According to UFC welterweight Niko Price, he won’t be going anywhere for awhile.
In a tweet posted Saturday, Price (14-3 MMA, 6-3) announced he’s signed a new four-fight deal with the promotion. Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“BREAKING NEWS!!! I forgot to mention I signed a new 4 fight contract,” Price said. “I’m so blessed and thankful for the @ufc! I’ll be sure to keep it entertaining for you guys!”
A member of the UFC roster since December 2016, Price has racked up the wins – and the finishes – in his 10-fight promotional stint. He holds four performance bonuses (all for ‘Performance of the Night’).
Over the span of his most recent six outings, Price has gone 4-2 with finishes over George Sullivan, Randy Brown, Tim Means, and James Vick. Under the UFC’s banner, Price has accumulated an extensive highlight reel. He holds victories via upkick and hammerfists from his back.
Prior to the promotion’s postponement of UFC on ESPN+ 30, Price was expected to face Muslim Salikhov (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at the April 11 event in Portland, Ore.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event was briefly moved to the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. However, the card was later postponed along with UFC on ESPN+ 29 and UFC on ESPN 8.
No rescheduled date has been announced at this time.
