UFC, Michael Chiesa Reach New Deal

Michael Chiesa will remain with the UFC for the foreseeable future, signing a four-fight extension with the promotion.

Chiesa (14-3) still had one fight remaining on his contract, but opted to sign a new deal now instead of waiting.

Earlier this year, the former Ultimate Fighter winner suffered a submission loss to Kevin Lee. Chiesa, who is 7-3 with the UFC, did not tap to the hold, instead the referee called an end to the fight.
