Bo Nickal’s Next UFC Fight Scheduled For July 8
Former Penn State wrestler Bo Nickal is ready to make another run in the Octagon.
After his wrestling days at Penn State, Nickal began making a name for himself in the world of mixed martial arts. Currently fighting in the UFC, the three-time collegiate national champion holds a 4-0 professional record and debuted with the UFC in March.
With a deep background in wrestling, Nickal has used his grappling skills to win his last three fights in the first round, all by submission. In his first fight on a UFC main card, Nickal defeated Jamie Pickett with a tight triangle choke.
However, the next fighter in Nickal’s path may pose more of a challenge.
Gore, Nickal’s 28-year-old opponent, boasts a 5-2 record in MMA. Nicknamed “Mr. Vicious,” Gore won his last fight in the second round, also by submission. Gore’s ability to quickly end fights may pose a new challenge to Nickal, who has hardly been challenged in his career thus far.
UFC 290’s main card will begin at 10 p.m. and will be available for streaming exclusively on ESPN+.
