Whether you like it or not, Bo Nickal kicks off the UFC 300 main card.

While still green in MMA, the credentialed wrestler has beaten everybody the UFC has put in front of him. Nickal (5-0) puts his undefeated record on the line again when he takes on UFC veteran Cody Brundage (10-5), arguably his toughest test to date.
