Ultimate Fighter Season 8 finalist Vinny Magalhaes has agreed to extend his partnership with M-1 Global after winning three of his last four bouts including a successful appearance last month against Russian Alihan Magomedov at M-1 Challenge 22. His deal includes six bouts under the organization’s banner according to an official press release from the company.

“M-1 Global is looking to expand its roster with fighters who are at the top of their game and Vinny is by far one of the best submission experts on the planet. The skills he possesses are unparalleled,” explained Director of Operations for M-1 Global Evgeni Kogan of the deal. “With the growth that M-1 Global is going through, extending a long-term contract to Magalhaes is the right thing to do for us a promotion. We have expectations that Vinny will become one of the greatest fighters in the world and are proud to have him on board.”

Hey Vinny congrats! I realize you're not managed by M-1 only fighting on their shows, but any chance of getting to train with Fedor? I'm sure you could help him prepare for a potential rematch with Werdum and he could probably help you improve your overall game. Seems like a win-win to me.

Damn, Vinny. I've never seen you get wound up by the haters like this. I'd rather see you respond with your normal good humor. Good luck with the new contract!

And? one must be a true retard wanting to get hit in the head and face severe neurological injuries later on.Also he's good looking, and probably making a lot of money off his face, another reason not wanting to end up looking like Mickey Rourke in the old age.

Andrei Arlovski's first 3 MMA fights ever were for M-1. They've been around in MMA much longer than Zuffa.
