Bo Nickal To Face Donovan Beard In ‘Dana White’s Contender Series’ September 27

Just four days after his 62-second submission victory over Zach Borrego, Bo Nickal already has his next fight.

The former Penn State wrestling star will take on Donovan Beard in his third professional fight at “Dana White’s Contender Series” on Tuesday, September 27 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nickal is now 2-0 in his professional career after Tuesday night’s victory. He will face Beard, who has a 7-1 record as a professional, in what is most likely his final “test” before potentially finding himself in the UFC.

Before his MMA career, Nickal cemented himself as one of Penn State wrestling’s best, claiming three individual NCAA titles and a phenomenal 183-7 overall record. He won the 2019 Dan Hodge Trophy, which is awarded annually to the top wrestler in the nation.
