Tragic news has gripped the MMA world after the law enforcement agencies confirmed that the body of Aniah Blanchard, daughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris was found in the woods.
The body was located off Highway 80 in Shorter, Alabama by local law enforcement agencies. Aniah was last heard from on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, when she talked to her friend around midnight. She was last seen on the same night driving a black 2017 Honda CR-V and the car was found by law enforcement agencies near an apartment complex in the city of Montgomery.
Walt Harris took to Social Media to pen down an emotional tribute in memory of Aniah and also expressed his grief in the post, calling her his biggest fan.
“My sweet baby girl… I just wanna thank you for helping me change my life for the better… For teaching me how to be a man and a better father! For being my biggest fan win, lose , or draw! For always knowing what to say to put a smile on my face and lift me up when I was down and wanted to give up. You light up my world I’m so many ways. This pain is unbearable… I know you want me to be strong but it so hard baby it so hard. I’m gonna find away I promise you I will. Right now nothing makes sense and I’m so lost. I just want you back. I hope I made you proud… I’m gonna keep going daddy just needs time. I love you so much. Look after us like you always did. We need you now more than ever. My lil mighty mighty tiger is a angel now. I love you baby girl forever and ever!” – Walt Harris said.
