Jack Hermansson already has some ideas on what he would do in case he wins over Joe Pyfer at UFC Fight Night 236: to fight Nassourdine Imavov next.

Hermansson will be facing Pyfer in a main event bout this weekend. The fight is being viewed as something odd by some, with Hermansson being the underdog. Even retired MMA referee John McCarthy believes the fight is a “strange matchup” and asked, “Who has Pyfer fought?” With all this, No. 11 Hermansson has a positive outlook about his upcoming match.

When asked about who he might fight next, “The Joker” said that there was no concrete plan but still named Imavov, who won over Roman Dolidze via a unanimous decision last weekend. Hermansson admitted the fight was not entirely impressive, but he still thinks the fighter is an interesting choice.

“It wasn’t the prettiest fight that I’ve seen, but I like different styles of fights,” Hermansson said during the UFC Fight Night 236 media day this Wednesday. “That was one of those which was just gritty. You could see that they were tired, and it was about who wants the most almost. I enjoyed that fight, and it was kind of exciting even though it wasn’t very beautiful to watch.”

Despite dropping Imavov’s name, Hermansson knows that “the most important thing” in his life now is the fight coming this weekend. The fighter, nonetheless, has a plan for how he would handle the young talent in the cage.

“I think, you know, Joe is gonna, you know, try to come out hard,” Hermansson said in a recent interview with BJPENNDOTCOM. “He knows that he’s powerful, and it’s- I think that he relies on that power and, you know, I’m not going to let him use it. So, the plan is to not get hit and hit him a lot.”
