In the immediate aftermath of the battle, Pyfer shared a tale on Instagram in which he discussed his defeat. He remarked that
For all of my detractors, I say, “Suck a fat d***.” Even if I were here, I wasn’t supposed to be here. Whenever I do something, I give it my absolute best effort, and yes, we will make some tweaks and we will come back. All of my sponsors deserve my gratitude. To everyone who has shown their support, I am grateful. And yeah, Jack, you did a great job.”

Pyfer had been on a five-fight win streak in his mixed martial arts career before to his defeat at the hands of Hermansson. Three of those victories came in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). With a victory over the Norwegian-Swede, the graduate of Dana White’s Contender Series would have been able to propel himself into the top 10 overall in their division.
Taking into account his most recent performance, Pyfer’s record is now 12-3. Even though he is only 27 years old, he still has a significant amount of time left in his career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Joe Pyfer’s advice to troubled youth
In order to become a fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Joe Pyfer had to go through a very challenging journey.
The odds were clearly stacked against him, but he managed to pull through and accomplish his ambition despite the fact that he had a difficult childhood that was made worse by an abusive relationship with his father, that he was abandoned by his family, and that he spent nights sleeping on a park bench.
During an interview with MMA News, the 27-year-old fighter offered his guidance to younger individuals who are going through situations that are comparable to his own. It was him who said:
“I would say that if I were to provide advise, it would be to figure out something that you like but discover something that you love, and if you are able to find something that you love, then I believe that would be something that you will be ready to pursue… Love and happiness are the deepest and most potent of all feelings.
