Jay Silva is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who most recently fought as a Middleweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

MMA careerEdit

Raised on the East Coast, Silva's interest in mixed martial arts developed after seeing the first season of The Ultimate Fighter.[1] He subsequently trained under Renzo Gracie in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, having obtained the level of purple belt.[1] Silva currently trains alongside UFC notables including Quinton Jackson and Cheick Kongo.

Competing primarily in smaller organizations, Silva received a call from the UFC to fill in as a last minute replacement for Dan Miller and made his debut against C.B. Dollaway at UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Guillard.

Silva most recently faced Chris Leben on January 11, 2010 at UFC Fight Night 20, losing via decision. Silva hopes for a rematch with Leben in the near future.[2]

Silva was released from the UFC along with Kyle Bradley after his loss at UFC Fight Night 20.[3] Template:-
