UFC Vegas 60 Video: Joe Pyfer knocks out Alen Amedovski in the first round with a brutal knockout


Joe Pyfer has definitely turned his life around after he was homeless not that long ago and now he has his first win inside the octagon.

The Contender Series veteran earned a victory on Saturday at UFC Vegas 60 after unloading a huge overhand right hand that sent Alen Amedovski crashing to the canvas like his off button just got pressed. Pyfer followed with one more punch for good measure with the referee rushing in to stop the fight at 3:55 in the first round.

An emotional Pyfer battled back tears, but he smiled in triumph.

“I’m so fortunate to be here,” Pyfer said. I love the game. Just being free out here. We know he drops his hand when he throws. We got the job done.

“Thank you to Dana White. The man offered me money on the side as well as a home to stay for the following year .”

Pyfer was on the attack with an aggressive game plan from the jump as he walked down Amedovski while launching well-timed boxing combinations. Amedovski was doing an admirable job with his counters while attempting to circle away from the heavy punches coming from his opponent.

As time ticked away, Pyfer really started loading up on his strikes as he stalked Amedovski across the cage with hopes that he could earn a finish in his octagon debut.

Pyfer landed an overhand right that destroyed Amedovski’s ears. The Italian fighter crumbled to the mat with Pyfer launching one more punch before the referee rushed in to save Amedovski before further harm could be inflicted upon him.

After earning his UFC contract, Pyfer was a promising prospect and this performance has only increased that interest.
