Sam Alvey is enduring an absolutely massive weight cut ahead of UFC Gdansk

Tom Taylor - October 19, 2017

Weight-cutting is an extremely controversial topic in combat sports. After “The Motown Phenom” Kevin Lee endured a massive, 21-pound cut ahead of his recent UFC 216 showdown with Tony Ferguson, this topic became more controversial than ever. Now, that trend should continue, as UFC middleweight Sam Alvey is enduring an absolutely gargantuan cut ahead of his Saturday UFC Gdansk showdown with Ramazan Emeev.  Alvey accepted this Gdansk scrap with Emeev on short notice, when Emeev’s original opponent Trevor Smith withdrew from the fight. During a recent media scrum in Gdansk, Alvey admitted that when he accepted this short notice fight, he was “north of 220” pounds. He’ll now have to find a way to get down to the middleweight limit’s 186-pound limit in time for tomorrow’s weigh-ins.
