Duane “Bang” Ludwig on Wednesday not only signed a bout agreement to fight Che Mills at UFC on Fuel TV 5 on Sept. 29 in Nottingham, England; he also signed a new four-fight contract with the promotion.

UFC officials on Tuesday informed MMAWeekly.com that verbal agreements were in place for the fight in Nottingham, but after signing his bout agreement, Ludwig confirmed his new four-fight contract as well.

Ludwig’s history with the promotion dates all the way back to UFC 42, when he scored a unanimous decision victory over Genki Sudo. He later followed that up with the fastest knockout in UFC history, putting Johnathan Goulet’s lights out in just six seconds.

His recent run in the Octagon has seen him go 2-4 and he enters the fight with Mills coming off back-to-back losses to Josh Neer and Dan Hardy.

Ludwig, despite a .500 overall record in the UFC, is one of those fighters that UFC president Dana White has always been appreciative of.

“He’s always a kid that’s been on the radar, always hanging out there and ready and willing to fight,” White once said of Ludwig, who has often taken fights on short notice and even fought in for the promotion in Germany during the birth of his son.
