UFC veteran Raphael Assuncao is currently riding a three fight win streak, and the 30 year-old vet has reportedly been awarded for his efforts by the promotion. According to a tweet from Assuncao, the fighter has signed a new, four fight deal with the UFC.

The Brazilian fighter posted on his Twitter account:
