Sam Alvey wanted to get in another fight before the end of the year and at UFC Gdansk he will get his chance.

According to reports out of Russia, Alvey (31-9) has agreed to step in as a last minute replacement for Trevor Smith on October 21.

Alvey will take on former M-1 Challenge champion Ramazan Emeev (15-3) who will be making his UFC debut in Poland.

Emeev had fought exclusively in M-1 since 2011 and was a two time M-1 middleweight champion.

Alvey is coming off the back of a win at UFC Fight Night Mexico City against Rashad Evans.
