UFC Star Joe Pyfer Breaks Arm And Dislocates Elbow After Brutal Slam


MMA fighter Joe Pyfer had his arm dislocated and elbow broken in the most brutal of fashions - and, unsurprisingly, it doesn't make for particularly pleasant viewings.

During his bout with Dustin Stolzfus on Dana White's Contender Series, Pyfer was picked up and dumped on his head with 45 seconds to go in the very first round.

With Pyfer's arm stretched out in mid-air, it instantly hyperextended upon impact with the octagon canvas.

After the slam both fighters instantly stopped scrapping when they saw the elbow bending awkwardly behind Pyfer's grounded body.

Pyfer just looked down at the sorry sight of his limp right arm as Stolzfus consoled his gutted opponent.

The referee immediately called off the fight and awarded Stolzfus the first-round TKO.

UFC president White, who was sitting cage side, looked away when replays of the incident appeared on the big screen inside the UFC Apex arena.

That being said, the notoriously-hard-to-please boss was impressed with what he'd seen and thus awarded UFC contracts to all five winners of the fights - including Stolzfus.

"First of all, the thing that bummed me out was it was just heating up," White said

"I was really getting into it when he made everybody puke.

"This kid, his record is now 13-1. He's got a tonne of experience.

"You could tell in there, no matter how the fight went. He was poised.

"He's a vet, super sharp. Not only is he in, I actually expect big things from this kid."

As for Pyfer, he now faces a lengthy stint out of the sport due to his broken arm and dislocated elbow - that's if he even contemplates returning after such a horrendous injury.
