Undefeated welterweight Lance Benoist (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is octagon bound.

A source close to the promotion today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fighter has signed a four-fight deal with the UFC.

Benoist's debut has not been set.

A standout on the Midwest regional circuit, Benoist brings an impressive (albeit brief) resume into a deep division.

He has ended all of his five professional fights and all but one of his six amateur fights in the first round. In fact, two of his first three professional victories came in the opening minute of the first round.

While his amateur record is marked by TKO victories, his professional record boasts four submission wins.

The last thing I would call the welterweight division is "deep".
