UFC Vet Fickett Added to HDNet Fights Lineup

UFC veteran Drew Fickett has been added to HDNet Fights’ October 13th event in Dallas. He will face Anthony Lapsley in a co-main event.

Fickett will enter the fight as the most experienced fighter on the entire card, compiling a 29-5 MMA record since turning pro in 1999. In his time with the UFC Fickett scored a number of wins but came up short against his toughest competition. After a debut loss to Nick Diaz at UFC 51, Fickett earned victories over Josh Neer at UFC Fight Night 1 and Josh Koscheck at UFC Fight Night 2. In his next bout he was submitted early in the third round by Josh Burkman at UFC Fight Night 3. He next defeated Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 61 before Karo Parisyan handed him his second UFC loss at UFC Fight Night 7. In his last fight he was victorious defeating Keita Nakamura at UFC Fight Night 9 in April of this year.

Following the win Fickett was called on to fill in for Jeff Joslin against Chris Lytle at UFC 73 but Fickett ultimately had to withdraw from the bout as well after suffering a knee injury.

His opponent, Anthony Lapsley, has a 10-2 MMA record and has just been pro for just over a year. He defeated Brent Weedman in his last fight, a United Fight League card in August.
