Pete Spratt Is Looking For Respect

When it comes to the sport of mixed martial arts, Pete Spratt has seen and done it all.

He has fought on the biggest stage, the UFC, for several years and picked up wins over the likes of current Elite XC Middleweight champ, Robbie Lawler, along the way. Spratt was even a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 4: The Comeback and while he would have liked to have advanced further within the competition it did give Spratt the opportunity to re-enter the UFC after a two-year hiatus.

Today, Spratt is one of the top free agents in MMA and can be seen fighting for HDNet Fights. He avenged a loss to TJ Waldburger on HDNet’s inaugural show and will now face Tristan Yunker (12-6) on December 15 at HDNet Fights: Reckless Abandon.

I spoke to Spratt earlier today about his experiences with HDNet Fights, his upcoming bout against Yunker and if he is looking to get back in the UFC anytime soon. He certainly had some interesting things to say about how much fighters are earning nowadays.
