From Underdog to Legend: Tresean Gore’s Quest to Shock the MMA World with One of the Greatest UFC Upsets in History

Tresean Gore fought Josh Fremd in his final bout inside the Octagon, and he ultimately prevailed via guillotine choke in round two. Fremd connected on 83% of his important strikes at a distance, but Gore connected on 90% of his significant attempts. Gore scored 10 out of 20 big hits or 50% of his attempts. He ultimately succeeded in stopping seven of the 14 significant headshots. In the encounter, Fremd connected on 24 of 54 crucial hits. He directed 8 of his 35 big hits toward the head, which is a substantial number. Fremd connected on 27 of the 57 total strikes he threw in the match, while Gore connected on 14 of the 25 total strikes he threw.

Last year, the -1400 favorite Mariya Agapova’s loss against Shana Dobson represented the largest betting upset in UFC history. Bo Nickal is a -1600 underdog against Tresean Gore. Thus, a loss would be one of the greatest surprises in the sport’s history.

Can “Mr. Vicious” accomplish this? His overall record of 6-2 hints that he may. Before excelling in Season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), where he got two wins inside the distance, this person began his MMA career in local organizations in 2018.

He then made his UFC debut in 2022, which did not go as expected when he was defeated by Bryan Battle by unanimous decision. When Cody Brundage knocked him out in the second round of his UFC bout, things only got worse for him. But three and a half months later, he triumphed in his first UFC contest. A guillotine choke beat Josh Fremd.

Bo Nickal vs. Tresean Gore. Bo Nickal received just one hit across his three UFC matches. Only Jamie Pickett, it turns out, was able to strike him before being taken down. His other two opponents were brought down without getting a single kick or punch. Tresean Gore is presumably aware that he has little chance of defending takedowns against one of the top wrestlers in America, who also holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Gore’s game is ended if Nickal defeats him.

Therefore, Gore has been focusing on honing his striking abilities rather than honing his TD defense and grappling skills (if he’s savvy). He can only prevail in this battle by way of KO or TKO. Although we don’t think it’s likely, he will at least attempt it. The strongest prediction for this battle is that it won’t go very long. It makes sense to choose Nickal in the market for fight-winners.
