Sam Alvey Posts X-Ray of Broken Hand That Punted “Shogun” Rua Bout
Sam Alvey has been forced out of a fight with the legendary "Shogun" Rua next month, and recently the vet posted x-ray evidence as to why.
Alvey’s withdrawal from UFC Sao Paulo
Alvey and Rua were booked to fight at the UFC’s upcoming card in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and recently it was announced that “Smile’n” Alvey had dropped out. More recently, however, the 33-year-old shared out the comments and image below.
I am so sorry @shogunoficial and @ufc. I broke my hand and i need to pull out of my fight on Nov. 16. An accident in practice has taken me out. My plan and his☝️ plan don’t always align but his plan is always better #godisgood.

Current line-up for the November 16th card
The UFC has yet to find a replacement for Alvey, so, it’s not clear whether Rua will still compete at the upcoming event. If the UFC can’t find an opponent for Rua, it will certainly be a big hit to the card, and time is getting short. The Brazilian star has yet to compete since he took out Tyson Pedro last December.
Here is the current line-up for UFC Sao Paulo (via MMA Fighting).
