Highlights! B2’s Sam Alvey snaps nine-fight winless streak, declared future UFC Hall of Famer

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran, Sam Alvey, is finally back in the winner's circle.

“Smile’n” competed in his first fight since being cut from UFC tonight (Sat., May 27, 2023), finishing Cameron Graham in the third round at B2 Fighting Series 183 from inside Columbus Convention & Trade Center in Columbus, Georgia. The fight took place at Heavyweight.

It was one-way traffic from "Smile'n" as he smothered his opponent for three rounds with ground-and-pound after landing several takedowns. The referee eventually stopped the fight with 43 seconds left in the third round, with Alvey winning via technical knockout.

Watch the finish below:

Prior to B2 Fighting Series 183, Alvey had not won a fight since UFC Fight Night 131 way back in 2018 when he defeated Gian Villante via split decision. After that, Alvey rattled off an unprecedented nine-fight winless streak (a UFC record).

The 37-year-old was eventually released from UFC after his eighth loss when he was knocked out by Michal Oleksiejczuk (watch highlights). Alvey competed for UFC a total of 24 times and ended with a 10-13-1 record.

As for what's next, Alvey said he wants to fight in bareknuckle boxing, but unfortunately, he hasn't seen a good enough offer from any promotions. He did call out Jake Paul (again) after his win, but we all know that isn't going to happen.
