UFC fighters and media members were impressed with Nickal’s performance.
Damn!! BO NICKAL! Would love to see him and Khamzat in a grappling match! Not a fight, because Khamzat is more experienced on the feet. But in a year or 2, I can see that fight happening too!
For now, enjoy the fruits of the labor Bo! #DWCS

Bo Nickal is something else. He wins in less than a minute via triangle. Dropped his opponent with one big overhand right, then showed incredible grappling to get the sub. He is unreal.

There are maybe 3 or 4 people at middleweight who would be a favourite over Bo Nickal. Maybe.
Seems like an exaggeration, but it's not.
