It's been over two years since Tim Credeur's last UFC fight. The BJJ black belt was knocked out by Ed Herman in June 2011 at the TUF 13 Finale in Las Vegas. His name has resurfaced in the MMA world, but unfortunately it is not in a positive light. The Louisiana native turned himself in at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center in his home state. MMA Junkie has more details:
He later posted two bonds totaling $5,500 on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession and possession of a firearm in the presence of a Schedule I narcotic.
Lafayette police issued a warrant for Credeur's arrest on May 29.
Kip Judice, a captain with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the warrant stemmed from a police incident on April 16.
Credeur (12-4), who is listed as Louisiana's first and (so far) only BJJ black belt, made his way into the UFC as a semifinalist on season 7 of The Ultimate Fighter. All of his wins on the show came by submission, but he lost first to Jesse Taylor in the semifinals and later C.B. Dollaway after Taylor was yanked from his spot in the finale. Credeut won his first 3 UFC fights before losing an entertaining striking battle with Nate Quarry and then suffering a quick KO at the hands of Herman.
The article also states that Credeur is expected to be released from the correctional center today
