Following the disappearance of his step-daughter, Walt Harris has withdrawn from his upcoming UFC on ESPN 7 main event bout against Alistair Overeem per MMAJunkie.

Harris (13-7, 1 NC) revealed his 19-year-old stepdaughter, Aniah Blanchard, had disappeared last week and has since seen more than $100,000 donated toward the efforts to find Blanchard, including a public plea for any information by UFC president Dana White.

On Thursday, police indicated that Blanchard was a victim of “foul play” after finding her car damaged around 55 miles away from her college.

With the troubling situation taking Harris’ priority, a search for a replacement opponent for Overeem is reportedly underway for the December 7th card in Washington, D.C.
