MMA journalist Artur Mazur was the first to report the news of the planned Alvey vs. Oleksiejczuk matchup set for an Aug. 6 Fight Night.
Alvey is desperately looking to get back in the win column following seven straight losses. His last win came in a split decision against Gian Villante in June 2018.
After having two different opponents pull out of his last fight, Alvey ended up facing Brendan Allen in a light heavyweight matchup in February. He would lose to the short-notice replacement Allen via second-round submission.
Alvey has been in the UFC for years, making his Octagon debut back in Aug. 2014 following a run on The Ultimate Fighter: Season 16. He has picked up wins over the likes of Kevin Casey, Rashad Evans, and Nate Marquardt over his UFC career.
Alvey will face a tough challenge in the form of Oleksiejczuk, who has won two of his last three fights. His last fight ended in a unanimous decision defeat to Dustin Jacoby at UFC 272.
Alvey and Oleksiejczuk add to a stacked card for the Aug. 6 UFC Fight Night event. The card features a light heavyweight headliner between Thiago Santos and Jamahal Hill, preceded by a welterweight matchup between Vicente Luque and Geoff Neal.
