Bo Nickal lands surprising main card fight on UFC 300 ahead of Charles Oliveira, despite being unranked

Bo Nickal

The hype train behind Bo Nickal is as real as it gets, as evidenced by the surprising placement of his fight on the main card of the historic UFC 300 event.

Nickal vs. Cody Brundage will be the only fight on the main card between two unranked fighters. Furthermore, they will be fighting higher up on the card than names like Jiri Prochazka, Aljamain Sterling, and even Kayla Harrison who was formerly the face of the PFL and makes her UFC debut at UFC 300.

The event itself will be the third centennial event in the promotion’s history, taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on April 13. The night of fights will truly be special and might even go down as the greatest night of fights the UFC has ever provided.
