Former NCAA wrestling national champion, Bo Nickal, has potentially secured one of the greatest wins of his career with a victory on Dana White‘s Contender Series.
The 26-year-old made light work of Zack Borrego in his DWCS headliner on August 9. He was arguably the favorite regarding betting predictions on the card. Moreover, the American has been touted as one of the most hyped athletes in recent times.
Nickal secured victory by getting Borrego’s back and putting it down via rear-nacked choke hardly a minute into the fight.
Nickal’s victory gained a lot of attraction on news outlets and multiple social media platforms. On Twitter, we saw the reaction of numerous celebrities, including his compatriot Jorge Masvidal.

Nickal has only fought two professional fights in his MMA career so far. He caught the attention of UFC President Dana White during his debut fight against John Noland at iKON FC 3 back in June.
