PIVOTAL FLYWEIGHT FRACAS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Arena CDMX in Mexico City, Mexico, on Feb. 24, 2024, with a pivotal Flyweight fracas between former 125-pound kingpin, Brandon Moreno, and most recent title challenger, Brandon Royval, who replaces the red-hot (and injured) Iraqi “Prince,” Amir Albazi. In UFC Mexico City’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, top-ranked Featherweight contenders, Yair Rodriguez (No. 3) and Brian Ortega (No. 4), will run it back after their initial encounter ended prematurely via gross injury.

Pyfer was a massive betting favorite entering this bout and he didn’t disappoint. It may have taken a little longer to put a hurting on Amedovski, but Pyfer eventually found his opening. With just over one minute left in the first round Pyfer launched a perfectly-timed straight right that caught Amedovski behind the ear. Amedovski crumbled to the canvas and Pyfer went to connect with another punch as the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

Pyfer, who turned 27 tonight, is now 10-2 in his professional MMA career. The man known as “Bodybagz” looks to be the real deal at 185 pounds and should get a good push from the promotion moving forward. Pyfer did say he needs a little time to fill out his middleweight frame so we wouldn’t expect him back in the Octagon until early 2023.
