Tim Credeur And Ed Herman Expected To Square Off At TUF 13 Finale

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.

MMAWeekly.com sources on Saturday confirmed that the fight has been verbally agreed to. It was first reported by Heavy.com.

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.
