Sam Alvey is legitimately one of the worst fighters currently employed by the UFC. And that's saying something considering 65% of the roster is regional-level talent that probably wouldn't headline an LFA show. He sucks so bad. The fact he is still employed by the UFC and - according to Dana - will get ANOTHER shot is insane. They've let so much talent go, and yet they keep Sam Alvey. Obviously it's because he's a corporate boot-licker who actively speaks out against fighters forming unions. So Dana and the UFC love him, but still. Ridiculous.
