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.
