Joe Pyfer on criticism received for being the ‘hardest puncher’
During the recent media day, Joe Pyfer shared his thoughts on people refusing to believe that he’s the hardest puncher in the UFC.
“This * pisses me off,” Pyfer said as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I hit the * machine, the same machine, and I hit it with a 16-ounce glove. For all these nerds out there that don’t understand science, I hit it with a 16-ounce glove.
That means I didn’t even get to hit it as hard as I could because I had a big pad. So I broke the record with a big glove, I broke it four or five times, I broke it in front of the operations guys.
Joe Pyfer on what he’s capable of doing to Jack Hermansson
“I think I knock Jack out, he’s got a 29 percent takedown accuracy, I’ve watched all of his videos extensively.
He’s very desperate with a lot of his takedowns and I think they’re very slow. I think what you guys are going to realize is there’s a big speed differential between me and Jack. There’s a big boxing differential between me and Jack.
We can have all these plans all we want but when you get in there and you feel somebody’s presence and you feel their intention and you can see that look in their face that they’re trying to hurt you, I think sometimes it can either make or break somebody that you’re fighting.
So I want to hurt him and I’m ready to bang for 25 minutes, so let’s go, brother, let’s rumble”.
