The pros were quick to react following today’s heavyweight contest between Ovince Saint Preux and Tanner Boser at UFC Vegas 30.
OSP (25-16 MMA) was returning to heavyweight for the first time since suffering a split-decision loss to Ben Rothwell in May of 2020 this evening. The former interim light heavyweight title challenger had gone 1-2 over his past three bouts, with his lone win in that time coming over Michel Oleksiejczuk by way of submission.
As for Tanner Boser (20-8-1 MMA), the Canadian standout was coming off a split decision loss to Ilir Latifi in his most recent effort just three weeks ago. That setback marked Boser’s second in a row and third in his past five fights.
Today’s UFC Vegas 30 co-main event proved to be a rather one sided affair. ‘OSP’ never really seemed to get going in the fight, but his opponent Tanner Boser was clearly eager to earn a finish. The Canadian came out throwing bombs and did not stop until Saint Preux hit the canvas midway through round two.

Very hard to tell if Tanner Grabbed the fence on second look. Seemed like he did initially but after rewatching it looked like he closed hand. But still not certain! Either way massive win for Boser!

Beaut finish by Boser.
(Never liked the idea of heavyweight OSP.)
