Kendall Grove vs Jay Silva booked for theScore Fighting Series on Oct. 14

There is life after UFC.

Former ZUFFA middleweights Kendall Grove and Jay Silva have been tapped to hook 'em up at theScore Fighting Series on Oct. 14 at the Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

MMA Die Hards brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.

Grove (13-9) was able to snap a two-fight losing streak, one that earned him a UFC pink slip, by strangling Joe Riggs at the ProElite event held in Hawaii just last month. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 champion has been consistently inconsistent since graduating from the Spike TV reality show and could boost his stock with a string of victories on the regional circuit.

But first he must get past the heavy hands of Silva.

After back-to-back decision losses to Chris Leben and C.B. Dollaway, Silva (7-4) was bounced from the UFC roster and immediately picked up by Bellator -- where he was promptly pasted by middleweight champion Hector Lombard.

Undaunted, the Reign MMA product got back on his horse and was able to string together consecutive wins for Tachi Palace Fights and Bellator, respectively.

Can he make it three in a row against "Da Spyder?"

theScore Figthing Series will feature a main event pitting "El Dirte," Joe Doerksen, against hard-hitting Bellator veteran Brett Cooper in a middleweight headliner.

Two other bouts slotted for the main card feature Lyndon Whitlock taking on Tristan Johnson while Eric Moon tests his might against Rory McDonell.
