The 42 year old Pete Spratt announced his retirement after his Legacy FC 23 bout with Tim Means last Friday. However, after reviewing his loss this past weekend, he’s decided he isn’t satisfied with that conclusion.

Spratt stated that he plans to appeal his loss to Means. After reviewing the footage, he believes he was knocked out by an illegal strike to the back of the head, and wants the match to be ruled a No Contest.

“I’m going to file an appeal with the commission to have them review the fight to see whether they deemed that I was fouled or not,” he said in an interview with MMA Junkie. “I’m willing to accept whatever the commission decides, but I definitely want them to look at it because over the course of the past few days, I had people calling me and texting me saying that was an illegal shot. It’s borderline foul, borderline no foul. But I’ll let the commission determine that, and I’ll live with whatever they say.”

He hopes to have a rematch with Means next December, when Legacy FC plans to return to San Antonio.

Spratt has been competing in MMA for over 14 years, including an appearance on the fourth season of The Ultimate Fighter. He holds an overall 25-23 record.
