Name: Sam Alvey
Opponent: Klidson Abreu
Odds: +144 (bet $100 to win $144)
Nine years – that’s how long it’s been since Sam Alvey was submitted. Future UFC veteran Gerald Meerschaert locked up a guillotine with just 52 seconds left of an exhausting five-round title fight on the regional circuit. 46 professional fights and that’s his only submission loss.
So excuse me for not shaking in my shoes when I see a submission ace with his last five wins coming via either armbar or rear naked choke. Alvey’s submission defense is one point and he has a way of getting people to throw hands with him. If Klidson Abreu does just that, even for a few moments, I love the heavy handed Alvey in this fight to pull the upset and the underdog money.
