The fight card took place live from the GelreDome in Arnhem, Netherlands.

Overeem and Hari had first met back in 2008, where ‘The Reem‘ was able to KO Hari inside of one round. The pair would rematch the following year (2009) with Badr exacting his revenge, earning a first round KO over Alistair in the K-1 World Grand Prix Semi-Finals.

Tonight’s ‘Overeem vs. Hari’ trilogy fight was decided by an incredible third round from ‘The Reem’. After arguably dropping the first two rounds, Alistair Overeem was able to score two knockdowns over Badr Hari in the third and final frame (see those here). Although Bari survived to see the final horn, Overeem’s dominant third round clearly left a lasting impression in the eyes of the judges, as he was awarded the unanimous decision victory.
