Jon Jones Excited for Bo Nickal’s UFC Debut at UFC 285

Jon Jones Shares Excitement About Bo Nickal’s UFC Debut

At UFC 285 media day, Jon Jones shared his excitement over Bo Nickal, who is set to make his UFC debut against Jamie Pickett.

“I’m super excited for Bo Nickal – just an American wrestler,” Jones said. “He represents that grit, that hard work, and I can see him going extremely far in this sport. He has one of the greatest martial arts down already, which I believe is wrestling. Us wrestlers, we get to dictate the pace of a fight. Things get tough on us, we just take it to the ground. And we also can avoid being taken down and get back to our feet when we’re in trouble, and Bo has that down. I think he’s going to do awesome.”

At 27 years old, Nickal is one of the most decorated wrestlers in the sport. Nickal is a three-time NCAA Division I Wrestling National Champion and gold medalist at the 2019 U23 World Championship.

What’s Next?

Jones will be moving up to the heavyweight division for the first time in his career, fighting Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC Heavyweight Championship at UFC 285 on March 4 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Meanwhile, Bo Nickal is set to make his highly-anticipated UFC debut at UFC 285 in the middleweight division against Jamie Pickett.
