Cody Brundage on fighting Bo Nickal

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie Radio, Cody Brundage shared his thoughts on claiming a win against Bo Nickal and explained what it’s like to feature in the main card.

“No matter what, you won’t ever prove those people wrong (who think I don’t deserve it),” Brundage said, as quoted by “I’ll go knock out Bo Nickal in the first round and everybody will be like, ‘Well, Bo was just too green.

He didn’t have the experience. It was a fluke. There’ll be a ton of reasons. It won’t be that ‘Cody Brundage is way better than we thought … Cody Brundage is the next champ. Cody Brundage is’ all these things that they’re saying about Bo Nickal now.

It’ll be more, ‘Well, it was a fluke’ or ‘Bo Nickal isn’t as good as we thought.’ I kind of am at peace with that. What other people say and the odds and things like that, it doesn’t really bother me.

It doesn’t really influence my motivation”.

“I know I’m on the main card. I could joke and be like, ‘You know, I carried Bo Nickal to the UFC 300 main card.’ But I know that’s not the case, I know he’s the reason we’re on the main card.

I’m happy to be on the main card, obviously. All the fans complaining, at the end of the day, what that means is you get one fight that you really want to watch (for free), because if our fight sucks so bad it shouldn’t be on the main card, that means one fight that you think should be on the main card, you’re going to get for free”.
