Drew Fickett is supposed to fight this weekend at WMMA in El Paso, Tx. Today they were doing promo and photo shoots and he was so blasted, Karo had to carry him to his room.

A drunk on the main card, and classy veterans on the undercard like Buentello and Beerbohm. Phone Post

Being wasty-faced doing a promo is classless and unprofessional, that being said lets not sit here and pretend Buentello should be on any main card anytime soon.

He was looking good winning 5 in a row. I can see why he lost 4 straight.

I didn't say Paul was prime time or anything right now, i just was pointing out that ficket will be main event and get more money from sponsors etc, and you have other guys who try and do it right and get the shaft. Phone Post

People are sponsoring this event? I'd be impressed if the PPV actually happens.

Drew Fickett is pretty much the poster boy for "What If?" as far as wasted talent. Such a crazy skilled guy who could have done so much if he'd taken on his demons earlier in his career... I'd say it's 50/50 on whether he actually fights in this next event. Showing up drunk to press conferences is one thing, but this guy has also been pulled out of fights for showing up to the cage drunk.

It's really too bad; hopefully he can take some time to just get his life together. Even if that means he never fights again and just starts over at McDonalds or whatever, his life will be better for it.

I heard he has had this problem for a while. Promoters don't care they just use him.

Alcoholism is dark. My dad only stopped drinking shortly before he died, when his MS got so bad he was in too much pain and discomfort to drink anymore.

Personally i think there should be a rule about a guy showing up pre-fight to any event (week or so out) and being intoxicated. Poses health risks and if promoters know, holds them and commission liable. Phone Post

 Oh shit man this is terrible news. I wondered what was going on with Fickett.... he was winning fights and all of a sudden boom, he just seemed to be off the wagon. This kind of explains that. I really hope the guy can get it back together. I really felt for him with what he went through specifically that last time when we all were here watching him deteroriate and come online drunk talking about it etc
