Fickett Out At Strikeforce

Drew Fickett

Earlier today I reported that Drew Fickett was scheduled to replace Joe Riggs at the Strikeforce event in San Jose, CA; yet another turn of events took place as Mike Russell of The Fight Network reports that Fickett will have to pull out of the Strikeforce card, due to previous contractual obligations.  It appears that Fickett had signed to fight Ryan Ford for the Maximum Fighting Championship welterweight title at MFC 17: Hostile Takeover on July 24; Fickett’s contract with MFC forbids him from competing six weeks prior to a fight, according to MFC promoter Mark Pavelich.  No replacement has been found for Joe Riggs or Fickett as of this writing; stay tuned to Octagon Buzz for up-to-date developments.
