Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris Where And When?

After a delay in the fight calendar which saw no UFC cards throughout April, there will have been three events in the space of just eight days in May once Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris have met in Florida.

UFC 249 marked the return Dana White’s organisation and the president of the company intends to keep them coming despite the ongoing global pandemic.

It’s the Dutch “Demolition Man’ that is regarded as the 13/10 outsider with bet365 in the Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris betting.

That’s the next card to take place with this tasty heavyweight showdown between big punchers headlining at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena on May 16th.

It’s at the same Florida venue as the recent two returning cards that these two giants will throw down and fireworks can be expected.

It could well prove to be a short main event if both men come out swinging in front of an empty crowd, with this event being fought out behind closed doors as well.

Overeem vs Harris Best Bets & Odds

Following on from the high-profile return with UFC 249 then the clash between Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira, this represents another coup for Dana White and his mission to get proceedings back on track.


Despite the restrictions in place and lack of crowd to witness the action, there should be no shortage of excitement and UK and Irish fans can tune in to catch every second from BT Sport.

It may come as somewhat of a surprise to see Harris enter the octagon as the odds-on 20/31 favourite to prevail here with an impressive victory over the veteran Overeem.

Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris Records & History

Overeem and Harris will be primed and ready to lock horns for the third show since the recent UFC blackout, which had run from March 14th due to the threat of the coronavirus across America.

The pair of heavyweight hitters were originally scheduled to collide back in April 11th in the Portland, Oregon show but the event was obviously canceled due to the health scare.

Dutchman Overeem will be aiming to bounce back from a loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik last December, when he was stopped in the fight round of a clash he was seemingly winning until that point.

Harris had actually been the initially scheduled foe for Overeem back then but was forced out due to family issues.

The American holds 13 wins from 21 career MMA bouts and is currently on a two-fight win streak after his last victory coming against Aleksei Oleinik last July.

Meanwhile, Overeem is hoping to get back on track with what would be a shock triumph and he is available at 5/4 from Betfair to do exactly with success here.

Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris Preview & Betting tips

Despite being 36 years of age, Harris is seen as a prospect in the heavyweight division and has showcased an admirable run of form of late.

The Birmingham, Alabama-native boasts three stoppage victories from his last four UFC career wins.

This includes back-to-back first-round KO wins via strikes, proving he’s a dangerous threat straight out of the blocks.

With Overeem having been stopped late in his last performance, the signs point towards a fifth successive triumph for the rampantly rising Harris.

Therefore, the best-priced 13/20 from 888Sport on another Harris looks well worth considering.

Although, runs have to come to an end at some stage and fans can back the experienced Overeem to have his hand raised at a hugely promising 7/5 with Vbet.
