Tim Credeur vs Cale Yarbrough TUF 7 Finale fight official

credeur vs yarbrough the ultimate fighter 7 finale
It’s a battle of former Team Forrest members when Tim Credeur (9-2) and Cale Yarbrough (0-0) collide at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale at The Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, Nevada, this Saturday, June 21.

Credeur lost his initial semifinal bid to punch his ticket to the final fight against Amir Sadollah when he was defeated by Jesse Taylor in the final four. However, Taylor was kicked off the show shortly after it wrapped, creating another opportunity for Credeur to challenge for the six-figure contract.

He locked horns with the other eliminated semifinalist, CB Dollaway, in an eliminator match. But things did not go Credeur’s way – he lost via unanimous decision in a very close battle.

Yarbrough defeated John Clarke via technical knockout and Patrick Shultz via unanimous decision before getting pounded out by Dollaway in the quarterfinals.

He must have done something right because he was among the few of the 16 fighters asked to compete in the Finale. In fact, only half of the contestants earned the right to make their official Octagon debuts this weekend on the Spike TV special that begins at 9 p.m. ET.

The fight between Credeur and Yarbrough, however, has been relegated to the under card and there's no guarantee that it will make the broadcast.
