Dana White Contender Series Week 3 Breakdown

Bo Nickal (1-0) vs. Zachary Borrego (4-0)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Bo Nickal-240096.00%
Zachary Borrego+12007.69%

Tonight's featured bout hosts NCAA D-1 wrestling standout Bo Nickal against the undefeated Zachary Borrego.

Nickal, 26, compiled a 120-3 record, including three national championships when competing for Penn State at 197-pounds from 2016-2019. The middleweight standout made the transition to MMA earlier this year and quickly defeated John Noland in just 33-seconds.

Borrego, 26, also made his professional MMA debut earlier this year. The Texas-native secured back-to-back knockout victories over James Neville and William Vandervier before taking a unanimous decision victory over Tommie Britton this past June.

Pick - Bo Nickal (-2400) (Bet $2400 to Win $100)

Paulo Renato Junior (10-1) vs. Jamal Pogues (8-3)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Jamal Pogues-30575.31%
Paulo Rento Junior+25528.17%

Renato Junior, 28, heads into tonight's event looking to secure his 10th consecutive victory as the Brazilian contender has also finished all 10 of his opponents via knockout or retirement on the stool.

Pogues, 26, looks to earn a spot in the UFC tonight, and if he were to do so, he'll look to put together back-to-back wins for the first time since 2019. The former Bellator fighter hasn't competed since September 2020 due to a series of injuries.

Pick - Paulo Renato Jr. (+255) (Bet $100 to Win $255)

Erik Silva (8-1) vs. Anvar Boynazarov (3-0)

OddsResultImplied Chance
-120Erik Silva54.55%
+140Anvar Boynazarov41.67%

Venezuela's Erik Silva looks to continue his six-year undefeated streak tonight while earning himself a spot on the UFC roster. Silva has won seven straight bouts, including his last four, all by way of submission.

Boynazarov, 33, made the transition over from the world of kickboxing in 2020 and wasted no time in making a statement in MMA as the Uzbekistan-native has three first-round knockouts in his three professional bouts, which have lasted 1:10, 1:39, and most recently, 0:21, this past January.

Pick - Anvar Boynazarov (+120) (Bet $100 to Win $120)

Edgar Chairez (8-3) vs. Clayton Carpenter (5-0)

OddsResultImplied Chance
-285Clayton Carpenter74.03%
+240Edgar Chairez29.41%

Chairez, 26, looks to make it three-straight in addition to earning himself a UFC contract tonight. The Mexican standout has recovered nicely since trading wins for losses before securing back-to-back knockouts over Mefi Monterroso and, most recently, Ivan Hernandez-Flores, this past January.

Carpenter, 26, has secured four finishes in his unblemished 5-0 record, most recently, a 13-second head kick knockout over Rodney Kealohi last December.

Pick - Clayton Carpenter (-285) (Bet $285 to Win $100)

Sandra Lavado (10-2) vs. Karolina Wojcik (8-2)

OddsResultImplied Chance
-215Karolina Wojcik68.25%
+185Sandra Lavado350.09%

Lavado, 28, looks to make it four-straight tonight as the Peru-native contender has three consecutive victories, all by way of decision, most recently, last December.

Wojcik, 27, much-like Lavado, has three-straight wins, all by decision, and looks to make it four straight against Wojcik when vying for a UFC contract tonight.

Pick - Wojcik (-215) (Bet $215 to Win $100)
