The former Penn State wrestler has gotten a heavy push since joining the UFC in late 2022. Last year, Bo Nickal fought twice in the octagon, with both fights coming on pay-per-view main cards. For what it’s worth, he defeated both Jamie Pickett and newcomer Val Woodburn inside of one round.

Following that win over the latter last July, Bo Nickal went on a bit of a hiatus. However, he’s now set to return next month, at UFC 300. There, Nickal will meet the rising Cody Brundage, who has won two in a row. The Factory X talent last defeated Zachary Reece last December by first-round knockout.

While fans are excited for Bo Nickal’s return next month, they’re not happy where it’s at. The middleweight prospect will fight on the fourth fight on the main card of UFC 300. The bout is ahead of others, such as Charles Oliveira vs. Arman Tsarukyan, Holly Holm vs. Kayla Harrison, and Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Cody Garbrandt.

When the UFC 300 main card was released earlier this month, many fans were naturally stunned at Bo Nickal’s placement. On his YouTube channel, the middleweight prospect responded to the criticism. There, Nickal stated that he didn’t care, and joked that he should go to fans’ jobs and boo them in a role reversal.

“It also feels good to be on the main card.” Bo Nickal stated before flipping off the camera on his YouTube channel, discussing his UFC 300 return. “Just doing me baby, I don’t really care to be honest. I could fight wherever I like that it makes people mad. I think that’s so funny. ‘You don’t deserve it, blah, blah blah’. I’m like, okay, thank you. I think that all of these people, it’s like that one thing where, I should go to their job.”

He continued, “They get a raise, and I’ll be like ‘Boo! Boo! You don’t deserve it! You don’t deserve it you bum you’ve only been working here two years! This guy Jim over here has been working three you freaking scumbag! You deserve a pay cut, you idiot’. At the end of the day the decision was made because I probably sell more. More people want to see me, why wouldn’t they put me there if more people wanted to see me?”

“At the end of the day, the most watched spot is the prelim. The main prelim. If they wanted people to see me, they would put me at the main prelim.” Bo Nickal concluded. “But the reality is they want to sell more pay-per-views, so they put me on the pay-per-view. It doesn’t affect me, I get paid the same… These people are all pressed about it, and dude, I could not care less.”
