Price Signs A Four-Fight Extension With The UFC
Looking to climb his way up the ladder in the UFC’s welterweight standings, Niko Price will be staying with the promotion just a little bit longer.
Via social media, Price stated he signed a new four-fight contract with the UFC.
“”BREAKING NEWS!!! I forgot to mention I signed a new 4 fight contract. I’m so blessed and thankful for the @ufc! I’ll be sure to keep it entertaining for you guys!”
Price, who has beaten Vick, Tim Means and Randy Brown, was set to face Muslim Salikhov on April 11 at UFC Portland before the coronavirus shut that event down. It is unknown if the match will be rescheduled or where it would take place.
The 30-year-old made his debut in the UFC in 2016, beating Brandon Thatch via submission. Price (14-3, 1NC) then fought Alex Morono to a no-contest after testing positive for marijuana. He has since gone 5-3 in with the promotion for a total of 6-3 with 1 NC. “The Hybrid” last fought at UFC Tampa in October, beating James Vick via KO.
