Verbal agreements are in for a middleweight bout between "Crazy" Tim Credeur vs. Brad Tavares at UFC 137, Dana White confirmed.
Credeur — Louisiana’s first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt — hit the public eye as a member of the TUF 7 house; Hawaiian Tavares was a season 11 standout.
Credeur returned after an 18-month layoff last month, but was TKO'd by Ed Herman in just 48 seconds. The 34-year-old hopes to turn things around against Tavares, the hard-hitting Hawaiian who suffered the first loss of his career at the hands of wrestler Aaron Simpson at UFC 132. The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary card.
