Tanner Boser knocks out Ovince Saint Preux

Very hard to tell if Tanner Grabbed the fence on second look. Seemed like he did initially but after rewatching it looked like he closed hand. But still not certain! Either way massive win for Boser!

The knuckle fence grab may need to be explained more in the rule meetings.

OSP gives away the first round of his fights like he’s Mayweather. Boxing you have 8-12 rounds to work your way back in the fight . OSP needs a better strategy. Von Preux? ! #UFCVegas30
