BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT CONTENDERS’ BOUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) departs APEX for a special “Fight Night” extravaganza at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, on Sat., March 25, 2023, featuring a pair of thrilling 135-pound bouts. Surging No. 4-ranked contender Marlon Vera goes for his fifth consecutive win when he takes on exciting finisher and No. 5-seeded Cory Sandhagen. In UFC San Antonio’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, former women’s 135-pound champion and current No. 3-ranked Holly Holm battles Yana Santos (No. 4).

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.
