Eight-year veteran Jorge Rivera (16-7 MMA, 5-5 UFC) recently signed a new four-fight contract with the UFC, according to a new report from the Boston Herald.

Rivera's April split-decision win over Nissen Osterneck, his 10th for the UFC, completed his prior contract.

The 37-year-old has been rehabbing an injured left shoulder since the April win.

Really suprised with this. Last thing I heard was he was going to retire at the end of the year and I'm pretty sure he's not going to fight four times the rest of this year.

But I am happy to hear this. Jorge is a really good dude. One of the nicest guys in this sport. I've talked to him before at the Arnold Classic.
