You can live stream this UFC Fight Night, featuring two top Heavyweight fighters, and fill your Saturday night with sports action by watching Overeem vs. Harris in UFC Fight Night, available on both ESPN and ESPN Plus (ESPN+).
When is UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Harris?
UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Harris is broadcasting from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL on Wednesday, May 16. This Fight Night is available on both ESPN and ESPN+, with the Prelims starting at 6 p.m. Eastern time and the Main Card begins at 9 p.m. Eastern.
UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Harris — The Main Event Preview
Alistair "The Demolition Man" Overeem (48-18) is the eighth ranked heavyweight contender, and he wants to avenge a tough loss to heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. First, he needs to get back into a position to challenge the champ, who knocked Overeem out in 2016. Overeem is a Muay Thai fighter who's fights rarely go to the judges, because 40 of his 45 victories and 15 of his 18 defeats have ended before the final bell.
Originally Overeem and Harris were supposed to clash in a big match last December in Washington D.C. However the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Harris' stepdaughter Aniah Blanchard led him to withdraw from the fight. Instead Overeem fought Jaizinho Rozenstruik, and was knocked out in a wild upset with four seconds left in the last round.
Walt Harris (13-7) is the ninth ranked heavyweight fighter, and he's trying to pick up a promising career which has been on hold since the tragedy that struck his family. Harris last fought almost one year ago, in July of 2019. He's riding a three fight win streak with an additional no contest in a fight he won before testing positive for a banned substance. This will probably be the biggest fight of Harris' UFC career, overtaking his stepping into a last minute substitute fight against Fabricio Werdum. He lost that fight quickly, in just over a minute, but Harris clearly hopes to get his life back on track with a win to help him rise up the heavyweight ranks.
