Tim Credeur and Ed Herman are expected to make their returns to the Octagon as part of “The Ultimate Fighter Season 13″ finale on June 4 at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
The TUF 13 finale will be the first bout in nearly two years for both fighters.
Credeur (12-3) last fought in a loss to Nate Quarry at UFC Fight Night 19 in September of 2009. That loss knocked him off of a six-fight winning streak. He has since been scheduled to return to the Octagon on several occasions, but has been derailed due to various injuries.
Herman (19-7) hasn’t competed since August 2009, when he lost by TKO due to a knee injury inflicted by Aaron Simpson. The loss was Herman’s third in his four most recent attempts. He is in strong need of a win over Credeur if he is to resurrect his UFC career. He is 4-5 overall in the Octagon.
In addition to the TUF 13 finals, a lightweight showdown between former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and fellow UFC title contender Clay Guida will highlight the fight card.
