‘A different ball game’: Pros react to Jack Hermansson’s gritty win over Joe Peifer at UFC Vegas 86

Jack Hermansson slammed the gate shut in the UFC Vegas 86 main event.

Facing exciting prospect Joe Pifer, Hermansson overcame a slow start to the fight in the final three rounds and earned a gritty unanimous decision victory. It looked as if Pifer’s power would prevail early, but the more experienced Hermansson began to turn things around in the third round before scoring in the final 10 minutes.

This was Hermansson’s 11th win in 17 UFC bouts, and he has now alternated between wins and losses in his past nine fights. Living up to his nickname “The Joker”, Hermansson has proven to be one of the most unpredictable and difficult fighters in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Hermansson’s fellow fighters were pleased with his effort, with most pointing out the huge gap in octagon time between the leaders and how that affected the outcome.
