“Bulldozer” Boser calls for Maurice Greene next post-fight
Tanner Boser’s finest moment in the UFC octagon happened Saturday night–and what a finish it was.
The Bonnyville heavyweight knocked out Philipe Lins after two minutes and 41 seconds, catching the Brazilian with an overhand right hand and an accurate, thunderous six punch flurry which dropped Lins to the mat.
Two more hammerfists landed before referee Herb Dean was able to end the bout, Boser’s second win in the UFC, and a massive response after a loss to Ciryl Gane in December.
“When I hit him with a couple of the punches I saw his eyes and I could tell that he was hurt. So I swarmed him and when he went down I knew he was done,” said Boser in a post-fight interview.
Just moments after the victory, Boser was eager to arrange his next fight.
“[Maurice Greene] said he wants to fight on ‘Fight Island,’ and I’m not hurt. If he wins [against Gian Villante], yes, I want to fight him on ‘Fight Island.’ If he loses, then maybe we’ll talk about a different opponent because that wouldn’t really make sense.”
Greene beat Villante in a third round submission later that night and appeared to want the fight.
