Jim Miller isn’t parting ways with the UFC anytime soon. MMA reporter Aaron Bronsteter recently broke the news that Miller has signed a four-fight extension with the multi-billion dollar promotion.

According to Bronsteter, the signing took place after the UFC 276 weigh-in ceremony on Friday.

BREAKING: Jim Miller has agreed to a four-fight extension with the UFC. He signed it yesterday after the ceremonial weigh-ins.

Miller faced fellow UFC veteran Donald Cerrone in a welterweight bout on July 2. In the second round, both fighters kicked, knocking “Cowboy” off balance. ‘A-10’ took the opportunity, sinking into a guillotine choke on his opponent. After struggling for a bit, Cerrone tapped out the submission.

During his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, Cerrone removed his gloves and announced his retirement from the sport.

“I don’t love him anymore Joe. I’m having a hard time getting up, and this is the longest camp I’ve had in a long time and I’m not complaining to anyone. I don’t love him anymore. I Gonna be a movie star, baby So it’s time to bow out… It’s the perfect event, man Crowd sold out, Las Vegas, I’m talking to you, got my boys, a hell of a career, man. I hope one day I’ll be in the Hall of Fame and thank you so much UFC.”
