I’m coaching very moderately at the moment, optimistically, to steer clear of surgical treatment,” Pyfer stated to BJPENN.com. “I’m simply seeing how my frame is responding and it’ll be dependent in this grappling fit and seeing how I think. If I’ve to get surgical treatment that’s what I’ve to do, however we can see. Those following few weeks will inform so much as though I want surgical treatment more than likely now not till the autumn. If I think just right and my frame isn’t hurting, we can see perhaps overdue summer time.”

He’s 1-4 within the UFC, I’m 2-0 we don’t seem to be that a ways aside, he has 5 fights within the UFC, I’ve two,” Pyfer stated. “So, for the individuals who suppose I’m thus far forward of him, simply because some particular person put me forward of him of their scores doesn’t make me that a ways forward of him.
“On the finish of the day, we’re the most productive on the earth so why can’t I struggle that guy? I’ve yet another win than he does, so, completely I would like that struggle,” Pyfer persisted. “I’ve known as him out a large number of instances, I’ve been disrespectful in calling him out, now not looking to be, however utterly brushing aside his abilities, brushing aside his win. It sort of feels to be chasing a rabbit at nighttime, I’m now not going to get it. They don’t suppose it is sensible but it surely’s non-public for me, it’s revenge, it’s redemption. I’ll at all times need that struggle.”

“It’s were given to make sense. Why would I smash into the top-15 but, I’m nonetheless on a base contract. It doesn’t make sense to me. I’m now not silly, I’m now not dumb, I’m now not going to struggle anyone who’s a top-15 contender that could be a difficult struggle and I can have a warfare with and god forbid I misplaced, it’s like I’m now not assured a lot,” Pyfer concluded.
