After UFC 139, one thing is certain. It's going to take a lot more than a two-fight losing streak to stop Rick Story (13-5).

The 27-year-old welterweight re-signed with the UFC on Wednesday, inking a four-fight deal just days after losing a narrow decision to Martin Kampmann in San Jose. Terms of the contract have not been released. Story announced the news via his Twitter account.

"I just signed a new 4 fight contract with the UFC," he wrote. "Be ready for me to fight again soon!"

Over the weekend "The Horror" nearly return to his winning ways, as he stumbled his Danish opponent with a series of blistering hooks in the opening minutes of their bout at UFC 139. Kampmann recovered to win the next two rounds on the judges' scorecards, but at that point Story was battling more than he let on.

"I wanted to apologize to all of my fans for my last performance. I ruptured my bursa sack and tore my meniscus in the second round," he revealed on Wednesday. "I lost all strength and made it difficult to fight."

No timetable has been given for a return to action, however the fighter was handed down a 60-day suspension from the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday. Story is now 6-3 in his UFC career.
