"Jake Shields (31-7-1) will soon challenge WSOF welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares after earning a quick first-round submission win over Brian Foster (22-7).

The bout served as the headlining contest of Saturday’s “WSOF 17: Shields vs. Foster” event, which took place at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and aired on AXS TV.

Shields worked hard to move into the clinch at the start of the fight, though Foster’s takedown defends was solid as he looked to box. However, after some scrambling, Shields slipped a punch and scored a textbook takedown to gain top control. From there, he moved to side mount and then mount. Foster tried to roll, but Shields was tight on the back and got his arm wrapped around the neck. The chin appeared to be tucked, but Shields squeezed hard and got the tap.

With the victory, Shields earns a title shot against champ Palhares, and the two will meet later this year."

This is going to be good. Can Palhares get to Detective Shields legs? That is the question...

^^^^^^^
Sounds like Jake will have months to investigate Paul before locking him up late in the third. I'll go with that prediction, sub late in 3rd.
