Orlando Sentinel - - Weather - By Iliana Limón Romero

UFC is clos­ing out its week of bouts in Jack­sonville on Sat­ur­day night.

The third night of fights will be head­lined by show­down of vet­eran heavy­weights Alis­tair Overeem and Walt Har­ris, who are both com­ing off losses and push­ing for break­through vic­to­ries.

It will be Har­ris’ first fight since his step­daugh­ter dis­ap­peared and was found dead a month later.

Pre­lims start at 6 p.m. and the main card starts at 9 p.m. The fights are slated to air on both ESPN and ESPN+.

The bouts will once again be held with­out fans in at­ten­dance at VyS­tar Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial Arena.

UFC has con­tin­ued to em­pha­size clean­ing, so­cial dis­tanc­ing, tem­per­a­ture checks and other pre­cau­tions to try to main­tain safety amid the coroan­virus pan­demic.

UFC hopes to be­gin hold­ing fight cards back home in Las Ve­gas later this month, but it is wait­ing for clear­ance from the Ne­vada Ath­letic Com­mis­sion.
