UFC Veteran Jay Silva Chokes Out Kendall Grove At SCC 4

UFC veteran Jay Silva became the first man to ever submit Ultimate Fighter winner Kendall Grove* last night at Superior Cage Combat 4 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the co-main event (also featuring two UFC vets) lightweight John Gunderson submitted Justin Buchholz to take the SCC LW title.

Sherdog was at the scene:

Silva didn't just walk right through his much taller opponent; he had some difficulty in dealing with Grove's long reach and quick hands. Grove landed several thudding kicks to Silva's leg and his jab and hooks were causing his opponent some grief. Still, the Huntington Beach, Calif.-based fighter was resilient and wanted to stand and bang with Grove whenever he could.

He got his wish in the second, and it paid dividends as an errant right hand landed on Grove's temple, buckling his legs. "Da Spyder" tried to regroup and hide the fact that he was hurt, but his rubbery legs betrayed him and he eventually crumbled to the canvas. Silva (8-5) pounced and doled out a vicious attack, but Grove (14-10) was able to survive and pull guard. However, Silva scrambled out and latched on the choke, ending the fight when Grove was rendered unconscious.

* In an MMA bout. A BE reader informed me that Grove has been submitted in a grappling contest by Marcus Wilson (video).
