Ex-UFC fighter Tim Credeur surrenders following warrant on gun, drug charges

Posted:

Former UFC middleweight Tim Creduer today turned himself into authorities two weeks after a warrant was issued for his arrest on drug and firearms charges.

Credeur was taken into custody after he reported to the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center at 9:30 a.m. 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.

A rep for the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office said Credeur should be released today. Kip Judice, a captain with the Lafayette Parish Sherrif's Office, said the warrant stemmed from a police incident on April 16.

Credeur (12-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC), who runs the Gladiator's Academy out of Lafayette, came to prominence during his appearance on Season 7 of "The Ultimate Fighter." He made five appearances in the octagon following the reality show, but lost his most recent two fights.

Credeur hasn't fought since his a June 2011 setback at the TUF 13 Finale. He was knocked out by Ed Herman in 48 seconds.

As a coach, Credeur had a prominent role in the documentary "Fightville," which follows the early career of UFC featherweight standout Dustin Poirier.
