The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion has been a perennial contender throughout his UFC career and now he’ll look to build momentum with a fight against another powerful knockout artist in December.
Harris has been an athlete his entire life first with a career in basketball before then transitioning to mixed martial arts. Over his past four fights, Harris has gone 3-0 with one no-contest with all three of his wins coming by knockout or TKO.
Now Harris will take a step up in competition while facing Overeem at the upcoming UFC Fight Night card from Washington D.C.
The card will air on ESPN in the United States.
