Video: Emotional Joe Pyfer reacts to UFC Vegas 86 main event loss: ‘I wasn’t supposed to be here’

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Joe Pyfer has reacted to his big loss.

Pyfer was on the wrong end of his first-ever main event at UFC Vegas 86 last night (Sat., Feb. 10, 2024), dropping a unanimous decision to No. 11-ranked Middleweight Jack Hermansson inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It marked Pyfer’s first loss in the promotion after a scorching start and significant — perhaps premature — push from Dana White and Co.

Just a few hours after his upset loss, “Bodybagz” shared his thoughts on the defeat via social media. And he wasn’t happy.

“I just want to say I’m okay, despite how my face looks,” Pyfer said. “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.

“To all my haters, suck a fat d—k,” Pyfer continued. “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.”

Pyfer had his five-fight win streak snapped and his hype train derailed in one fell swoop. Nevertheless, he is still 3-1 in UFC with three violent finishes.

And he still punches really hard.
