Win big fights in the UFC and you shall be rewarded.
Jake Ellenberger, who just recently knocked out former Strikeforce champion Jake Shields, has signed a new 6-fight contract with the UFC.
Ellenberger confirmed the news with MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.
Since coming to the UFC in 2009, Ellenberger has gone 5-1 with his only loss coming by way of split decision to current welterweight title contender Carlos Condit.
Since that time, Ellenberger has vaulted into the top ten with big wins over Mike Pyle, John Howard and most recently becoming the first person to finish Jake Shields in over 10 years.
Ellenberger just got back into training with his team at the Reign Training Center in California where he will await word on his next fight in the Octagon.
