MMA Fighting reported Monday afternoon that Alvey will face Ian Heinisch at UFC Fight Night which is scheduled for February 7.
Alvey, 35, is coming off a slump in his last seven appearances with the organization by losing a split decision to the Brazilian. Wellington Turman. With that loss he equaled BJ Penn’s record for most fights in a row without winning..
Heinisch, likewise, arrives on the billboard in a very negative present. The former interim 185-pound champion of the LFA is 1-4 in his last five appearances over the Octagon and is coming off being knocked out by Nassourdine Imamov on July 24. The 33-year-old middleweight’s losing streak is also comprised of losses to fighters like Kelvin Gastelum and Derek Brunson.
