The UFC Fight Night event on August 5 appears to have gained another fight. Tanner Boser and Aleksa Camur are anticipated to fight at light heavyweight during the event, according to MMA Junkie's Nolan King. It will be a big battle because both fighters are going through difficult times in their careers and could lose their promotions if they suffer a second straight defeat.


Boser is currently on a two-fight losing streak, which includes defeats to Rodrigo Nascimento by split decision at heavyweight and Ion Cutelaba by first-round TKO at light heavyweight. The Canadian had lost four of his previous five fights, with his most recent victory coming in 2021 when he knocked out Ovince Saint Preux in the second round.

Camur is also on a two-fight losing streak after losing to William Knight by unanimous decision and Nicolae Negumereanu by split decision. After an outstanding TKO victory on the Contender Series, which increased his MMA record to 5-0, with all wins coming by KO/TKO, he was a potential talent when he joined the UFC.

The 27-year-old went on to defeat Justin Ledet by unanimous decision in his UFC debut, but he has since suffered back-to-back defeats.


UFC Fight Night will feature Dustin Jacoby vs Kennedy Nzechukwu On August 5

A light heavyweight battle between Dustin Jacoby and Kennedy Nzechukwu appears to be planned for the August 5 UFC Fight Night event in addition to the contest between Tanner Boser and Aleksa Camur.

Nzechukwu has a fantastic chance to advance in the light heavyweight division against the former champion of the Glory Kickboxing competition. He presently has a strong three-fight winning streak, which includes two TKO victories and one technical submission victory.

Jacoby, on the other hand, is in desperate need of a victory as he is currently on a two-fight losing streak that includes defeats to Khalil Rountree Jr. by split decision and Azamat Murzakanov by unanimous decision.
