Tonight, Tom Lawlor confirmed exclusively to the Underground that he has signed a 4-fight contract extension with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Lawlor has been in the UFC since 2008, after completing a stint on the Ultimate Fighter Season 8 reality show. He was most recently seen in action last month at the UFC on Fuel 3 event, defeating Jason Macdonald by knockout in the 1st round. The win also earned him the event's Knockout of the Night bonus.

Lawlor sports an 8-4 overall record and is 4-3 inside the Octagon.

He is currently awaiting word for his next booking, but has kept himself busy with traveling and eating. He doesn't have anyone in particular in mind at his weight, but would love a chance to scrap with Stefan Struve if the UFC is interested.

When asked what drives him to continue competing, he answered: "I fight to support my cats and I hope to one day be a brewmaster."
