Former UFC fighter Jake Shields will take on fellow former UFC fighter Brian Foster at WSOF 17 on January 17th.

The promotion confirmed the news with MMAJunkie, and also announced that the bout will serve as a title eliminator bout, with the winner facing reigning champion Rousimar Palhares.

Shields spoke about his opponent saying:

“He’s a good, well-rounded fighter. He has a lot of submissions and a lot of knockouts, so he’s dangerous everywhere. For me, I’d say he’s most dangerous on the feet.”
