Overeem Prevails Over Harris

Jonathan Grant | May 17th, 2020

After the first round of Saturday night’s main event heavyweight showdown, it only looked like one man could be leaving with his hand raised. Walt Harris had produced a brilliant combination, a furious onslaught that opened up Alistair Overeem. The blood came pouring from his nose and near his eye, yet when the dust had settled a round later, it was Overeem that had won after he went on the attack in the second.

Overeem was relentless after landing a kick, and he stayed on Harris to record a victory after which he asked Harris to train along with him as he consoled him. The fight, coming on a card that featured UFC for the third time in about a week, had been planned to go on in December, but it didn’t due to the death of Harris’ daughter, Aniah Blanchard. Overeem is rated somewhere close to the top ten in contention for the heavyweight title, so this was going to be Harris’ shot to get into the mix. Fortunately, there is still time for him, of course, and we’ve seen guys turn their careers around quickly in the past. As for other UFC news, Dana White announced that if the card for the end of the month scheduled for Vegas was unable to go ahead, it would move to Arizona. So there is that bit of news to go on, too!
