Boser inks UFC Contract, Debuts at UFC 240 in Edmonton


Unified MMA Heavyweight champion and #1 Heavyweight in Canada Tanner “The Bulldozer” Boser has reportedly finally signed with the UFC. Boser is expected to make his debut at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Alberta on July 27 against undefeated Brazilian Giacomo Lemos. Although an official announcement of the signing has not been made by the UFC the fight will likely take place on the preliminary card.

Tanner Boser will finally step into the Octagon after several years of speculation if he would ever ink a UFC contract. Boser has had prior talks about signing with the worldwide leader in MMA but for whatever reason the signing never materialized. Boser signed with Absolute Championship Berkut and later with M-1 Global. Boser has put together a career record of 16-5-1 and most recently defended his Unified Heavyweight Title in a 4th round TKO of Jared Kilkenny. Boser also holds notable wins over the likes of Chase Gormley, DJ Linderman, Dave Cryer, Rakim Cleveland, Joe Yager, Tony Lopez, Victor Valimaki and the late Tim Hague among others.

Giacomo Lemos will also be making his UFC debut and comes into the bout with an unblemished record of 6-0 with a 100% finishing rate including 5 knockouts. Lemos last two fights took place in South Korea where he won and defended the Angel’s Fighting Openweight Title. Lemos also finished his first four opponents on his home soil in Brazil.

UFC 240 goes down July 27 at Rogers Place in Edmonton Alberta. In the main event Max Holloway defends the Featherweight Title against former UFC Lightweight Champ Frankie Edgar and in the co-main event Cris Cyborg returns to take on rising Canadian Featherweight Felicia Spencer. Other Canadians on the card include Olivier Aubin-Mercier, Alexis Davis, Gillian Robertson, Marc-Andre Barriault and Gavin Tucker.
