TUF alumni Ed Herman and Tim Credeur set for scrap at Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale

While the cast of TUF 13 competitors has yet to be revealed in any official capacity the line-up attached to the show’s season-ending live event on June 4 continues to take form with a handful of bouts already appearing to be in place. The trend continued over the weekend as word surfaced that Ultimate Fighter Season 3 finalist Ed Herman will see action at the event against popular TUF 7 alumnus Tim Credeur.

News of their pairing was initially reported by HeavyMMA and has since been all but confirmed by Credeur by way of his Twitter account.

“I am so excited I am vibrating,” Credeur playfully explained while referring to the forthcoming fracas.

The 33-year old Louisianan hasn’t fought due to injury since a “Fight of the Night” performance, albeit a loss, opposite Nate Quarry at Ultimate Fight Night 19 in September 2009. Prior to the defeat Credeur had won six consecutive bouts including a trio inside the Octagon.

The fiery Herman has also been out of the mix for more than a year after shredding his knee while in the midst of a match-up with Aaron Simpson at UFC 102, then essentially repeating the feat months later while training for a return to the ring. “Short Fuse” is 21-9 in his career with past wins over a number of respected opponents such as Scott Smith, Joe Doerksen, Nick Thompson, Glover Teixeira, and David Louiseau.

The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale is set to be headlined by a bout between top lightweight contenders Clay Guida and Anthony Pettis as well as home to TUF 12 champ Jonathan Brookins’ follow-up to his hard-fought decision win over fellow finalist Michael Johnson. Brookins will take on stand-up savvy Jeremy Stephens in main card conflict.
