Tanner Boser returned to the heavyweight win column earlier today (Sat., June 26, 2021) at UFC Vegas 30 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the rising contender finished veteran Ovince Saint Preux via second-round knockout (knee and punches).
Saint Preux took his time like he usually does and it didn’t bode well for the 38-year-old. Boser landed heavy leg kicks and combinations that stole the momentum early. When ‘OSP’ scored a takedown in Round 2 Boser was able to work his way back to his feet and land a crisp knee inside. Saint Preux was hurt and that allowed Boser to land a powerful right hand followed by some ground-and-pound to secure the finish.

This was the win Boser was hoping for after coming up short against Ilir Latifi in his last trip to the Octagon. The win pushes Boser’s overall UFC record to 4-3 as he tries to punch his way into the division’s top 15 by year’s end.
