Alright, if you're watching one MMA event this weekend, likely it's not WSOF 22. And that's too bad, because honestly it's a pretty good card that just might have the most interesting matchup of the week. In the main event, long time top tier middle and welterweight Jake Shields is taking on WSOF champion and leg lock submission specialist Rousimar Palhares for the 170 lb title. Shields has never lost by submission, Palhares has only gotten 3 non submission wins in 17. Someone's game is going to have to break.
The co-main event sees two Brazilian Muay Thai Strikers named Moraes face off as bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes defends his belt against young newcomer Sheymon Moraes. And that doesn't even get us to the two top Dagestani talents on the card, Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Islam Mamedov. All told, a pretty damn solid night of fights from WSOF.
