Sam Alvey Broke UFC Policy By Tanning Sponsor Onto Body

May 10, 2015 4:43 am by Jonathan Kirschner


It’s not often you see a fighter walk into the octagon with a sponsor tanned onto his chest, but “Smile’n” Sam Alvey is not your average fighter.

Alvey walked into the octagon with “#PERFECTTAN” branded onto his chest and broke a UFC policy in the process. When asked about it, Managing Director for UFC Operations in Australia Tom Wright responded during the post-fight presser by saying it won’t happen again. “Fighter’s definitely can’t do that. It’s against our policy,” Wright said.

“You can put your sponsor on your shorts. You can put sponsors on your banner. You cannot put sponsors on your body. We didn’t see it until before the fight. We tried to do something to remove it, but it was unremovable. We’ve spoken to Sam and he understands the situation and it won’t happen again.”
