Pyfer (12-3 MMA) had entered his first career UFC main event sporting a five-fight win streak, his most recent being a second-round submission victory over Abdul Razak Alhassan this past October. ‘Bodybagz’ had gone a perfect 3-0 inside of the Octagon since joining the promotion in July of 2022.

Meanwhile, Jack Hermansson (24-8 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since suffering a TKO loss to Roman Dolidze 14 months ago at UFC Orlando. ‘The Joker’ had gone 2-3 over his previous five fights, earning wins over Edmen Shahbazyan and Chris Curtis during that stretch.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 86 main event proved to be a hard-fought back and forth affair that went the full twenty-five minutes. Joe Pyfer was able to get off to a strong start in the fight, dominating ‘The Joker’ in the opening five minutes. Round two proved to be more of the same, although Hermansson did find some offense in the late stages of the frame. After being down 2-0 after the opening ten minutes, Jack Hermansson began to take control of the fight in round three thanks to his low kicks and jab. After busting up Pyfer in rounds three and four while on the feet, Hermansson switched things up in the final five minutes. ‘The Joker’ took the fight to the floor midway through the final round and proceeded to smother ‘Bodbagz’ on the canvas on route to a unanimous decision win.
