Well, it looks like that rumored grudge match between Eric Silva and Mike Pierce has been put on the backburner, because Pierce just booked Eduardo Rocha for a vacant slot on the UFC on FX 3 card.

Rocha broke the news via his official facebook account.

UFC on FX 3 is tentatively scheduled for June 8, but a location and venue have yet to be revealed by company officials.
