MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-American fighter Mark Munoz is returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after reaching a new deal with the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion outfit.

“Just re-signed!” “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” happily announced through his Facebook account after negotiations with UFC executives.

The UFC temporarily removed Munoz from the middleweight rankings after his contract expired last May, following his loss to Dutch striker Gegard Mousasi in UFC Fight Night Berlin.

But according to MMA Fighting, the heavy-handed Filipino-American was able to secure a four-fight contract, extending his stay in the world’s biggest MMA promotion.
