Tanner Boser adamant on not letting UFC Fight Night 210 bout go to the judges: ‘I have to finish the fight’

LAS VEGAS – Tanner Boser doesn’t want to go the distance.

The UFC heavyweight is determined of getting the job done within the three rounds scheduled for his bout against Rodrigo Nascimento on the main card of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 210 at the UFC Apex. And it’s not that Boser (20-8-1 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is just looking for a quick night at the office, is that the Canadian doesn’t trust the Las Vegas judges.

“The judges here screwed me once big time and I had a really close one that didn’t go my way,” Boser told reporters including MMA Junkie at Wednesday’s media day. “So I certainly can’t find any reason that I’m going to get the benefit of the doubt should the fight not be an absolute blowout.

“So yeah, I think I have to finish the fight.”

The bout against Nascimento (8-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) marks Boser’s first fight of 2022. The 31-year-old is used to being very active in his fight schedule, so he’s glad to be back fighting.

“It’s been more than a year, which is the longest I’ve ever had in between fights in my entire career, so I’m excited to get back and get paid.”
