Undefeated star in the rising Bo Nickal continues to finish every opponent the promotion puts in front of him. At this past Saturday’s UFC 300, he stopped Cody Brundage via a second round submission.

One who wasn’t impressed by the performance was undefeated superstar Khamzat Chimaev.

“This wrestling was big bullshit,” Chimaev wrote on social media Nickal’s win.

During the UFC 300 post-fight news conference, Nickal commented on Khamzat’s comment.

“This guy’s crazy, man,” Nickal said. “Obviously, like I said, I’m not happy with the way I performed either, so it’s easy to be critical. It’s easy to be critical of me, a guy who has less experience, but at the end of the day, I’m getting finishes, this guy is winning decisions. He’s gassing out at the end of rounds, I’m widening the gap.”

Bo Nickal predict a fight against Chimaev

Nickal went as far as offering an early prediction of how a future fight with Chimaev would play out.

“If we ever fight, he’s coming out hot, but I’m probably winning the first round, second round, third round against this dude and widening the gap. Every day I’m widening the gap on that guy, to be honest.”

Chimaev will fight former middleweight title holder Robert Whittaker next. The pairing will headline UFC’s debut event in Saudi Arabia on June 22.
