Sam Alvey has been given a new opponent for his April 10th booking, now being paired against Julian Marquez instead of Zak Cummings. The change was announced by the UFC on Thursday.
The new matchup joins a UFC “Fight Night” card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
It is not known currently why Cummings withdrew from his fight.
Marquez is getting somewhat of a quick turnaround in the fight, as he made his return just last month with a submission win against Maki Pitolo. The fight was Marquez’s first fight in over two years.
Alvey’s return to the cage will see him look for his first victory since 2018. The UFC veteran has been winless in his last fight bouts, losing four and fighting to a draw in his most recent appearance, which came against Da Un Jung in October.
