TUF 13 Results: Ed Herman’s 2010 Trials End with 2011 Win Over Tim Credeur


It was a long road back to the UFC for Ed Herman after injuries put him out for 2010, but a short trip once he hit the Octagon putting Tim Credeur away with a first round TKO.

Herman suffered a serious knee injury in his 2009 fight against Aaron Simpson, and it cost the former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ all of 2010 due to two surgeries to repair the damage.

During that time, Herman exited his former training camp at Team Quest in Oregon and relocated to Fort Collins, Colo. where he opened a gym of his own, but still had to go back to a day job to push through and support his family.

The hard work to come back paid off when he stepped back into the cage on Saturday night.

Herman was on the offensive from the minute the fight started, pressing forward with punches and pushing Credeur backwards. After grabbing his opponent’s head with his hand, Herman brought him down into an uppercut that clipped the nose, but a second uppercut connected flush with the jaw.

“I’ve been working my clinch a lot , that uppercut I’ve been hurting a lot of guys with it,” Herman commented about his handiwork. “It’s been my money punch.”

Herman certainly cashed in with it against Credeur. Following the uppercut, Credeur crashed to the mat and Herman followed up with a few more strikes and the fight was stopped.

More than a year away and with so many changes both personally and professional, Ed Herman’s win on Saturday night may not have had a title or a guaranteed bonus attached to it, but it will certainly go down as one of the biggest in his career.

“It’s unbelievable. To come out and win like that, it’s so awesome, I can’t describe it,” Herman said. “It’s so amazing.”

The win was Herman’s fifth in the UFC, and now that he’s healthy he’ll look forward to a much more active 2011.
