What a difference a week can make.Week 1, 2 after Dana White’s now infamous “Be Joe Pyfer” speech Dana White’s Contenders Season 6 Four fights were completed and five fighters were awarded UFC contracts.

Many in hindsight called it the best Contenders series ever. Whether this will stand the test of time remains to be seen, but luckily it ignited the fighters’ flames on the week three cards. That includes standout wrestler Boni Carr, who went 1-0 along with Greg Hardy and Danyel Wolff as one of the least experienced Contenders series fighters of all time.

pros and cons



  • excellent wrestling
  • heavy hands
  • Submit a threat
  • good left hand


  • Hand too low/too wide
  • single kick

Zachary Borrego


  • quick launcher
  • good output
  • good ground and pounds
  • heavy body kick


  • load
  • hand too low
  • suspicious jaw
  • lack of head movement
  • Sitting too long in your pocket
  • TDD needs work

prophecy: Attention is focused on NCAA Division I wrestler Bo Nickal. no problem.

On the other hand, Borrego is also a great athlete. He is a secondary football player and a silver medalist in the Taekwondo Junior Olympics.

Having said that, this fight is clearly for Nikal. There isn’t a lot of footage of Nickal’s amateur fights, but it’s nice to see wrestlers knocking players down. That being said, Borrego isn’t hard to play and has been knocked out before. I do see Nikkal being able to land with his left hand, but wrestling is the clear path to victory. Regardless of how Nickel wins, I think it’s important for Nickel to get a development deal, not a UFC contract.
