This is it. The last week of Dana White’s Contender Season 6 is upon us. Bo Nickal is back. The stakes are high. Five more UFC contracts are on the line.
Nickal (2-0), an award-winning collegiate wrestler and one of MMA’s hottest prospects in years, came out on week three of this year’s DWCS with a dominant win over Zachary Borrego. More impressively, Borrego had missed the weight, but Nickal didn’t even flinch.
However, he did not receive a contract and was instead brought back for a second fight. That might raise some eyebrows considering UFC president Dana White signed the 17-year-old just last week, but then again, this was only Nickal’s second pro fight.
You can assume that with a win on Tuesday, Nickal will be in the UFC – although he gets his toughest test yet against Donovan Beard.
Beard is a CFFC veteran and currently holds the promotion’s middleweight title.
