Joe Pyfer Responds to Critics After UFC Vegas 86 Loss

Despite suffering his first UFC setback, middleweight Joe Pyfer remains confident, stating he will make adjustments and come back stronger after losing to Jack Hermansson in UFC Vegas 86.

Joe Pyfer’s confidence remains unshaken. Even after his first UFC defeat, he’s standing tall.

Saturday’s UFC Vegas 86 main event was a tough one for him. The rapidly ascending middleweight faced off against the seasoned Jack Hermansson. Pyfer started strong, but by the final three rounds, he was trailing. Hermansson, known as “The Joker,” ultimately took the win by unanimous decision.

Post-fight, Pyfer took to Instagram Stories. He shared his thoughts on the match and had a few choice words for his critics.

“I’m OK, regardless of how my face appears,” he assured his followers. He clarified, “I wasn’t rocked. Took a punch to the eyeball, lost my vision. He did well on the calf.” Pyfer admitted that the round in which he lost his sight was a tough one. “I fell that round, couldn’t get it back, and he did well on the calf.”

He had a strong message for his detractors too. “To all my haters: Suck a fat d***. I wasn’t even supposed to be here. I give 100 percent every time. We’ll adjust, we’ll return. Thanks to all my sponsors, everyone who supports me. Good job, Jack.”

Pyfer’s first UFC main event had a lot of buzz. He’d previously scored finishes in five consecutive fights, including a 3-0 record inside the octagon. But against Hermansson, his most experienced opponent yet, Pyfer couldn’t muster enough offense.

At 27, this middleweight prospect still has time on his side. He can bounce back from this setback. There’s plenty of time to turn things around.
