Amir's going to end up in the UFC either way. Even if he loses to CB in the finals they'll have to keep him around for the rubber match.

"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."

I have absolute confidence that Amir will get a contract either way. Maybe not the TUF winner contract, but he'll get something.

Although, it would be awesome to have the TUF winner have a record of 1-0

He wasnt screwed at all. He was lucky to be offered another chance to make it to the final. He got his ass kicked by Jesse alot worse than CB did. I really doubt he was mad that they didnt just give him a spot in the finals cause he didnt deserve it anymore than CB did. I think making them fight for it was the perfect way to solve the matter.

Jesse Taylor should have never been kicked off for Tim to have the opportunity, that's what it all coems down too.

I though Dana made a good choice. They both loss, so it was like they played double elimination with it, and they had to fight each other. I don't see what the problem is.

If Dana had givin Credeur the opportunity to fight Amir, this fight would have been cancelled by the NSAC.

The season finale of "The Ultimate Fighter 7" was one fight shy Saturday, after Timothy Credeur produced a positive test administered Friday for the prescription medication Adderall. A semifinalist on the Spike TV series, Credeur was to have met Cale Yarbrough in a middleweight bout on the undercard inside The Pearl at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas.

Credeur, 30, informed the Nevada State Athletic Commission he had stopped taking the prescription drug a few days earlier on his pre-fight medical form distributed during Friday's weigh-in. All combatants are required to disclose any over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs they have taken within 15 days of their bout. Credeur agreed to take a urinalysis test of his own admission.

"We were able to find a lab that was still open late Friday and got the results this morning. Unfortunately, they were positive," said NSAC Executive Director Kizer.

Adderall is commonly prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Kizer said Adderall's "cardio-vascular restrictions," which include increased blood pressure and cardiac episodes, place it on the state's non-approved substance list.

Commission members deliberated the news Saturday morning, then informed Kizer that Credeur would not be granted licensure to fight that afternoon. Kizer informed Zuffa at the venue that the bout would be scratched. Credeur was informed at the venue as well.

Since Credeur did not compete, Kizer said he would not be suspended or fined. The Louisianan would be eligible to fight in Nevada as early as next month, said Kizer, granted the substance is no longer in his system.

To Kizer's knowledge, both Credeur and Yarbrough were paid their show purses for the cancelled bout.
Not saying its Creduers fault. Its a prescribtion he needs to take. But like I said the Amir/Creduer fight would have been cancelled and considering this was an Ultimate Fighter Fight Night that would have been disasterious.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I get Fedor's point. Can't say i have any complaints with how it went though, well apart from thinking JT was royally screwed. I just think for Creuder to be put through would have been seen, and rightly so imo, as a freebie.

He still got a second chance, got beat, can have no complaints.
