Fickett Injury puts EXC WW Title Fight On Hold

0

The following is from MMAWeekly.com

“Obviously the back injury happened (to Shields) and the easiest thing to do was move him to Hawaii to fight Drew,” said Shaw in the interview with MMAWeekly Radio. “Unfortunately since then Drew Fickett has hurt his knee and he’s not going to be able to take that fight on June 14 and that will be rescheduled again.”

This quote comes EliteXC Vice Preisdent Jared Shaw who broke the news that this will put the Welterweight clash between Jake Shields and Drew Fickett to a later date. The fight was first scheduled to take place MArch 29th but Shields was forced out of fight with a back injury.
