Round 1: Dan Miragliotta is the third man in the cage for the main event. The two heavyweights have a bit of a feeling out process to start with Harris in the center of the cage. Harris cracks Overeem with a right hand and Overeem is in dire straits!! Harris is standing over Overeem and raining shots and Harris is taking a close look. Overeem is able to survive but his down again and Harris trying to finish this! Overeem trips Harris and gets back to his feet but he’s busted open andn still hurt. Harris charges forward but slips and now Overeem gets him down and Overeem is on top! What a reversal of fortune! Overeem is now tying Harris up and laying into Harris with shots. Harris is now breathing HEAVY with Overeem draped on him and raining left hands while tying up Harris’ hands. Harris is against the fence and trying to stand but Overeem lands a monster knee to the body! and another as Harris stands at the horn. Honestly, no clue how to actually score that.

Round 2: Overeem still looking a little wild-eyed to start the second but Harris looks noticeably slower. Output is definitely slowed now.
