ALISTAIR OVEREEM overcame Walt Harris in the third of UFC’s huge main events this week.
But it could have been very different as the American pounced on the Dutchman early in the first and very nearly scored a KO with a flurry of punches.
However Overeem dominated from then onwards and wrapped up the win as he pinned Harris to the ground for most of the second round before scoring a TKO.
Elsewhere, Chito Vera refused to shake hands with Song Yadong, shouting “f*** that” after a controversial unanimous decision defeat.
And Krzysztof Jotko, Dan Ige and Claudia Gadelha all ran out winners via the judges.
