Following Alvey’s (31-9 MMA, 8-4 UFC) split-decision win over Rashad Evans at UFC Fight Night 114 on Saturday, “Smile’n” Sam called for a matchup with Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC). He said he wants to get revenge against everyone who has beaten his friend, mentor and training partner Dan Henderson – something “The Phenom” has done twice.
Belfort caught win of Alvey’s request for a future middleweight fight, and the Brazilian accepted with a threat (via Instagram):

You are gonna make history: You Will be the 1st man to get knockdown with a smile on the face ?? @ufc Just send me the bout agreement // @smilensam vamos lutar em Vegas.
