The UFC tripleheader from Jacksonville, Florida, has posted two main events so far that have brought extreme brutality. And the main finale saved for ESPN prime time on Saturday night — featuring two highly ranked, hard-hitting heavyweights — also should end with a bang. I just don’t expect this week’s fighters to withstand nearly as many punches as we’ve seen in the past two main events.
Prelims from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena begin at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+, and the main card begins at 9 p.m.

Heavyweight main event: No. 8 Walt Harris (-155) vs. No. 9 Alistair Overeem (+135)
