Shane Roller announces retirement from UFC via Twitter

Shane Roller retires from the sport of MMA following his UFC on FX 5 loss to Jacob Volkmann.

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Shane Roller lost in very one sided fashion to Jacob Volkmann at this past Friday's UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot card, getting submitted in the first round. It was Volkmann's first stoppage win in nine UFC fights an Roller's fourth loss in his last five outings.

It looks as though the loss was enough to convince Roller to end his MMA career as he just tweeted out the following:

Roller never quite hit the level that many expected him to as a former three time All-American wrestler from Oklahoma State, but he did have some impressive submission wins over Danny Castillo, Anthony Njokuani and Jamie Varner as well as a TKO of Thiago Tavares in his time fighting in the WEC and UFC.

Hopefully Roller has success with the next chapter of his life.
