Mixed martial arts record from Sherdog

Abner Lloveras Hernández (born September 4, 1982 in Barcelona) is a Spanish professional mixed martial artist in the lightweight division.[1] Abner received a Gold Medal in the Spanish Olympic boxing tournament in 2010. He also competed on The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Lloveras made his professional MMA debut in August 2004 with the UK Mixed Martial Arts Championship promotion in England. Over the next decade, he would compete for a variety of promotions – including Shooto and M-1 Global – as he amassed a record of 19 wins against 7 losses. One of Lloveras most notable bouts during this period was with UFC fighter Phillipe Nover.

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

On August 31, 2015, it was announced that Lloveras would be a contestant on the 22nd season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show.[4] In the elimination round, he defeated Vlado Sikic by verbal submission due to a shoulder injury. In the preliminary round, he defeated Jason Gonzalez by unanimous decision. In the quarterfinals, Lloveras lost to Julian Erosa on a controversial split decision.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Lloveras faced fellow cast member Chris Gruetzmacher at the TUF 22 Finale on December 11, 2015. On a fairly competitive three rounds, with Abner almost finishing the fight with a standing rear-naked choke, he lost the bout by unanimous decision and was subsequently released from the promotion.[5]

Post-UFC[edit]

Lloveras faced UFC veteran Andre Winner on June 25, 2016, for the SHC interim welterweight title, in Geneva.[6] He lost the fight via split decision.
