UFC Fight Night 210: Tanner Boser vs. Rodrigo NascimentoBetting Information
Fighting in the 30th match of his career, Boser (20-8-1) seeks his first win in 14 months and 21st overall. The fighter known as “The Bulldozer” will aim to duplicate his knockout victory over Ovince St. Preux and boost his chances of fighting as a title contender in the 265-pound division. The Canadian is 4-3 in the UFC and three of his four victories ended via knockout. He fought the likes of former interim UFC heavyweight king Ciryl Gane, Ilir Latifi, and former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski Boser, however, will have his hands full against Nascimento, who is a known submission specialist that can also strike when needed.
Known in the MMA circles as “Yogi Bear,” Nascimento (8-1, 1 no contest) hopes to erase the stinging results in his last two UFC matches with a win against Boser. He started his UFC career with a second-round submission win over Don’Tale Mayes in March 2020 to go 8-0. However, he absorbed the first loss of his career when he was knocked out by Chris Daukaus. In his last fight in July 2020 against Alan Baudot, the referee stopped the contest and initially ruled a technical knockout win for the Brazilian. However, his victory was overturned after he tested positive for ritalinic acid. The match was ruled a no contest. Nascimento will rely on his mat skills and submission expertise to beat Boser and move up in the UFC heavyweight division rankings.

Boser vs. Nascimento Summary
On paper, this is a classic striker vs. grappler matchup in the heavyweight division. However, both fighters are capable of delivering big hits and upstaging the rest of the card with an action-packed slobber-knocker. Boser needs to keep his vertical base to stand a chance against Nascimento, whose six of his eight wins were via the submission variety. On the other hand, the Brazilian must withstand the Canadian fighter’s strikes and tire him down with tieups and takedowns. Nascimento’s wrestling and jiu-jitsu will be his major weapon in his fight against Boser, who will rely on his kicks to beat his rival. UFC fight picks and parlays are raving for a Nascimento victory if the fight goes to the mat but Boser can overturn this if he keeps the fight away from the fence and the mat.
