Vitor Belfort was most recently seen in action at June’s UFC 212 pay-per-view event in Brazil where he scored a unanimous decision victory over former Strikeforce title holder Nate Marquardt.
The former UFC light heavyweight champion, Belfort, has gone 2-2 with 1 no-contest over his past five fights suffering TKO losses to Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in that time.
Meanwhile, “Smiling” Sam has now won five of his last six contests. Alvey’s lone setback during that time came to former middleweight title challenger Thales Leites via decision.
