UFC lightweight Mark Bocek (pictured) has decided to call it a career. The 32-year-old unceremoniously announced his retirement from mixed martial arts Tuesday night via Twitter.

“I’m retiring from pro mma. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me and supported me throughout this journey. Onto the next chapter,” Bocek posted.

Bocek is doing something a lot of fighters don’t get the opportunity to – go out on a win. The submission specialist was last seen taking a split decision over Mike de la Torre in April at “The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale.”

The 10-year veteran leaves the game with a 12-5 professional record, with all but his first four scraps taking place in the UFC.
