Social media reacts to Bo Nickal’s UFC contract

Bo Nickal has done it again. He got a second win in front of UFC President Dana White and that was enough to finally earn a UFC contract.

Bo Nickal will enter the UFC as one of its best prospects ever. Nickal may have a record of 3-0 presently but that means he has fresh enough legs to see his career take off and fly depending on how the promotion handles him.

Much like baseball and football, prospects in MMA are always talked about. The special one receives the hype and praise that Nickal has received thus far, compare it to Andrew Luck or Bryce Harper. Nickal has the pedigree with his national championships at Penn State that allows the hype to seem more real than ever.

Social media of course was a buzz with reactions from media and fighters alike.
