Sam Alvey is known for having that big glowing smile upon his mug in most any setting, yet it appears his days of smiling are over, or at least limited.
It was reported through the MMA Latest website that Alvey,(26-7, 3-2 UFC) is out of his fight against Daniel Sarafian (9-5, 2-3 UFC) scheduled to take place on February 21, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 82, due to a broken jaw.
Alves told MMA Latest:
“I took a big ol’ foot to the face.”

- Derek Brunson vs. Roan Carneiro
