I just went to check up on how he was doing lately and saw he has been very active. In a little over a year Drew lost 6 fights via TKO/KO (2 were submissions via strikes).

Listen I know it isn't appropriate for fans to dictate what a fighter chooses to do, but what about the people around Fickett?

I only care because I'm a big fan of the guy. It's terrible to see someone receive this sort of head trauma in order to make a living.

Life isn't fair, I know. I know Drew is probably far more qualified to train people than most gym owner's out there. I would hope to see him get the chance to do that (if he wants it).

Fickett's case is very weird. I think his issues at this point are almost entirely mental. For a while there, a few years ago, he was on a long losing streak and then he put together a decent streak of wins over good fighters and I thought he had pulled it together. After beating Veach, he went back onto a string of very quick losses... I just don't understand it Phone Post

Wasn't he drinking a ton for a while there? I the MFC or something was pushing real hard as some redemption story before he fought Brian Cobb.

Back in 2010 it seemed like he was going to be a serious fighter again. That lasted for all of a year.
