Alistair Overeem shows great sportsmanship after beating Walt Harris

Alistair Overeem

Alistair Overeem showed some great sportsmanship after beating Walt Harris via second-round TKO at UFC Fight Night in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday.

Overeem dropped Harris to the mat with a huge kick and started to pound on him with little resistance. After Overeem delivered several punches to Harris’ head over the course of a minute, referee Dan Miragliotta decided to stop the fight.

Rather than celebrate, Overeem dropped down and put his arm around his opponent. He even could be heard saying “let’s train together,” while giving Harris a hand.

Overeem is now 46-18 with one no contest, while Harris is 13-8 with one no contest.

There may have been more to the compassion shown by Overeem. Harris’ late stepdaughter was reported missing in October, and her remains were found a month later. Overeem is a father of two girls and may have felt more for Harris than the average person.
