In Alvey’s early career in Wisconsin he posted an 11-1 record, which included multiple wins in the King of the Cage promotion. Following a win at Light Heavyweight against Jason Guida in an NAFC bout, Alvey signed with Bellator. His debut match was at Middleweight where he defeated future Bellator Welterweight Tournament Champion Karl Amoussou at Bellator 45 on a split decision. Following that win, he was named a participant in Bellator Season Five Middleweight Tournament, where he faced Vitor Vianna and lost via split decision. As a participant in The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson, Alvey went on to win the MFC Middleweight Championship by defeating Jason South and successfully defended the title again against Wes Swofford.
