UFC Fight Night 65: Third Straight Finish For Sam Alvey

ufc fight night 65

There just might not be another fighter in the world like Sam Alvey.

He is pure entertainment before and after his fights, but he can also compete.

Alvey scored a 49-second knockout of Daniel Kelly, handing the four-time Olympian his first career loss Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 65.

“Daniel Kelly is a hero,” Alvey said. “I’ve never fought an Olympian and he seemed like a champion-type; that’s who I want to fight. And I want to fight my friends so I can make them money.”

A heavy betting favorite, Alvey (26-6) showed why, landing several right hooks. He floored Kelly with one of those shots before connecting with several more and ending the unbeaten run for the Australian.

“We watched a ton of footage and saw an opening,” he said. “His judo is better than mine and I was blessed to land something before he threw me on my head.”

With his third straight first round finish, “Smilin” made sure to call-out his next opponent, asking for a hair vs. hair match with Elias Theodorou.

“I want you, I’m gonna knock you out,” he said. “You’ve been bragging about having the best hair in MMA. If I lose, I’ll shave my head. You lose, you shave your head.”
