According to Renzo Gracie, Middleweight Rafael Natal has signed a 4-fight deal with UFC. Natal is an instructor ("professor") at Gracie's New York City-based academy. Natal has a 12-2 MMA record and is coming off a win against Travis Lutter at the recent Moosin MMA event in Massachusetts. He had originally signed with Shine Fights in February but never fought for them.
