A rumored middleweight bout between Tim Credeur and Nate Loughran is now set for UFC Fight Night 16: “UFC Fights for the Troops” on Dec. 10, sources close to the fighters have revealed exclusively to FiveOuncesOfPain.com.
UFN 16, which is scheduled to emanate from Fayetteville, North Carolina, is also expected to feature bouts between welterweights Mike Swick and Jonathan Goulet as well as former WEC light heavyweights Brian Stann and Steve Cantwell.
Credeur is a veteran from the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and made his official UFC debut during UFC Fight Night 13 in Las Vegas on July 19. Facing fellow cast member Cale Yarbrough, Credeur won via TKO due to punches at 1:54 of round 1.
Loughran made his debut on the same card and improved his record to 9-0 following a first round submission against Johnny Rees. The win was Loughran’s eight career submission and not only preserved his perfect record but also kept alive his streak of having finished all of his opponents inside the distance.
