Olivier Aubin-Mercier gets win over Alex Martinez to advance PFL Playoffs

Olivier Aubin-Mercier met Alex Martinez at PFL 7 to determine who advanced from lightweights in the PFL Playoffs.

Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Alex Martinez met in the semi-finals of the PFL Playoffs to see who would go on to Madison Square Garden as one-half of the lightweight finals in the championship tournament. The two self-described friends spoke glowingly about one another prior to their encounter but Aubin-Mercier and Martinez both made it clear that this was a fight and they were here to win.

The first round saw both men exchanging some shots, but it wasn’t a very exciting round. The second round started off with Aubin-Mercier knocking down Martinez and diving into his guard. He spent the rest of the round trying to lock Martinez into a rear naked choke. Despite spending well over three minutes fighting off Aubin-Mercier, Martinez was able to survive for a third and final round.

Aubin-Mercier started the third round much like the second, tagging Martinez, and dropping him. The rest of the round saw Aubin-Mercier handle Martinez similarly to how it went in the second round, with a lot of activity.

Aubin-Mercier was able to sweep the judges and go 5-0 in the PFL as he advances to the lightweight finals of the 2022 PFL Playoffs.
