There is a lot of hype around three-time NCAA Division I champion wrestler Bo Nickal and his professional debut on Friday just proved why. Nickal’s collegiate wrestling accomplishments at Penn State garnered a lot of attention when he decided to turn pro after impressing in two fights an amateur fighter. At Jorge Masvidal ’s iKON FC 3, Nickal (1-0 MMA) stepped into the cage for the first time as a professional to face fellow debuting fighter John Noland in a middleweight bout. The fight was one-way traffic from the beginning as Nickal offered hard strikes, looking to land a left high kick early. He would not need to use his wrestling skills to get the job done in this one, as a left hand from the southpaw stance wobbled his opponent, and the combination of punches that followed sent Noland (0-1 MMA) crashing to the canvas just 30 seconds into the opening round.
