Bo Nickal has managed to make headlines in the MMA world even though his time in the sport has been short. Currently 3-0 in MMA, The former NCAA Division 1 star is set to make his UFC debut soon after having a successful outing in the Dana White Contender Series.

The dominant performances from Nickal have earned him the comparison to Khamzat Chimaev. Some fans have even started to compare what would happen if the two fighters were to fight.

The American was recently asked about his opinion on Khamzat at the MMA Hour and he said that Khamzat cannot even beat the scale.

“First off, this dude talks about he’s ready to go always, he’s a gangster, this and that – bro, you can’t even beat the scale. What are you doing? This is just a dude that has no accountability, who doesn’t treat the sport professionally. That makes me way less nervous to fight him in the future, because we’re going to fight, and I know that he’s not committed like I am. He’s not willing to do the things that I’m willing to do. Yeah, he’s talented. Yeah, he has skills. But if that’s how you approach the sport, if that’s how you treat it, we’re on different levels,” he said.

He further went on to add that he and Khamzat are completely different.

“People will act like I’m talking crazy because I say I’m ready to go. Chimaev, let’s get it. But the reality is this dude won three national titles in Sweden and then came into MMA and has 10 fights. I’ve been competing since I was 5. I had 120-plus NCAA wrestling matches. I won a U-23 world championship. I’m coming with 10 times the experience you have. So when people say, ‘You’re not ready, stay in your lane,’ y’all don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. So you’ll see what happens once we get in the cage,” Nickal added.
