Maximum Fighting Championship Inks UFC Veteran Jay Silva to Multi-Fight Deal
veteran Jay Silva
agreed to a multi-fight contract with the
Maximum Fighting Championship
The Canada-based promotion announced the signing on Friday. Silva
is expected to make his debut at MFC 36
“Reality Check” on Feb. 15 in Edmonton, Alberta, against an
as-yet-to-be-named opponent. The card will air live on AXS TV.
Silva is a huge talent, and can become an absolute wrecking
machine in the Maximum Fighting Championship,” MFC President Mark
Pavelich stated in a release. “The days are over when Jay took
fights at the last minute, on short notice and without a proper
training camp. He knows he’s fighting in February and I think
you’ll see the best Jay Silva
ever. The rest of the middleweight division should take notice now
because a rejuvenated, reincarnated Jay Silva is
coming to the MFC.”
Silva has competed twice in 2012, most recently dropping a split
decision to Michal
Materla at KSW 19 in May. Prior to that defeat, the 31-year-old
Reign MMA member submitted “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 3 winner
Grove in the second round at Superior Cage Combat 4 in Las
Silva’s stint in the UFC was brief, as the Huntington Beach,
Calif., resident lost decisions to C.B.
Dollaway and Chris Leben
in his only two Octagon appearances.
