The MMA battles are back.  Next up - the Heavyweights. The third of the UFC's three events in one week is scheduled to take place this Saturday.

The event will be headlined by an intriguing Heavyweight tilt between Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.

The two men were originally slated to meet prior to the Coronavirus outbreak, though Harris suffered a personal tragedy and was forced to withdraw.

For Alistair Overeem, the former title contender is trying to put together some wins to take one final run at a title shot, which has eluded him so far in the UFC.


Let's take a look at the odds for this fight, courtesy of Bet365:

Overeem was on the cusp of securing a third straight victory in his last fight against Jairzinho Rozenstruik before his opponent scored a shocking knockout right near the end of the fight.

Prior to that, Overeem had beaten Alexey Oleynik and Sergei Pavlovich in consecutive fights.

Walt Harris, on the other hand, is in the midst of a two fight win streak that includes victories over Aleksei Oleinik and Sergey Spivak.

Both Harris and Overeem have extreme power in their hands, so this might be a short fight.
