Alistair Overeem is set to make his return to kickboxing against Badr Hari.

As per, Overeem will face Hari at GLORY Collision 4 which takes place in October. An announcement has not been made by GLORY Kickboxing, but should be expected soon.

It will notably be the trilogy fight between the pair of legends. Overeem first faced Hari back in 2008 when he knocked the latter out in the first round.

Hari would get his revenge a year later by TKOing Overeem at the K-1 Grand Prix.

The contest will be Overeem’s first since getting released by the UFC last year.

“The Demolition Man” was originally set to face GLORY heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven in October last year. However, an injury to Overeem forced him to pull out.

However, a fight with Hari is still an intriguing consolation prize for fans. That’s even if both fighters are well past their primes with Hari notably winless since 2015 with four losses and two no contests in his last six outings.

Overeem, meanwhile, last competed in February last year when he was TKO’d by Alexander Volkov. However, a win over Hari would put him in pole position to challenge Verhoeven next.

Until then, Overeem will venture into the professional wrestling world.
