It’s been a long, hard road back for Duane “Bang” Ludwig but perseverance and hard work pays off and now the UFC has rewarded the Colorado fighter a new four fight contract with the promotion.

Ludwig’s manager Sven Bean confirmed the new contract with MMAWeekly.com on Sunday.

It looked like the darkest moment for Ludwig when in a fight against Darren Elkins at the first UFC on Versus show, he snapped his ankle in a gruesome injury. Ludwig underwent surgery and had to sit out for an extended time, but returned at full strength at UFC 122 in Germany and looked back to form.

Ludwig defeated Nick Osipczak via split decision and got his career back on track.

Now with the injury long behind him, Ludwig hopes to make the most out of this new four fight deal with the UFC, and according to his camp he’s looking towards a March return to the Octagon.

There are several rumored shows for March including another UFC on Versus show as well as a potential card in Abu Dhabi, although recently UFC president Dana White has seemed less than positive about that card taking place.

Whatever the case may be, Ludwig will continue to train and show the UFC why he earned the new contract and plans to show it again in 2011.
