Rafael 'Sapo' Natal signs new four-fight deal with UFC

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting
Rafael "Sapo" Natal has signed a new multi-fight contract with the UFC.

According to Natal's manager, Ali Abdel-Aziz, the Brazilian middleweight recently inked a four-fight extension with the promotion. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 30-year-old, who currently lives in New York City, most recently submitted Sean Spencer with an arm-triangle choke in the third round of their UFC on FOX 6 fight in January. The win improved his UFC record to 3-2-1. He's 15-4-1 overall.

The contract is not guaranteed, which means the UFC could release Natal after a loss or if he breaches the terms of the contract.

No word just yet on when the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt will return to action.
