Eight-time Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Nick Hein has elected to hang up his four-ounce gloves.

The German lightweight announced his retirement following a second-round technical knockout loss to Frank Camacho at UFC Stockholm on Saturday. It was the 35-year-old’s third consecutive defeat within the Las Vegas-based promotion.

“20 years judo sports (600 fights), including 10 on the national team. [one] decade MMA, [five] years in the UFC. I’m ready for the next chapter. Thanks to all. I am looking forward to the future,” Hein wrote on Facebook.

Hein exits the sport with a 14-5 record that includes one no contest. The former German police officer made his Octagon debut in May 2014 and was a staple on the organization’s international cards – particularly in his home country. Hein won four of his first five Octagon appearances before ending his pro tenure on a three-bout skid.
