    TORONTO - The Maximum Fighting Championship has released American lightweight Drew (Night Rider) Fickett, citing two straight losses. In his return to MFC, Fickett (41-15) lost by first-round TKO to Brian (The Bandit) Cobb in June at MFC 30. He suffered another first-round TKO at the hands of Tatsuya Kawajiri earlier this month. "Drew had the consent of the MFC to fight in Japan, but he and his management were expressly told that if he lost badly again he would be released, and therefore Drew has been released," MFC president Mark Pavelich said in a statement. "I will not have guys coming and going from the MFC and thinking what they do in other organizations wont have an effect on where they stand in the Maximum Fighting Championship. I have a lot of respect for Drew especially in the way he turned his life around and I wish him the best of luck in his future." Fickett, who was scheduled to fight at MFC 31, quit drinking and rededicated himself to training after a rocky patch that included a public spat with Pavelich in 2008. Pavelich was irate that Fickett planned to appear on a June 2008 Strikeforce card as a late injury replacement. Fickett was due to compete in the MFC at the time and his contract stated he could not fight for anyone else within five weeks of his MFC bout. The two made up publicly and Fickett submitted Matt Veach in just 36 seconds in February at MFC 28. Blue Wesley Woodyard Game Youth Jersey. -- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will have minor shoulder surgery soon to address a nagging injury he played with last season. Blue Bishop Sankey Elite Mens Jersey. Play hard, play tough and play rough. The philosophy has been a lesson in frustration for opponents. http://www.shopjerseystitans.com/33-light-blue-michael-griffin-elite-home-jersey-nike-nfl-tennessee-titans-women-s-nike228355.html. The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks. White Dexter McCluster Game Youth Jersey. They did take one chance on a free agent-to-be however, and it didnt pay off. Rory Kohlert, selected by the Redblacks in the expansion draft from Winnipeg, has signed as a free agent with the Blue Bombers. White Ropati Pitoitua Game Jersey Womens. -- Vincent Viola grew up in Brooklyn, graduated from West Point, is a former chairman of the New York Mercantile Exchange and after the Sept.For most of the first period the Jets played the Blackhawks shot for shot, earned a couple of power plays but failed to score.  Then they saw the high powered Blackhawks offence connect for two goals in the final three minutes for a 2-0 lead. Chicago came into the game scoring 26 times in their previous six games. When these teams met at MTS Centre Saturday, the Jets kept Jonathan Toews off the score sheet snapping his five game point streak. After going pointless against Calgary on Sunday, Toews opened the scoring in this game slipping a back hand shot through the pads of Al Montoya at 17:29. It was his eighth of the year. With the first period coming to an end, Patrick Kane (9th) was allowed to close in on Montoya and fired one inside the far post to make it 2-0. The goal came at 19:54. Chicago outshot the Jets 12-11 in the opening period and going 0-2 on the power play again makes special teams a big part of the game. The Blackhawks welcomed Mikael Frolik back to Chicago during a commercial break in the first period. Frolik was part of the Stanley Cup winning team last spring, and received a standing ovation. Frolik acknowledged the crowd with a wave from the bench. Evander Kane took the pre-game skate but did not dress. Kane declared himself ready after the morning skate but Coach Claude Noel elected to give his injury a little more time to heal. For Montoya, it was his second straight start. He grew up in Chicago and said Tuesday he would very much enjoy playing in his home town. If not for some great saves by Montoya, and the Blackhawks Patrick Sharp finding iron on two chances, the second period could have been a complete disaster. As it was the Jets gave up another late goal as 40 minutes ended 3-0 Chicago. The Jets were badly outshot in the first 15 minutes of the period, many of the Blackhawks chances coming on the two power plays they had. After the second successful penalty kill, the Jets did create some chances and seemed to be gaining momentum until Brandon Pirri got in behind the Jets defence, went in alone and wired a shot just under the cross bar for the 3-0 lead. Hawks outshot the Jets 11-7 in the middle frame. Early in the third the Jets again created some chances but a turnover in their own zone, ended with Patrick Sharps fourth of the year making it a 4-0 game.dddddddddddd. Coach Noel reunited Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler in the third and also changed up two of his defence pairings, Keaton Ellerby with Dustin Byfuglien and Grant Clitsome with Adam Pardy. Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian remained together.  The Jets got on the scoreboard with Devin Setoguchi snapping a 13 game goalless stretch with his third of the year. Byfuglien picked up his team leading 10th assist on the play, while initially it appeared as though Ellerby had picked up his first point, they reviewed the goal and it showed an Olli Jokinen tip before it got to Setoguchi. Hawks outshot the Jets 28-25. Post-game Coach Noel further addressed the Kane situation saying decisions made are based on what is best for the player. "Players always want to play. Its up to us to look out for the welfare of the player." As for Kane playing Friday, "Well assess tomorrow, talk to the training staff and go from there." As for the game, Coach Noel showed concern as some of the mistakes made "were the same mistakes we made against them Saturday. You shoot yourself in the foot and its in your net. They are a team that can finish. Theyve scored nine on us in two games." After the win against the Detroit Red Wings, the Jets were again unable to win back to back games. They have not won two in a row since the start of the NHL season. Again the Jets did some good things but turnovers and mental mistakes against Chicago are costly. How would a power play goal in the first period have changed the game? The Jets recorded 34 hits to Chicagos 16, Eric Tangradi with five, Blake Wheeler with four. Mark Scheifele was the Jets best face off man at 50%. Tangradi and Byfuglien each had four shots on goal and at 26:20 Byfuglien lead in ice time. Not dressed for the Jets in this game, Paul Postma, Mark Stuart, Jacob Trouba, Evander Kane, Jim Slater and Zach Redmond. There will be two home games for the Jets this weekend, Nashville in Winnipeg Friday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) and San Jose Sunday. (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). ' ' '
