- Joe Pyfer clarified a few things about his recent loss to Jack Hermansson
- “Bodybagz” swore to adjust his game and return to his winning ways
Joe Pyfer has spoken about his tough decision loss Jack Hermansson at UFC Vegas 86 and he wants a few things to be clear to everybody.
Joe blames an eyeball punch
Speaking on social media, “Bodybagz” insisted that “The Joker” did not hurt him even though his battered face says the complete opposite. According to Pyfer, he got hit in his eyeball and it eventually took a toll on his vision as the fight went on.
“I just want to say I’m okay, despite how my face looks,” Pyfer said in the video. “I wasn’t rocked. I got punched in the eyeball, I couldn’t see. He did a good job on the calf. I feel like when I lost vision, I failed that round — I lost that round — and then just I couldn’t get it back, and then he did a good job on the calf.”

Haters hate, winners improve
Pyfer also took the opportunity to lash out at his “haters.” But ultimately, “Bodybagz” vowed to work on his game and bounce back stronger.
“To all my haters, suck a fat d**k. I wasn’t supposed to be here anyway. I give it 100 percent every time, and yeah, we’ll make adjustments, and we’ll come back. Thank you to all my sponsors. Thank you to everybody who supports me. And yeah, good job, Jack,” he continued.
The defeat saw Pyfer ending his unbeaten streak under the UFC banner. Prior to losing to Hermansson, Pyfer was undefeated in his first three fights, all by way of finishes. He now has a pro MMA record of 12-3.
As for Hermansson, he has now returned to the win column after losing Roman Dolidze via TKO at UFC Orlando.
