Running With Scissors' Fighters Beat Opponents with One-Two Punch!

Drew "The Master" Fickett and Hayley "The Hammer" Salazar Make POSTAL Producers Proud in the UFC and Rage In The Cage


October 5, 2005


Tucson, AZ Running With Scissors (RWS), developers of the POSTAL franchise and the self-proclaimed "world's most dangerous software company" have done it again, this time in the form of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

Super POSTAL fan Drew "The Master" Fickett knocked out UFC's reality TV show pretty boy Josh Koscheck this past Monday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Broadcast live to millions over SPIKE TV, Drew delivered a shocking, last minute victory over Koscheck, a first-tier wrestler who elevated his profile significantly following his performance in last season's UFC reality show, "The Ultimate Fighter." Koscheck dominated Fickett over the course of the first two rounds, keeping him pinned down, but the relentless Master never quit.

In true RWS fashion, Drew the underdog showed his teeth and suddenly, as the seconds ticked away in the third and final round, caught Koscheck clean in the head with his left knee. Josh dropped to the octagon mat face down and Fickett went for the kill, leaping onto Koscheck's undefended back and rendering him unconscious in seconds with a rear naked choke.

RWS's biased referee Vince Desi praised the Ultimate Fighting Championship promotion. "This organization is the real thing; other professional sports can learn from these guys. Another sport would never allow for such brutal honesty; no fix here, it was beautiful."

Not to be slandered as chauvinist pigs, the RWS guys showed their support on September 30th at a "Rage in the Cage" freestyle match in Phoenix, AZ. RWS' first sponsored female fighter, Hayley "The Hammer" Salazar stepped into the ring for her professional debut against Nicole Escobido. It soon became apparent that The Hammer had found an anvil in Escobido, who simply couldn't stand up under Salazar's relentless pounding and surrendered after the first round.

Hayley is hot like a Postal Babe but more dangerous than anyone in the POSTAL game. "She can kick everyone's butt at RWS," acknowledged the soft-spoken Desi. "RWS has always been known as an underdog developer, so we sponsor individuals like Drew and Hayley, just as they support their fans, with all the heart in the world."
