Bo Nickal vs. Zachary Borrego live results

DWCS Week 3: Bo Nickal vs. Zachary Borrego results and UFC contract winners.

Following a spectacular Week 2 which resulted in 5 UFC contracts, Week 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series will look to continue the furious momentum. DWCS Week 3 features five action-packed bouts, headlined by middleweights Bo Nickal (1-0) vs. Zachary Borrego (3-0).

The opening fight is a women’s strawweight battle against Sandra “Peruvian Zombie” Lavado (10-2) and Karolina “Polish Assasin” Wójcik (8-2). Lavado is a submission artist who Tapology ranks as the No. 1 active Peruvian female fighter. She faces a formidable opponent in Wójcik, who is ranked as Tapology’s No. 2 Polish pound-for-pound woman.

The second fight of the night is a flyweight clash between Edgar “Pitbull” Cháirez (8-3) and Clayton “Concrete” Carpenter (5-0). In this bout, Carpenter will look to extend his undefeated record to six wins against a top Mexican flyweight prospect, Cháirez. With the UFC flyweight division looking for new blood, a strong performance in this bout could likely result in a contract being awarded to the victor.

The third fight of DWCS Week 3 sees featherweights “King” Erik Silva (8-1) vs. Anvar “The Uzbek” Boynazaraov (3-0). Although Boynazarov only has three pro-MMA fights under his belt, as opposed to Silva’s nine, he is a decorated kickboxer and Muay Thai competitor, holding wins over various pro-mixed martial artists, including Georgian UFC fighter Giga Chikadze.

The co-main bout of the evening is a heavyweight brawl against the Brazilian Paulo Renato Jr. (10-1) and Jamal “The Storm Trooper” Pogues (8-3). Renato Jr. was initially slated to face Caio Machado; however, after facing visa-related issues, Machado was replaced by Pogues. Renato Jr. and Pogues have regularly fought in lower weight classes, with Renato Jr. being a former welterweight and Pogues a light-heavyweight.

The headliner for DWCS Week 3 is a highly-anticipated scrap between Nickal and Borrego. Nickal is a former NCAA Division I wrestler, and although he holds just one pro-MMA win, he has garnered the attention of many fans, fighters, and coaches after his knockout win at Jorge Marsvidal’s iKon FC 3. However, he faces a strong opponent in Borrego, who is a silver medalist Junior Olympian in Taekwondo.
