Following a quick submission loss at this past weekend's UFC on FX 5 card, it appears Shane Roller will retire.

The lightweight fighter on Monday said on his Twitter account that he has decided to move on to new things after his loss to Jacob Volkmann in Minneapolis on Friday night.

"Looks like I'm hanging up the gloves for good," Roller stated. "It was fun, but time to move on. Sux that it ended like that. Now startn (sic) the next chapter!!"

Roller (11-7 MMA, 2-4 UFC) was stopped by Volkmann (15-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) at 2:38 of the first round with a rear-naked choke. The fight was part of the preliminary card of UFC on FX 5, which took place at Target Center. The fight aired on FUEL TV.

I'll miss Shane for sure, he was always fun to watch. Good luck to him on whatever it is he's pursuing now

Good Call on his part, he hasn't been the same since his illness, and I wouldn't want him to risk anymore of his well-being. WEC WILL NEVER DIE!

It was an HONOR seeing you knock out Thiago Tavares

Stay healthy and wealthy!

I could see it too, maybe by the summer, could see him try a comeback in a smaller circuit.
