At UFC 232 back in December 2018 Walt Harris won the biggest fight of his career against ex-champion Andrei Arlovski. But unfortunately, Harris was tested positive and was suspended for four months.  After that, he came back and defeated Sergey Spivak by TKO back in May and won Performance of the Night.
