Fickett Replaces Riggs At Strikeforce

Drew Fickett

As I reported on Thursday, Joe Riggs was unable to get licensed to fight at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Thomson; MMARated.com reports that Drew Fickett will replace Riggs on the card, presumably to take on Luke Stewart.  This development came to pass as Riggs was not cleared by the California State Athletic Commission to fight Stewart at the Strikeforce event, scheduled to take place on Friday; this was due to a medication issue which precluded Riggs from fighting as scheduled.  But as things stand right now, Fickett will enter the octagon against Stewart.
