I discovered Bo because of wrestling. I’m a huge wrestling fan, I love wrestling, I love collegiate wrestling more, to be exact. I saw Bo in New York City, Madison Square Garden, his first year competing for the national title. He finished second, but I was so amazed at the way he was competing, the moves he was going for, how bold he was, and man, he’s like a knockout artist in wrestling – he’s a pin. Not only will he stress you out; He’s trying to get you out of there and discourage you. It is no accident. I think he holds the pins record for the weight class he was in or some crazy stats like that. He’s crazy, and what he’s done is impressive. I know he definitely led the country with that weight. I’ve been watching him since his first year, then his second year, then his first year, and I was like, “This guy is a monster, brother.” Then I train with him and find out how he got into MMA. His wrestling style when he gets to MMA will translate well.

Forget about just watching fights. There aren’t a lot of fights I’d fly for, but I’ll be right there alive for these.” battle.”

Not just in mixed martial arts. and what I would have been able to do in wrestling.So there is no doubt that I am the best wrestler to have entered the sport and again, I am not trying to take anything away from the guys who are competing.Henry Segudo, Kamaru Usman, another man that comes to mind Aaron Biko, he is A friend of mine, a lot of respect for him, I agree with all these guys. I want all these guys to win trophies.”
Nichal added, “For me, it’s not even about being the future champion. I want to be the No. 1 man in the future on the planet. I think out of all of those who put pressure on me, they put pressure on me really hard and I want that pressure and that’s what I live for. I am.” I live the big moments.”
