An interesting middleweight battle will go down in Nashville on Aug. 8.
Brunson (13-3), a Jackson's MMA fighter from Wilmington, N.C., has won four out of his past five bouts. His last fight was a first-round KO of Ed Herman in January, his second straight victory.
The bombastic Alvey (25-6) has made waves with his mouth, but the 29-year-old Team Quest fighter is just as fast becoming know for his fists. Alvey has three straight first-round stoppage finishes, the last being a knockout victory over Dan Kelly in Australia on May 10.
