The UFC touches down in Las Vegas ahead of Super Bowl Sunday.

Main Event

After a string of knockouts in the Octagon, Joe Pyfer is set to headline his first UFC event. The unranked prospect meets returning top contender Jack Hermansson in a middleweight matchup that’s scheduled for five rounds or less at UFC Vegas 86.

‘Bodybagz’ has surely lived up to the hype so far since bursting onto the UFC scene. Pyfer, 27, earned a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series with a knockout back in 2022. He’s followed it up with three more knockouts over the likes of Alen Amedovski, Gerald Meerschaert, and Abdul Razak Alhassan.

Hermansson is back after more than a year away. Injuries have kept ‘Joker’ out of the Octagon after a submission loss to Roman Dolidze in Dec. 2022. Currently ranked at #11, Hermansson seeks to prove he’s still a force to be reckoned with at middleweight.

C0-Main Event

Featherweights collide in Saturday’ co-headliner as ‘Dynamite’ Dan Ige takes on Andre Fili.

Ige will try to rebound from a loss to Bryce Mitchell last December while Fili seeks to build off his last performance, a TKO win over Lucas Almeida at UFC 296.

Also On The Card:

UFC veteran Michael Johnson returns to action against Darrius Flowers, who’s fresh off his UFC debut last summer. Don’t forget this other middleweight scrap between Brad Tavares and Gregory Rodrigues which takes place on the main card, too.

On the prelims lies a very fun welterweight matchup between Max Griffin and Jeremiah Wells.
