Alistair Overeem looks to get back into the win column by turning away fellow heavyweight power puncher Walt Harris in the UFC on ESPN 8 main event later tonight (Sat., May 16, 2020) inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
Overeem (45-18, 1 NC), who turned 40 earlier this month, recently had his face reconstructed by Jairzinho Rozenstruik and now has a staggering 14 losses by way of knockout/technical knockout, the kind of statistic that can easily mitigate any stock in offensive prowess.
As for Harris (13-7, 1 NC), his biggest challenge heading into Jacksonville 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.
