Sam Alvey out with broken jaw

Sam 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.

Alvey, looking to rebound off his first-round TKO loss to Derek Brunson in August, will now have to wait for his chance to get back into the win column due to a broken jaw suffered in training. While clearly upset about missing the chance to compete, Sam trying to stay in good spirits, told MMA Latest,

“I took a big ol’ foot to the face.”

Alvey is 3-1 in his last four UFC outings, all three wins coming by way of first-round knockouts. Dylan Andrews, Cezar Ferreira, and Daniel Kelly all fell victim to the one-punch knockout power of “Smile’n” Sam. Unknown to most, Sam competed against Daniel Kelly with a torn LCL, but did not pull out of that matchup. Sam is fan favorite because of his trademark smile, victory celebration, walkout music, “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train, and his ability to end a fight at any moment.

Alvey is facing a minimum of six-weeks for the healing process for his broken jaw that is now wired shut. While the exact timetable for a return is unknown, fellow UFC fighter John Makdessi suffered a broken jaw in his fight against Donald Cerrone in May, and returned to the Octagon in December, just under seven months later.

We requested pictures from Sam, but he instead offered this video: 

 

Daniel Sarafian, who has not competed since December of 2014 in a win over Antonio dos Santos Jr., is now in need of a replacement opponent for Alvey.

UFC Fight Night 82 takes place on February 21, 2016 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is headlined by a middleweight matchup between Derek Brunson and Roan Carneiro.

At this time, the remainder of the fight card is as follows:

  • Cody Garbrandt vs. John Lineker
  • Brandon Thatch vs. Siyar Bahadurzada
  • Joe Riggs vs. Chris Camozzi
  • Trevor Smith vs. Leonardo Guimaraes
  • James Krause vs. Shane Campbell
  • Sarah Moras vs. Lauren Murphy
  • Anthony Hamilton vs. Shamil Abdurakhimov
  • Sean Strickland vs. Alex Garcia
