 Aubin-Mercier is scheduled to fight American David Michaud at UFC 186 Saturday.

“The Reebok brand is about inspiring people to become better versions of themselves and we look forward to supporting Olivier in his quest to become a champion UFC fighter,”  Stewart Clark, Director of Marketing for Reebok Canada said.

Aubin-Mercier finished in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs Australia show. With the ongoing debate of UFC fighter pay, he seemed appreciative of the selection.

“Being a Reebok ambassador will allow me to keep progressing in my sport and reach the top of my weight class,” Aubin-Mercier said. “Reebok believes in training hard and pushing you past your limits to achieve new goals and this is the only way for me to get to where I want to go. Having a global brand’s trust and support gives me extra motivation to get there.”

Fans may be interested in knowing that Aubin-Mercier’s own Reebok walkout t-shirt will be available starting Fight Night, at the Reebok Fithub, at 1204 Ste-Catherine St. West.
