UFC On ESPN Results: Alistair Overeem Tops Emotional Walt Harris
Welcome to our live coverage of UFC on ESPN 9 with a headline bout between heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris on ESPN.
Welcome to our live coverage of Saturday night’s UFC on ESPN: Overeen vs. Harris event from Jacksonville, Florida and the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
The arena has become the home-away-from-home for the UFC this past week, hosting three events in eight days.
In the main event will be a heavyweight battle between former title contender Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.
Overeem is coming off a fifth round knockout loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik, but had won four of six prior to that highlighted by a majority decision win over former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.
For Harris, this is his first fight since losing his step-daughter last year. The situation scrapped plans for a bout with Overeem, but now, he is re-focused on the task at hand.
He is also unbeaten over his last four, including finishes of Aleksei Oleinik, Sergey Spivak and Daniel Spitz.
