Sam Alvey is disappointed he did not get his hand raised but says he won’t stop fighting.
Alvey suffered a submission loss to Brendan Allen at UFC Vegas 47 which was his winless streak to eight fights. Now, after the loss, Alvey took to social media to discuss the loss and he admitted something needs to change and he will take a bit of a hiatus until he figures it out.
“I’m fresh off of my UFC fight and, as I’m sure a lot of you saw, I didn’t get it done,” Alvey said on his Instagram (via MMAFighting). “I’ve lost a step. Something needs to change and I’m gonna make the corrections. I’m not done fighting. I love this sport, and God has blessed me. I raise God’s name on high and I would not have the career I’ve had without him. I really have had a good career, I’ve had a long career, I’ve had… that was my 23rd fight in the UFC. I’ve had the career that people dream of.
“I’m not done fighting, but I know I need to take a little bit of a hiatus. My YouTube channel, I really want to push, I want to help coach you guys,” Alvey continued. “If you guys have questions, if you want to learn from me, if you want to teach me, follow me there. I’m gonna keep pushing, I want to help others win, and I want to win again, too.”
Sam Alvey is now 33-17-1 and one No Contest in his career and is 0-7-1 in his last eight fights. His last win came back in June of 2018 as he edged out Gian Villante by a split decision. During the losing streak, he has a few close fights as he has a draw against Da Un Jung and split decision losses to Ryan Spann and Wellington Turman.
