The Ultimate Fighter

Cramer went up against Jeremiah Riggs, which he won the fight via unanimous decision. Cramer didn't fight again until episode six. He then went up against the last pick Luke Zachrich. Cramer defeated Zachrich by TKO in the second round. Cramer would then go on to fight, Team Forrest's first pick, Tim Credeur. Cramer kept the fight close, until Tim got a hold of Cramer's foot. Cramer tried to stay standing while Tim was on the ground, holding on to his foot. Cramer eventually was taken down and submitted by an Ankle Lock. After the fight Cramer said that he just made a rookie mistake and he should have won the fight.
Cramer was set to make his debut at the The Ultimate Figher 7 Finale against former cast mate Cale Yarbrough. Cramer then came down with an injury, a broken collar bone, that forced him to withdraw from the fight.
Cramer returned to action after being released by the UFC, facing off against Ron Jackson at a C3 event. Cramer won by Decision (Unanimous).
