Dan Hornbuckle recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight against Pete Spratt this Friday at Legacy FC 17, walking away from MMA after he was released from Bellator and more. Check out the highlights:

On walking away from competition after he lost at Bellator 49: “I was like, ‘Screw it. I’m dedicating my time to my academy because I don’t half-ass anything.’…It was not the best time for me to be fighting.”

On being ready to fight: “That fire is back in training. It feels good to get those chills, like, ‘Damn, I’m ready to fight.'”

On planning to make the fight an exciting one: “Dry-humping isn’t the way to go.”

On avoiding the mistakes he made earlier in his career: “Legacy is bringing me in and letting me do my thing, and obviously, (welterweight champ) Jeff Rexroad has got a belt that I wouldn’t mind having. Not they’ve said, ‘Beat Spratt, and you’ll fight for a title.’ But I always like to keep my eye on the bigger prize. I always train for the next guy, but I always look at the bigger picture.”
