Drops airtight decision
June 6, 2021
Boser lost to Ilir Latifi via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
It's a tough break for Boser, who dominated the significant striking numbers in the first two rounds. When it was all said and done, he had recorded 45 significant strikes compared to just 10 for Latifi. Nonetheless, Boser was taken down twice and surrendered 6:38 worth of control time, which was not a good look in the eyes of the judges. Despite the defeat knocking Boser down to 3-3 under the UFC banner, the company needs heavyweight roster depth and will likely recognize the tough break here. We'll see more of the Canadian in the future.

Drops snoozer as heavy favorite
November 7, 2020
Boser lost to Andrei Arlovski via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN+ 40 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Boser and Arlovski were both hesitant from the get-go, but it was Boser who landed a left hand, as well as connect with a couple kicks. He did eat a right hand in the final seconds, so the round could have gone either way. The second round was also low-output on both sides, with Boser landing a few leg kicks and more overall volume, but Arlovski ended the frame with a spinning attack that seemed to connect. Boser picked up the pace a bit in Round 3, partially landing a right hand and landing a few more leg kicks after that. Boser ate a big right hand at the midway point and another with about a minute left, but with Arlovski still hesitant to launch combos, he was able to withstand the damage. Boser ended up winning the striking battle 47 to 38 (unofficially), but the more powerful strikes from Arlovski seemed to gain the favor of the judges. There's no way to sugar coat this one. It's a bad loss for Boser, who had a chance to sneak into the rankings with a big win against a well-known opponent. Now, it's back to the drawing board against middling heavyweights.
