UFC lightweight Olivier Aubin-Mercier will compete in his fourth UFC fight this weekend against Tony Sims in Saskatoon. The TUF Nations finalist, like many other fighters, has to go through the usual pre-fight promotional duties – having portraits taken, maybe a little video, etc. Fans don’t often get to see how this is done – they just get the final product.
So here’s your inside access look at how Aubin-Mercier handles photo shoots. Spoiler – his idea of intensity may be a little different from yours and mine. I hope you find it as hilarious as I do.
Note To Self: Never say the word “Intensity” around Olivier Aubin-Mercier!

It’d be cool if we get to see more goofy stuff like this in the future.
Aubin-Mercier’s bout will be the second on the main card. Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon will be headlined by a featherweight fight between Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira.
