The heavyweight contenders are booked to fight on April 11th at UFC Portland, which will be hosted by the city’s Moda Center. The two were supposed to fight in Washington D.C. on December 7th, but after the stepdaughter of Harris went missing leading up to the bout, the heavyweight withdrew. His stepdaughter, Aniah Blanchard, was eventually found murdered.

Harris (13-7) will be fighting for the first time since July, when he quickly took out Aleksei Oleinik in just 12 seconds. That bout followed the heavyweight’s stoppage win over Sergey Spivak in May, which took Harris only 50 seconds.

Overeem (45-18) ended up fighting Jairzinho Rozenstruik in December, and appeared to be headed to a win, until the kickboxer scored a late, stoppage win. Before that, in April, 2019, Overeem also finished the aforementioned Oleinik in the opening round.
