Did you forget there was a WSOF event on last night? It’s okay, so did the guy on the left … (all GIFS courtesy of ZombieProphet):

WSOF 17: “Shields vs. Foster” took place last night from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV., featuring former Strikeforce champion and UFC alumni Jake Shields against another fellow UFC veteran Brian Foster.

The winner of their contest would go on to challenge Rousimar Palhares for the welterweight title at a later date, and despite the slow start, Shields scored his second consecutive submission win. He’s now 2-0 since being fired from the UFC:

Shields didn’t play nice in his post-fight interview when asked about the champion, stating he was “a dirty fighter” and that he’s going to “whoop his ass,” too. Apart from that, the event was rather slow, with a few notable occurrences. After all, every MMA media member devoted their Saturday night to a heavyweight boxing fight featuring Bermane Stiverne vs. Deontay Wilder, which also took place in Las Vegas.

Joe Condon hit one hell of a Hail Mary, choking out Johnny Nunez with under one minute left in their co-main event contest. The guillotine was pretty freaking nasty, to say the least (that’s not Brian Cobb, though … he was injured on a treadmill):

Bryson Hansen defeated Rudy Morales in a dud of a fight, minus the fact that Morales was cut in the first round and bled all over the place. This is an early candidate for GIF of the year, presumably titled, “Look Ma! I’m actually not roadkill:”

Danny Davis Jr. defeated Adam Cella via unanimous decision, but he was lucky to not get disqualified for a Steven Gerrard-style bullet to Cella’s cranium:

On the preliminary card, Jordan Rinaldi scored a sweet submission over Soslan Abanokov earlier in the evening, submitting the latter with an americana:

And finally, apart from the other uneventful fights, the torrid theme music, interviews in between fights, shitty video players MMA sites still have the patience for, and a ring announcer named Jazz Securo, referee Kim Winslow really dropped the ball by letting Trey Williams hold onto his anaconda choke for way too long and nearly killed Jamie Point in the process. Point’s stiff, cold body and long stare is downright harrowing:
