can devastate a fighter or a loss can be the best thing for the fighter. Hernandez loss was the best thing for him. Work hard everyday at the Ohana Academy, Learning the mistakes in his fighting.
No slouch at all, Ranked #13 in the Lightweight Division. Beat Beneil Dariush and Olivier Aubin-Mercier. Potential to be a UFC Lightweight Champion because he’s extremely talented.
Win over Francisco Trinaldo would place Alexander Hernandez in the top Ten. Fighter to Watch for Edwards vs Dos Anjos event, 2019 and in the future!!
