Former UFC middleweight Sam Alvey recently disclosed that the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) refused to pay him what he needed to go through a fight camp, instead directing him to an alternate Russian promotion.

Alvey spoke ahead of his scheduled match at the B2 Fighting Series: 183 on May 27 about his conversations with BKFC to fight in their organization and their refusal to pay him what he required.

He stated, "Everyone talks about bare-knuckle boxing... I said, "Hell yeah, I love boxing. I love all that. Let's freaking do it." And then they say, "Well, we're not going to pay you. We're not going to pay you much." I asked, "What will you pay me?

“I need to do a camp, I need to support my family... [BKFC said] We can't pay you, but Russia, they do bare-knuckle boxing and they're looking for boxers right now."

He spent about eight years in the world's leading MMA promotion, making his promotional debut in August 2014 and was released in August of last year.

Sam Alvey rose to prominence after breaking the UFC's record for the longest winless streak with eight losses and one draw.

 On May 27, Alvey will square off against Cameron Graham. Graham has a five-win, twelve-loss record.
