Was Alvey ever ranked in UFC’s top 10?
Sam Alvey had an illustrious UFC career and it is needless to say that he is a veteran in this sport. After making his debut in the UFC in 2014, Smile’n amassed a record of 10-13. The middleweight contender’s life in the UFC was very difficult as he suffered a unanimous decision loss in his debut bout.
However, he bounced back and racked up seven wins in his next nine fights. Despite improving his record, Alvey was unable to make it to the top 15 of the middleweight division. However, Sam Alvey’s move up to the light heavyweight division in 2017 helped him rise through the ranks and become #15 in the weight class.
But that was the highest-ever rank Alvey achieved in the UFC. The 36-year-old fighter could not progress any further as he failed to register a single win in his next nine fights.
