The lineup is set for next month’s WSOF 14 event, and in addition to a Jake Shields vs. Jason Ford headliner, the organization’s inaugural heavyweight title will be up for grabs.

Officials today announced that Derrick Mehmen (18-5) and Smealinho Rama (8-1) will fight for the inaugural championship.

WSOF 14 takes place Oct. 11 at the Edmonton EXPO Centre in Alberta, Canada. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network following prelims on MMAjunkie.

Mehmen fights for the fourth time under the WSOF banner and looks for his seventh consecutive victory overall. The 29-year-old American Top Team fighter most recently earned a decision victory over Dave Huckaba at WSOF 10. He now meets Rama, a 22-year-old Canadian and MFC vet who’s defeated NCAA Division I wrestling national champion Steve Mocco and UFC vet Tim Hague in his most recent performances.

Also on the main card is Canadian featherweight and former WEC fighter Chris Horodecki (20-5-1), who looks to rebound from a Bellator 119 loss to Marlon Sandro when he meets Luis Huete (6-1), a Havoc Fighting Championship vet who’s posted three straight stoppage wins.

Additionally, Latvian light heavyweight Misha Cirkunov (7-2) kicks off the main card against Teddy Holder (8-1).

The full WSOF 14 lineup includes:
