Alistair Overeem is the betting underdog against fellow heavyweight smashing machine, Walt Harris, ahead of their UFC Fight Night 172 main event, which takes place on Sat., April 11, 2020 on ESPN+ from inside Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

Probably because “Demolition Man,” who recently had his face reconstructed by Jairzinho Rozenstruik, has a staggering 14 losses by way of knockout/technical knockout, which is the kind of statistic that can easily mitigate any stock in offensive prowess.

The hot-and-cold Overeem (45-18, 1 NC) turns 40 in May.

As for Harris (13-7, 1 NC), his biggest challenge heading into Portland will be overcoming the grief of his recent family tragedy, which interrupted a four-fight winning streak. His victory over Andrei Arlovski, however, was overturned after “The Big Ticket” tested positive for contaminated supplements.

Harris, 36, opened as the -210 favorite, but that number has come down now that money is starting to trickle in for Overeem.
