It didn’t take long for the UFC to find another fight for Tanner Boser.
One of Canada’s top heavyweight prospects, Boser (16-5-1) was supposed to debut at UFC 240 on July 27 in Edmonton, Alberta, but his bout was canceled just days out when opponent Giacomo Lemos failed a drug test.
Boser has won four of his last fights, including a unanimous decision win over UFC and Bellator veteran Chase Gormley. The 28-year-old is coming off of a fourth-round leg kick TKO of Jared Kilkenny from a Unified MMA show in May.
Spitz will be making his fourth UFC appearance and his first since June of last year. He is 1-2 inside the Octagon, sandwiching a 24-second TKO of Anthony Hamilton between losses to Walt Harris and Mark Godbeer.
