Mixed martial arts careerEdit
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 FighterEdit
On August 31, 2015, it was announced that Lloveras would be a contestant on the 22nd season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. 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 ChampionshipEdit
Lloveras faced fellow cast member Chris Gruetzemacher 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.
