UFC 137 Fight Card Keeps Growing, Adds Tim Credeur vs. Brad Tavares

A middleweight bout pitting Tim Credeur against Brad Tavares at UFC 137: St-Pierre vs. Diaz in Las Vegas has been verbally agreed to, according to UFC president Dana White.

Tavares (7-1) is coming off of the first loss of his career. He dropped a unanimous decision to Aaron Simpson at UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber on July 2. He made his way into the UFC via TUF 11, the season that featured Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz as coaches.

Credeur (12-4) has spent the past three years of his career in the UFC, but may be on the bubble coming off of back-to-back losses in his last two outings. He lost a decision to Nate Quarry in 2009 then spent the next couple years on and off the injured list before being TKO’d by Ed Herman at the TUF 13 Finale.

Georges St-Pierre defends his welterweight title against Nick Diaz in the UFC 137 main event on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas.
