More Signings for the UFC

Also in today's news is more signings for the UFC. Carlos Condit and Ben Henderson both inked new deals with the UFC today. Both fighters have signed multi-fight contract extensions with the UFC, First Round Management President Malki Kawa announced. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

This is a no-brainer for the UFC. Both men are on win streaks. Condit is on a 4 fight win streak with wins over Jake Ellenberger, Rory McDonald, Dan Hardy and Dong Hyun Kim. He also has a co-headlining bout scheduled against BJ Penn at UFC 137 on October 29th. In my opinion, if he beats Penn, he's next in line for a crack at the 170 pound title.

Henderson is on a 2 fight win streak beating Mark Bocek and Jim Miller. Henderson is considered a top contender at 155 pounds and is no more than 1 fight away from a title shot.

I really enjoy watching both fighters compete. I'm truly happy that the UFC has signed these guys to longer contracts.
