Jay Silva wants to defend title the right way

Former middleweight wants to make mark as LXF heavyweight champion
Jay Silva wants to defend title the right way
Jay Silva is the LXF heavyweight champion, but he didnít win it in a fashion he was particularly proud of. The Brazilian brawler picked up the belt from Jack May at LXF 2 when May did not accept a fine from the California State Athletic Commision after both fighters were involved in a fight during the weigh-in, and thus, forfeited the title. May beat Mike Quintero to win the title during LXF 1, and now, the Mexican fighter will have his second chance at glory when he takes on Silva on Nov. 15 as the main event for LXF 4 at the Burbank Marriott Convention Center.
ďI just want to go out there and showcase all of the hard work Iíve put in my last two camps,Ē said Silva, who trains at RVCA in Orange County. ďJack May was intimidated by me, I know Mike Quintero wonít be. Weíre going to bring the fight to each other and itís going to be an explosion. Itís going to be a great fight.Ē

Silva (12-12-1) is riding a two-fight winning streak and has been champing at the bit to test his skills and make his official in-cage LXF debut against Quintero (5-2), a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt.

The 38-year-old Silva started his MMA career in 2008 as a middleweight. He made his heavyweight debut in 2017 and has gone 2-1 since. His lone loss as a heavyweight was a disputed majority decision against Mariusz Pudzianowski, a Guinness Book of World Record holder for strongest man. Although Silva took that fight on one-day notice, he said heís fully prepared for Quintero now that he has a full camp.

ďIím not the Jay Silva people might be used to,Ē he said. ďEveryone is going to be surprised on how well I carry my weight. Iím a completely different fighter and rejuvenated. I donít even recognize the fighter I used to be. Iím now more knowledgeable and experienced. Iíve changed so much as a person and fighter, and I canít wait for fans to see the new Jay on Nov. 15.Ē
