Every UFC competitor needs courage, but heavyweight Walt Harris has a different kind of strength. This Saturday night, Harris faces Alistair Overeem in UFC Fight Night on ESPN: Overeem vs. Harris, the heavyweight’s first fight since the tragic murder of his stepdaughter, Aniah Blanchard last fall.
Tom Rinaldi shares the story of Walt’s determination to fight on SC Featured in the noon ET edition of SportsCenter. The 14-minute “Fighting for Aniah” is Harris’ first extensive on-camera interview since the murder.
“For all the interviews that I have done that have centered on great challenge and great loss, Walt’s was among the most moving in my career,” Rinaldi said.
Since its 2013 beginning, SC Featured has brought unique and compelling feature stories to SportsCenter, ESPN’s flagship news and information program.
Watch UFC Fight Night on ESPN: Overeem vs. Harris this Saturday at 6 p.m. on ESPN and ESPN Deportes.
