Could Drew Fickett Be A Force In The WW Division?

Okay, I don't think I was the only one who thought Drew Fickett didn't stand a chance in this fight! I seen a lot of people on this forum betting some serious points for Karo! But he definitly gave Karo a run for his money!

So if Drew were to work on his stand-up and his ground game a little more, could Fickett be a force in the welterweight division?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

No.

He's been around a lot longer than guys like Swick, Forrest, and Koscheck (Kos lost, but showed he was the better fighter) but they've all well surpassed him in terms of skill. Personally, I get the feeling that Fickett is satisfied with where he is right now.

hes got non decision wins over kos and neer, took karo to a decision. I have a feeling for a fighter who doesent take things all that seriously "the master" is very satisfied.

While I think Drew did an "ok" job in his fight agianst Karo, I don't think he is well rounded enough to go anywhere in the division. I see him spinning his wheels. One lose here, a win there...back and forth. The reason I say this was because Karo's performance was very spotty. In the first round Karo's stand up was questionable. He threw a lot of sloppy hooks and crosses (throughout the fight his jabs were pretty decent). The beginning and middle of round two was all Karo. He started off with a big take down and followed up with over a minute of G&P. His stand-up looked better during the beginning and middle of that round as well; landing some big strikes on Drew.


Drew did have a couple moments like when he had Karo on his back and was working his G&P, but it came to-little to-late for it to matter in the round.

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

I thought Fickett showed a helluva a lot of guts and heart...yeah he took a beating but he didn't just stand there, he fought back the whole time and made Karo work for it. It also looked like he had Karo in trouble a few times in the second round and it could have very easily gone the other way. Karo certainly knew he'd been in fight afterwards that's for sure.

I think Fickett has the potential...somethings you cant train into a fighter and he's got it.

Fickett has made some real improvements. I was surprised with his performance to be honest. He's not champ material but he could beat alot of stand-up guys.

No.
have him drop to 155... the WW division is stacked with too much talent for Fickett to be on the radar.
