The 3x NCAA Division I National Champion has big dreams going into his imminent UFC career.
Bo Nickal become a pro this year and is already 2-0. A debut win in June vs. John Noland in a 33-second KO would earn him a shot on the Dana White Contender Series where he submitted Zachary Borrego in 62 seconds to earn back-to-back first round finishes.
This would result in Dana White issuing another fight for Nickal, this time vs. 6-1 pro Donovan Beard who will fight on this season’s finale episode of the Contender Series on September 27.
During his appearance on the MMA Hour, Nickal spoke about his chances on a dream match-up vs. Israel Adesanya and even said he would fight them right now if given the opportunity to.
Nickal is already eyeing which PPV he wants to fight on before his fight vs. Beard. They would like to be on the card for UFC 282 in December which is set to be headlined by Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka in a rematch for the UFC Light Heavyweight championship.
