UFC Junkie is reporting that Drew Fickett has been forced to pull out of his scheduled bout with Chris Lytle at UFC 73 because of an undisclosed injury. A second replacement opponent for Lytle has not yet been named.
Drew Fickett has been scratched from next weekend’s UFC 73 event and his opponent, Chris Lytle, is currently awaiting word on a replacement.
Lytle’s agent, Ken Pavia, confirmed the news to UFC Junkie early this morning.
Fickett was actually a replacement for Canadian Jeff Joslin, who was scratched from the event last month because of an injury.
The nature and extent of Fickett’s injury is not yet known.
