Bo Nickal is an American freestyle wrestling athlete and one of the top contenders in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). A native of Allen, Texas, Bo has been a part of the WWE for 3 years now and has quickly become one of its most popular stars.

Nickal was born in 1996, to parents Young and Krista Nickal. Growing up, he was involved in nearly every sport imaginable; football, basketball, soccer-even water polo. But it wasn’t until high school that he found his true calling: freestyle wrestling. In 2014 he began competing as an amateur wrestler at the international level and just two years later was crowned World Junior Freestyle Wrestling Champion. This accomplishment proved to be a defining moment in his career as it put him on the map as one of the preeminent wrestlers on an international scale.

As Bo advanced through college at Penn State University, where he won three NCAA National Championships for Division 1 Wrestling (2016-2018), his popularity only grew with each success on the mat. During this time period Nickal also caught wind of another opportunity awaiting him if he decided to pursue Mixed Martial Arts: The UFC . After some thought and consideration Bo decided that MMA would provide yet another platform for him to challenge himself athletically while simultaneously building upon his already established fan base from collegiate wrestling fans around America who had followed him since his days dominating college mats throughout Pennsylvania .

In 2020 bo made headway into UFC by signing a four year contract with them which stipulates that he will compete 8 times total over 4 consecutive seasons which starts February 2021 -2025 beginning season one next year! And so far it looks promising as they are already hyping up their excitement about having Bo join their team this upcoming season stating “Bo is sure to bring fireworks when stepping into our octagon”! It’s clear they have big expectations going forward but we know that Bo is always ready to take on any challenge or obstacle presented before him head-on so we can expect great things from this rising star within UFC’s roster come 2021!

Outside of fighting professionally ,when not competing against opponents inside ring/octagons , bo enjoys spending time outdoors running/hiking with friends & family or playing video games . He also loves giving back during holidays by working fundraisers or volunteering at shelters near hometown area . All these qualities combined make up what makes ufc fighter like no other : BO NICKAL !
