UFC on ESPN+ 40 Highlights: Andrei Arlovski Outpoints Tanner Boser

Andrei Arlovski vs. Tanner Boser was a straight-up heavyweight slugfest. 

The two fighters met in a heavyweight bout on Saturday night (November 7, 2020) at the UFC on ESPN+ 40 event from the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This wasn’t the greatest fight you’ll ever see. They had some moments with big shots being thrown including the end of the second round.

Through the first two rounds, Andrei had landed 18 out 52 strikes while Tanner was 23 out of 59. In the end, the judges gave the win to Andrei.
