Canadian welterweight Jordan Mein (29-10-0) announced his retirement yesterday on the TV program UFC Tonight.

Mein is 25-years-old, but possesses a  12-year MMA career.

He leaves the UFC with a 3-2-0 record and a winner of five of his last seven fights.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.

Mein told ufc.com that he’d like to continue training and coaching, but is “Ready to transition to a different part of my life. I’ve been at this for 12 years, 10 years professionally, so I’m just ready to move on in my life.”

It was the Alberta promotion Rumble in the Cage (RITC) that cemented his MMA foundation, under the careful tutelage of his father Lee, a Canadian black belt under Bas Rutten’s BAS system.

Mein, in a 2013 interview with The Crossfire, said that he always considered his father’s guidance an advantage. After a stint with Strikeforce, Mein entered the UFC at 23-years-old in 2013 with an impressive TKO win over veteran Dan Miller at UFC 158.  A loss to Matt Brown set up two more wins, one to Hernani Perpetuo and Mike Pyle, before a TKO loss to Thiago Alves in his final fight.

The announcement follows 26-year-old Frankie Perez’s shocking retirement after defeating Sam Stout at UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon.
