Ben Henderson, Carlos Condit Sign Contract Extensions With UFC

via prommanow.com

Two former WEC fighters currently on hot streaks signed contract extensions with the UFC recently. First Round Management, who handles both fighters, recently put out a press release to tout the extensions. Here's an exerpt:

Rising MMA stars Ben “Smooth” Henderson  and “The Natural Born Killer” Carlos Condit have agreed to new multi-fight contracts with the UFC, First Round Management President and CEO Malki Kawa announced.  Terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

“These fight contract extensions show the MMA world that the UFC values Ben Henderson and Carlos Condit as two of its top, young stars,” Kawa said. “Both are only 27 years old and have proven that they are contenders for titles in their weight divisions and also have strong fan bases. Fans will now be able to see them continue to grow in the octagon.”

After losing his WEC lightweight title in the last-ever WEC fight to Anthony Pettis, Henderson has looked extremely good in the UFC so far by picking up decision wins over Mark Bocek and Jim Miller. Condit has won four in a row in the UFC after a razor-thin loss to Martin Kampmann in his UFC debut, and will fight legend B.J. Penn in the co-main event of UFC 137.
