Jacksonville run ending on Saturday
Third night of fights will feature 5-bout main card
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.
