With Dan Miller sidelined by an infection, UFC newcomer Jay Silva has agreed to fill his shoes in a middleweight match-up against C.B. Dollaway.
The two will face off at UFC Fight Night 19 which is set for the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City on September 16 and will air live on Spike TV.
The news of the bout comes courtesy of a recent report from MMAMadness.com.
Dollaway, a former All-American wrestler out of Arizona State University that trains out of Arizona Combat Sports, will be looking to get back on the winning trail after disappointing first round guillotine choke at the hands of Tom Lawlor during UFC 100. Prior to that he had strung together back to back victories in the Octagon over Jesse Taylor and Mike Massenzio.
Silva earned a reputation as a knockout artist as an amateur, compiling an undefeated record while finishing all seven of his fights. As a professional Silva has continued to go undefeated with a record of 5-0 with four knockouts to his credit.
