We last saw Smiling Sam Alvey when he fought Nate Marquardt, on the UFC on Fox: Shevchenko vs Pena card. Sam came away with the win, putting him at 4 in a row and tying a UFC record.

The record Sam is set to break, is for most fights within a one year time frame. He currently has five, he is tied with Roger Huerta, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, and fellow welterweight Neil Magny.

Tomorrow on the UFC Fight Night: Swanson VS Lobov card, Sam will go head to head against Thales Leites. This will be his sixth UFC fight within a one year time frame, earning him the UFC record.

It really is a significant record and a sign of how durable Sam is. We see so many fighters plagued with injuries and unable to fight. Some fighters are lucky to be able to fight 6 times in 3 years.

After Sam fights Thales Leites, he will still have 2 months before his one year window is up, meaning he could actually go for a 7th fight. That would really set the bar and make it one of the hardest records in the UFC to break.
