Bo Nickal willing to help out Jake Paul for his MMA debut

Paul has already signed with Professional Fighters League (PFL) with the intention of making his MMA debut later this year. Paul is currently slated to finally fight Tommy Fury in a boxing ring next weekend.

Paul's opponent and fight date are currently unclear, but the knowledge that he will soon be switching from boxing to mixed martial arts is fascinating.

Paul has already begun some MMA training, which includes kicking and grappling, but he is still new to the discipline.

Although Paul's experience in high school wrestling is undoubtedly beneficial, if he wants to have a successful MMA career in the future, he will need to get some really solid training.

Nickal, a three-time NCAA Division I national wrestling champion, will make his UFC debut next month. Since the 27-year-old fighter is one of the most exciting prospects to enter MMA in a while, Nickal has had numerous chances to improve his future career prospects.

This includes joining Paul's newest business, Betr, the first micro-betting app in the world.

Nickal is hopeful that his new friendship with Paul will result in some beneficial gym time for both of them.

“He’s doing such awesome things in boxing and in the media space. I’m sure we’re going to be training together. I know he just signed with the PFL and hopefully, he’ll be taking an MMA fight soon. I’m sure that I’ll be able to help him out a little bit on that end.”

“100%,” said Nickal when asked if he’d help train Paul. “I’m super excited to train with him. Not only to be able to help him out a little bit on the MMA/grappling side but also to learn from him. He’s had a ton of experience boxing, so it would be awesome to be able to get together and work together.”

Nickal, who has a perfect 3-0 record in professional MMA, will take on middleweight veteran Jamie Pickett on March 4 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at UFC 285.
