The card will be headlined by a heavyweight showdown between former DREAM, Strikeforce and K-1 heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, and Walt Harris, who returns to the cage after the tragic death of his daughter, Aniah Blanchard.

The UFC on ESPN 8 co-main event will occur in the strawweight division, where former title challenger Claudia Gadelha will take on Angela Hill, who seems to fight once a week lately.

Other highlights of the card include the featherweight debut of long-time lightweight contender Edson Barboza, who takes on Dan Ige, and a short-notice featherweight fight between bantamweight contenders Marlon Vera and Song Yadong.

On Friday morning, the fighters on the UFC on ESPN 8 bill stepped onto the scales to weigh-in for battle.
