Wrestling great Bonicall has his opponent on Sept. 27 Dana White’s Contender Collection.

During Saturday’s UFC San Diego telecast, promotion officials announced that Nickel (2-0) will face Donovan Beard (6-1) in his second Contenders series of the year.

A three-time NCAA Division I National Champion and three-time Big 10 Champion, Nickal represents one of the hottest prospects in MMA right now. After making his debut at Jorge Masvidal’s iKon FC 3 earlier this year – winning by knockout – the middleweight entered the Contenders series last Tuesday, dominating Zachary Borrego and finishing in just one minute. submitted him within.

Borrego lost weight during the game and didn’t have much to offer Nickel. He will likely get a tougher test from current Cage Fury FC middleweight champion Beard.

Beard defeated Miles Lee in late July for the then-vacant CFFC 185-pound title.

After Nickel’s Contenders debut, UFC president Dana White noted that the wrestler “looks incredible,” adding that “the only reason I didn’t sign him tonight is because he’s 2-0 now. .”

If Nickel wins again, the UFC will almost certainly lock down the potential future star.
