The UFC's smallest division has a new addition. According to reports from Canada's Sportsnet, bantamweight veteran Nick Denis (10-2) has signed a multi-fight contract with the promotion. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 28-year-old had his profile added to on Friday, lending credence to the report.

Affectionately known as "The Ninja of Love", Denis is a 5'6" knockout artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He storms into the UFC on the heels of an electrifying performance against Nick Mamalis at October's Wreck MMA event. Just minutes into the bout's second round, Denis picked up the Bellator veteran and violently suplexed him to the ground for a stunning knockout.

Prior to that the Ronin MMA product racked up wins in nine of eleven contests, with eight of them coming by way of knockout. Denis has yet to fight to a decision in his career, and holds losses to former Sengoku champion Marlon Sandro and Yuji Hoshino.
