    Default Drew Fickett shows up drunk, bout called off

    He was supposed to fight Shannon Ritch tonight and multiple sources are saying they would not let him compete because he had been drinking earlier in the day.

    If true... damn. What a waste of a talented fighter

    His opponent confirms it:

    From: ShannonRitch

    Its True...
    I showed up to fight, made weight- and waited for Drew.
    Drew finally showed up, saw him with the DR. Pre fight physcial and YEP- he was a little waisted. Police were out front they gave Drew a breath- a- lizer- I believe I heard them say he blew a .18 (2X the legal limit.)
    Its just Sad, I am a huge Drew Fickett fan, he is a great fighter, but obvisiously has a problem. He is in a dark time in his life. I hope he gets it together.

    All I can say about RITC- Rage In The Cage is-
    They did the right thing, They paid me in full and even tried to get another fighter to replace Drew, no lUCk.
    JPET and ROLAND did all they could to get the fight to happen, even going as far as giving DREW time to sober up,
    To no avail...he was just really DRUNK.?

    My hat is off to RITC- They actually treated me with the ut most respect and My sponsers that came and bought 25 ringside 50.00 dollars seats, Roland said he would make it up to them on another show. I hope RITC will give me another opportunity to fight. Im sad for the fans that bought tickets- I had over 100 people there from my home town to watch me fight, Maybe next time.

    I hope Drew gets his life back on track!

    Shannon "The Cannon"

    After the Cung Le PPV he was actually pretty funny. Didn't remember him being like that during his stint in the UFC. This is pretty sad he's a good MW, but really...do you have to drink the DAY OF the weigh in? Take a Xanax or something.

    EDIT: Just read that after his last fight for Strikeforce, he cut ties with MFC and Strikeforce over a contract debate. And apparently he's lost like 7 fights since then. Doesn't sound good for Drew.

    He's got bigger problems than his fighting right now.

    He needs to take time off and re-evaluate his life, or choose a new career.

    I forgot about Drew for awhile...after looking up his recent fights I can't believe this is the same guy that beat Kos and Neer. I hope he gets it together.
