Pete THE SECRET WEAPON Spratt travels to Canada next week to take on Ryan Ford on “HDNet Fights Presents: Maximum Fighting Championship: Rags to Riches”
Spratt, known for his vicious knockouts – enters the contest after two consecutive wins. The most recent was a TKO of Tristan Yunker at “HDNet Fights: Reckless Abandon”, and prior to that was a KO of TJ Waldburger at “HDNet Fights: Initiation Night”
“I fully expect to rip him a new one,” Spratt said. “I want to finish his career before it starts.”
The UFC veteran said he’s been training hard for this event – and since Ford is new to MMA, he doesn’t have an established style so, Spratt doesn’t know what to expect. In addition, returning to Canada doesn’t bring pleasant memories for Spratt. On previous trips, he’s been bogged down with paperwork, and experienced visa and border entry troubles. Not to mention, a loss to UFC Interim Welterweight Champion George St. Pierre in November 2003 in Canada.
Spratt said there is no comparison between his bout with St. Pierre and his upcoming match.
“George St. Pierre was good,” he said. “Ryan Ford ain’t no good.”
Ford carries an unblemished record into the ring. He most recently fought at MFC 14 where he finished off Mike Sorenson via TKO in the first minute of the second round. Spratt has fought some of the best in the welterweight ranks during his eight-year career and has beaten such notables as Robbie Lawler and Rich Clementi. A devastating striker, Spratt was part of the cast of The Ultimate Fighter Season 4 – The Comeback and twice fought for Mark Cuban’s HDNet Fights in 2007.
The bout will headline the “HDNet Fights Presents: Maximum Fighting Championship: Rags to Riches” event and will be broadcast LIVE Friday, February 22nd on HDNet. DON’T MISS OUT!!!
