Dana White, MMA community mourn Walt Harris’ stepdaughter Aniah Blanchard

The fears of many came true Wednesday when Aniah Blanchard, the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, was confirmed dead after a weeks-long search following her kidnapping last month in Alabama.

From the moment Blanchard’s disappearance was made public, the MMA community rallied around Harris and the Blanchard family, offering financial assistance and more in hopes that she would be found. That eventually happened, but not under the circumstances anyone hoped for.

After news of her death broke, many within the sport’s circle offered support on social media. We at MMA Junkie would like to extend our deepest condolences to Harris and his family. May Aniah rest in peace and justice be served.
