Since getting his start in professional mixed martial arts in front of approximately 300 people, Olivier Aubin-Mercier has never let up in his drive to keep climbing the ladder, which is why he joined Ultimate Fighting Championship less than three years later. Now 28 years old, the Quebec fighter continues his ascension up the UFC ranks, in addition to occasionally helping his mentor, Georges St-Pierre, in his pre-fight training. On the occasion of his appearance as a guest commentator at the 1909 Taverne Moderne restaurant for UFC 217, we sat down with Aubin-Mercier to get his thoughts on Saturday's event, as well as on his friendship with a young Canadiens hopeful.
