Bo Nickal on fighting Anthony Hernandez next

In the post-fight press conference, Bo Nickal took the time to explain why Anthony Hernandez is an ideal opponent for his next fight.

“I just think that would be a fun fight, a great fight,” Nickal said, as quoted by “He’s a guy that has great cardio, wrestling, good striking – he’s well-rounded and got a big win in his last fight.

Very shortly, if it’s not my next fight, it will be soon, but that’s the type of guys I want to be fighting. He was just a name that came to my mind because I watched his fight recently, but any of these guys around that ranking, around that part of the division are guys that I’m ready for.

If I have to get a couple more fights before I’m fighting ranked guys, then that’s fine, that’s a discussion between myself and the UFC, but I want to start fighting better guys, and he’s a guy I see as a better fighter”.
