Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris is the headline event on Fight Night and both men are sure to be raring to go after having their original fight date postponed in April.

There are plenty of other exciting bouts on the card as Claudia Gadelha takes on Angela Hill in the women’s Strawweight division and Dan Ige faces off against Edson Barboza at Featherweight.

Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris where the fight will be won

There is plenty on the line here in Jacksonville.

Alistair Overeem is one of the most skilled practitioners in the Heavyweight division, but at the age of 39, his best days look behind him.

He is currently ranked #8 in the UFC Heavyweight rankings and comes into this fight off the back of a tough loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik last December.
Of his 45 career wins, 23 have come by knockout and his Sergei Pavlovich and Alexey Oleynik in 2018 and 2019, were proof that he still possesses plenty of striking power.

This fight could make or break for his career however as a loss here would see him in danger of slipping out of the top 10 in the rankings.

Walt Harris will be looking to put his personal turmoil outside of the ring behind him as he steps into the cage on Fight Night.

He has not fought since his incredible 12 second knockout of Aleksei Oleinik in July 2019 and he looks set to continue his assault on the Heavyweight division.

Harris sits at #9 in the Heavyweight rankings and he will see Overeem as a stepping stone he has to overcome to climb the ladder.

This should be an explosive encounter with Harris sure to be chasing the early finish, having won 13 of his 21 victories by knockout.

Overeem meanwhile, has an accomplished kickboxing background and he will be looking to mix up his skill set and avoid getting caught by the dangerous American.

Neither man is backward in coming forward and with plenty of pre-fight narratives in the air too, it could be an absolute classic.

Dan Ige vs Edson Barboza

Two men at differing ends of their UFC career face off in Jacksonville as Dan Ige takes on Edson Barboza.

Brazilian Edson Barboza has mixed it with all the big boys in the Lightweight division, including Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Justin Gaethje but he has always come up just short.

He comes into this fight having lost 4 of his last 5 bouts but he is one of the most skilled fighters in the division and sits #11 in the Lightweight standings.

Dan Ige will see this as a huge opportunity to progress in the world of UFC.

The Hawaiian has won 13 of his 15 bouts and looks set to challenge the elite in the Featherweight division.

Both men are skilled practitioners and this fight could go the distance with Ige likely to come out on top.

Krzysztof Jotko vs Eryk Anders

A classic Middleweight bout looks on the cards in Florida as Krzysztof Jotko takes on Eryk Anders.

Both men are sat outside the top 15 in the Middleweight ranks currently, with Jotko at #18 and Anders at #20, they will see this as a huge opportunity to showcase their talents.

Krzysztof Jotko comes into this fight off the back of back to back points wins over Alen Amedovski and Marc-André Barriault and he will fancy his chances here.

Whilst for the dangerous Anders, he will be hoping to build on his win over Gerald Meerschaert as he steps up his return into the Middleweight Division.

This should be a fiercely contested encounter, between two well-matched fighters and it could go the distance.
