We’ve seen fighters decline tremendously in recent years, but the bottom has really fallen out of Drew Fickett’s FightMatrix rating. Below, you’ll find a graph of how Fickett’s rating hit an all-time high in early 2008, and has since dropped into journeyman status. On January 30th, Fickett was knocked out by Ferrid Kheder to cap off a 1-3 record in his last four fights.
What makes this drop even worse, is that these values were not time adjusted. With FightMatrix ratings, the value of a point has gotten increasingly lower through time as competition thickens.
