Two top notch wrestlers are set to square off at UFC 151 in September as Shane Roller faces Jacob Volkmann in Las Vegas.

Roller announced the fight via his Twitter account on Tuesday.

“Got another fight lined up. Sept 1 in Vegas at Mandalay Bay vs. Jacob Volkmann,” Roller wrote.

Roller gets back in action just a few weeks after his last fight and win over John Alessio at UFC 148 also in Las Vegas.

As for Jacob Volkmann, after putting together a solid winning streak at lightweight the outspoken Minnesota native finally tasted defeat in his last fight where he was submitted by ground ace Paul Sass at UFC 146.

It was the first loss for Volkmann after five wins in a row after dropping down to 155lbs.

Now he’ll look to get back on track against fellow grappler Shane Roller at UFC 151 in September.

    I really hope Roller wins, I can’t stand to listen to another of volkmanns idiotic rants. ANYONE that turns his 1 minute victory interview into a political rant is just a goof, and a dumb ass one at that.
