Mark Godbeer will get his wish, as the heavyweight will meet Walt Harris at UFC 217.

Set for November 4 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, the bout was added to the prelims for the night.

Godbeer was scheduled to face Harris at UFC 216, but after Derrick Lewis was removed from a fight with Fabricio Werdum, officials inserted Harris. That left Godbeer without an opponent.

Tony Ferguson positioned himself for a bout with Conor McGregor Saturday night, and Demetrious Johnson made history, as UFC 216 went down inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Prior to the start of the pay-per-view main card, the UFC honored the victims and survivors of the recent terrorist attack that hit the city. Over 1,500 police, firefighters and EMTs were expected to be in attendance.

Ferguson finished off the night with a third round submission vs. Kevin Lee, winning the interim lightweight title. The former Ultimate Fighter winner is expected to unify the belts with McGregor.

In the co-main event, Johnson set a new UFC record for consecutive title defenses with a fifth round submission of Ray Borg. In a bout he completely controlled, Johnson ended it with an armbar to record his 11th successful defense of the flyweight belt.

Fabricio Werdum had no trouble with a change in opponents, submitting Walt Harris with a first round armbar. Derrick Lewis was forced out of the fight earlier in the day after a back injury flared up and Harris agreed to move from his fight with Mark Godbeer to meet the former champion.

Mara Romero Borella submitted Kalindra Faria and Beneil Dariush fought Evan Dunham to a majority draw to begin the main card.

Wanderlei Silva’s return to MMA did not go as he had hoped, as “The Axe Murderer” suffered a loss to Chael Sonnen.

Knowing that at 41 years old, his days are numbered in the sport, Belfort is looking to go out with a bang.

“There are several that could be (my next opponent). A Quinton Jackson, a Dan Henderson, a Vitor Belfort. There are several who could be a good opponent and make a good fight,” Silva told Portal do Vale Tudo recently. “But I wanted to get a guy standing, who would agree to get out in hand. He wanted to test me. I wanted to knockdown, get knockdown, and it did not happen in my last fight. He just wanted to know how to hold on. I wanted to get a changer, and I’m sure that would be a show.”

Throughout his career, the Brazilian has faced off against a list of who’s who in MMA. His last win, though, came in 2013 when he defeated Brian Stann.

“I want to make great presentations, with name faces, at big events so that we can get the attention of the people,” he said. “In my last fight I achieved that goal, which was to get as many people as possible, and beat the record with the highest audience in Bellator’s history. And that made me very happy. Many people who did not talk about fighting, the next day were talking about my fight and I was very happy. This is my focus.”

Patricky “Pitbull” Freire scored the biggest win of his career Saturday night, defeating former UFC champion Benson Henderson in the main event of Bellator 183.

With the win, Freire claimed another key win in his pursuit of lightweight champion Brent Primus. Earlier this year, the Brazilian finished Josh Thomson.

In the co-main, Paul Daley knocked out Lorenz Larkin in the second round.

Roy Nelson made his debut with Bellator, besting Javy Ayala, and acclaimed prospect Aaron Pico picked up his first win with a finish of Justin Linn.
