UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Harris (also known as UFC Fight Night 172 and UFC on ESPN+ 30) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on April 11, 2020 at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.
A heavyweight bout between the former 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion and UFC Heavyweight Championship challenger Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris has been slated to serve as the event headliner. The pairing was previously scheduled to headline UFC on ESPN 7 in December 2019. However Harris pulled out of the fight in early November citing the disappearance and death of his step-daughter in her home state of Alabama.
A middleweight bout between Derek Brunson and Edmen Shahbazyan was scheduled at UFC 248. However it was announced on February 20 that the bout has been rescheduled and will serve as the co-main for this event.
