“Elvis was very disappointed when he called me and told me what happened, he was very confident going in to this fight and looked at this as his biggest fight of his career” SCC promoter Ryan Langmaid said. “I am very happy with the signing of Jay Silva though. Jay has fought some of the best Middleweight fighters in the world, including Hector Lombard and Chris Leben, and this will definitely be a tough match-up for Bristol.”
Jay Silva currently trains alongside UFC notables including Mark Munoz and Jake Ellenberger, representing Reign MMA. Silva is a two-time UFC veteran and has also fought twice in Bellator. In his most recent fight he scored a first round KO against Jaime Jara, ending the fight in only 33 seconds.
