Alistair Overeem — Walt Harris. Forecast and the announcement to fight

Sunday night/early morning Central time the UFC will hold the third tournament without spectators during the week on “VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena” (Jacksonville, Florida, USA). Probably, after the UFC Fight Night 172 subsequent events the promotion will move to Las Vegas in their own arena “UFC APEX”.

In the main event of UFC Fight Night 171 will be a battle of two heavyweights top 10 ranking Overeem and Harris, which originally was supposed to fight in December of last year.

But Harris was kidnapped, and then killed his stepdaughter, which forced him to interrupt his training for the bout, and the UFC on ESPN 7 Overeem had a fight against Jairzinho Rozenstruik. “Rome,” then suffered a humiliating defeat by knockout in 4 seconds before the end of the fifth round, leading on points. Overeem thereby confirmed the reputation of “glass” chin – 14-e defeat by a knockout from 18. And before that, Overeem was a series of two wins by knockout in the first round over Russian Sergey Pavlovich and Alexey Oleinik.

Harris are unbeaten in 2017, but it is not the best way proved himself at a high level. Harris in 2018-2019 finished beats Daniel Spitz, Sergey Spivak and Oleinik, and last for some 12 seconds. Also during this time Walt split decision defeated the ex-champion of UFC Andrey Orlovsky, but the failed doping test of the American led to the official result of the bout “no contest”.

Forecast for battle

After a series of losses by Ko in 2014, Overeem changed his style, becoming more methodical, economical and careful fighter with a tendency to catch the opponent’s punch and then “sit on bike”. Overeem has the more rounded fighter who is equally good with distance and in the clinch. As a drummer he is more skilful than his counterpart. And most importantly, he’s a great wrestler and Grappler able to knock down the enemy and beat him there with a punch or finish submisson.

Harris is also very weak in grappling, the ground with Fabricio Verdum in 2017, he looked completely lost, giving up just a minute. Harris aimed only at the knockout, mostly quick, all 13 of the victories he had won at the expense of finish blows. If he does not catch Overeem with a punch early in the fight, the Dutchman must close loss due to your skill.
