I’d like to say this is a final post on the Drew Fickett / MFC debacle but it seems like whenever Drew is involved in anything, it takes 10 posts and 15 points of view before the whole story comes out. Just check out the whole Drew Fickett ‘incident’ at the ADCCs for proof of that.
So the latest chapter in this story is that MFC president Mark Pavelich has released a statement basically saying “I’m sorry that phone message went public. PS Drew Fickett is no longer fighting for us.” What I love so much about this is the catch 22 that was just created: Drew Fickett couldn’t fight for Strikeforce because he was fighting for MFC, but now he can’t fight for MFC even though he didn’t fight for Strikeforce.
On a personal basis, I can understand why Pavelich is pulling the plug on the fight now … Fickett blasted him, his promotion, and accused MFC’s ‘rising star’ Ryan Ford of being a roid freak cheater. On the other hand, I’m interested to see how he legally justifies ‘breach of contract’, especially after the contract wasn’t breached by Fickett fighting for Strikeforce.
I’m not gonna pick sides on this … personally, I think both sides acted like complete retards and there were 1001 ways to deal with the situation without Drew losing 20k from Strikeforce and 7k from MFC, or without Mark Pavelich looking like a psycho goon.
