Sad Knockout of the Day: Justin Gaethje Only Needs Twelve Seconds to Destroy Drew Fickett


When we last checked in on Drew Fickett, he had moved from Arizona to Florida to enter a rehabilitation facility, and celebrated his forty-two days of sobriety with a knockout loss to Jonatas Novaes at ShoFIGHT 20. Not to add insult to injury, but Fickett said before the fight that he was in very real danger danger of becoming homeless if he didn’t receive his win bonus as well. I wish I was here today to tell you that things have gotten better for him, but that’s not exactly the case.

Fickett met up with undefeated Grudge Training Center prospect Justin Gaethje at last weekend’s Rage in the Cage 163. I’d describe the fight for you, but that’d be a waste of time. Let’s just say that Gaethje is still undefeated, Fickett is now 1-6 in his last seven fights – with his last four losses all coming in under one minute - and I’m only writing about this fight because I have lost control of my life.

Fight starts at the 4:30 mark.

In less depressing news, Gaethje wants to fight two more times before the end of the year. After such a quick knockout, I can’t say I blame him for being so optimistic. So at least we’re ending on a high note…right?

Why is the guy from MythBusters refereeing the fight?

Justin just fought a month before this fight...two more in the next two months would be one hell of a way to end the year...4 fights in 4 months.

Guys, keep an eye out for Justin. He grew up about an hour from where I live and I know the family well. Tough, hard working kid...getting better with every fight.

Hard to feel sorry for someone who insists against all evidence that he should be a cagefighter when he obviously should be doing something else, like stocking shelves for a living (not that there's anything wrong with that - it's honest work and in this economy (or any) you do what you need to for yourself and your family).

That looked like as much of a dive as anything else accused of being a dive around here. Kimbo's last fight was more convincing.

Why is there 5 minutes of ads for a 12 second fight?
