Former UFC Middleweight Drew McFedries left the promotion after a UFC 103 submission loss. After receiving his walking papers, he went on a two fight win streak, with his last bout a second round knock out at ProElite 1. Although he hasn't appeared in a professional fight since August 2011, McFedries found himself in a physical altercation Saturday night while bouncing for a local nightclub.
Fighter's Only has the story:
Calvin Hammock, 42, walked away from the Chorus Line Nightclub on North Brady Street in Davenport just before midnight. But he attempted to regain entry and was intercepted by McFedries.
According to witnesses, McFedries went forward and got into a grappling situation with Hammock after the latter made threats to another doorman. McFedries pinned the man to the wall but didn’t realise he had a knife in his pocket.
Hammock allegedly drew the knife and reached around McFedries' back, inflicting stab wounds to the upper shoulder. He was then pacified by the door team before police arrived shortly afterwards to take Hammock into custody.
McFedries' wounds are minor and he is recuperating and expected to make a full recovery. Hammock is facing charges of ‘going armed with intent’ and ‘causing willful injury’.
According to FO, Hammock is well known to authorities in the area. He currently has a pending lawsuit levied against the Davenport Police department for being "molested in a sexual manner" by officers during a 2010 arrest search. The charges he's facing from allegedly stabbing McFedries carry a prison sentence of up to 5 years for each offense.
