Drew Fickett, Ryan Jimmo dominate MFC 28 match-ups

A pair of win streaks continued Friday night in the Great White North as Drew Fickett and Ryan Jimmo both cruised to victory in their respective bouts at “MFC 28: Supremacy”. The performances marked Fickett’s fifth and Jimmo’s fourteenth consecutive victories though both finishes were as different as could be.

Fickett tapped HIT Squad member Matt Veach less than a minute into the opening round after being taken down, then working his rubber guard into position for a fight-ending Armbar. The showing marked the thirtieth submission victory Fickett’s career and his 41st overall with past success against a number of notable adversaries including Kurt Pellegrino, Josh Neer, and Josh Koscheck. It was his first fight since winning a trio of bouts on a single night under the Shine Fights banner this past September.

On the other end of the spectrum, Jimmo battered opponent Dwayne Lewis in their light heavyweight title-fight to the point ringside officials were forced to stop things after Lewis’ orbital bone was broken to the point a mouse looking more like a NYC sewer rat had formed around his eye. The championship-winning stoppage came a little more than midway through the third round and continued an impressive run for the Canadian who hasn’t lost since his professional debut more than four years ago.

Here is a complete listing of MFC 28 results:

Brendan Kornberger def. Paapa Inkumsah via Unanimous Decision

    Ok. What the hell happened to Drew Fickett? Before 2010, he had gone 2-8 in his last 10 fights and had been (T)KO’d in 4 of his last 5. Then he gets Derrick Noble, arguably his toughest fighter in years, get’s rocked, locks on a sub and then gets the victory with the help of some questionable reffing. This lands him in the Shine LW grandprix where he goes on to beat Crazyhorse, undefeated Dennis Bermudez, and Carlo Prater all in the first round, all by submission, and all in one night. Then he goes on to tap the always tough, always game Matt Veach in 38 seconds.
    Fickett was written off by everybody not related to him before last April and now he’s ridding a 5 fight win streak over his toughest competition since his UFC run in ’05-06. I don’t know what happened to him or what he change up last year, but whatever it was it’s working.

    For fans who like blood/guts I suggest you find a picture of Lewis’ eye. Looked like his face was ready to give birth. Josh Koscheck would’ve even said DAYUM, SON!! Will definitely make this year’s Halloween special.
