Pete Spratt called off his retirement less than a week after making the announcement.
“That was a retirement thing based on a guy who got hit in the back of the head, that was still groggy thinking about his family and that type of stuff, without having had the opportunity to review what actually happened in the fight,” said the Spratt to MMA Fighting. “If I looked back at it and my skills had diminished, that would be different. But that wasn’t the case.”
The 42-year old was stopped early by Tim Means with elbows at Legacy FC 23 on September 13. Post-fight, he told the crowd “you’ve probably seen the last of Pete Spratt.”
Spratt is 25-23 and dropped both fights this year. He’s fought out of the UFC, Strikeforce and MFC.
The win made Means 19-5 and it was his return since the July release from the UFC.
