Former UFC fighter Jake Shields will headline World Series Of Fighting 14 in Canada on October 11th against Ryan Ford.

The 35 year-old Shields will be making his WSOF debut after being released from the UFC back in March after a one-sided decision loss to Hector Lombard.

Prior to that Shields had been undefeated in four fights, and while his performances hadn’t set the Octagon alight, he did earn split decision victories over notable opponents in Demain Maia and Tyron Woodley.

In Ford he meets WSOF’s current Canadian champion who earned that accolade with a first round KO victory against Joel Powell at WSOF Canada 1 back in February.

He’s currently on a six fight winning streak and holds an overall 22-4 record, fighting for promotions like Bellator, MFC, TFC and most recently AFC, winning a number of titles along the way.

Shields Vs Ford is the first fight announced for the event in Edmonton, Alberta.
