    Result: Loss

    Overeem is half the fighter he used to be. After winning titles in multiple organizations, then PED suspension he's lacked in many areas. The biggest concern I see with Overeem is repeatedly turtling up with both hands covering his face and back to the cage. It's a spot many fighters have capitalized when he leaves openings to be hit. Even when pressured up against the cage, he runs off awkwardly leaving his head up. No doubt he has the striking to stand with anyone, but it feels as if thats a thing of the past. Even though he was beating Jairzinho Rozenstruik, at no time did he push the pace with Overeem, well, besides for the last 5 seconds when he landed the bomb that ended the fight. 

    Walt Harris is a big tough fighter with power and boxing. He's found success in areas in which Overeem can be exposed. How he strings punches together pushing forward keeps Overeem moving backwards, and off his back foot he's not even anywhere near as dangerous. 

    At the current price, I like the line.
