The UFC has come to terms with one of its up-and-coming heavyweight prospects.

Undefeated Tai Tuivasa recently signed a new four-fight contract with the promotion, MMA Fighting has learned.

The first fight under Tuivasa’s new deal will be against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 225 on June 9 in Chicago.

The 25-year-old Tuivasa (7-0), who hails from Sydney, Australia, improved to 2-0 in the UFC last month when he defeated Cyril Asker via TKO. All seven of his professional victories have come via either KO or TKO in the first round.
