UFC welterweight fighter Mike Swick has more than just one reason to be smiling today.

After taking off nearly 2.5 years from his professional combat career, he successfully returned to action this month and earned “Knock out of the Night” honors when he faced off with DaMarques Johnson.

He now has announced through his official twitter account that the UFC has renewed his contract for four more fights.

Additionally, the UFC has booked his next appearance set for UFC on FOX 5 opposite Matt Brown.

UFC on FOX 5 is set to take place on December 8 from Seattle’s KeyArena. In the main event Benson Henderson will attempt to defend his lightweight title for the second consecutive time against Nate Diaz. BJ Penn vs. Rory MacDonald are also booked for main card action.

As mentioned previously, Swick returned to action earlier this month for the first time since June of 2009. The welterweight was able to take out his opponent DaMarques Johnson with a brutal second round knockout that earned him “KO of the Night.”

Facing Swick will be the hard hitting, always tough, Matt Brown. Brown is riding high on a three-fight win streak that includes victories over the likes of Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Chris Cope and most recently a TKO win over Luis Ramos at UFC on FX 4.
