Sources close to both camps have confirmed that a middleweight bout between Tom Lawlor and Tim Credeur has been agreed upon for May 8th, in Montreal, Canada. The event, UFC 113, is rumored to be headlined by a rematch between Lyoto Machida and Maurico Rua for the UFC lightheavyweight title.

This had FOTN written all over it, it is a toss up, I got no clue who takes it. I want to Credeur, but I could see Lawlor winning as well.

Based on his MUCH improved striking that I saw against Aaron Simpson and his good wrestling, I think He will destroy Tim

Scrap! War!

I think tommy takes it because he is probably stronger and can get takedowns if he needs too, but you cant count out timmy's submissions.

Tom Lawlor has almost as good BJJ, crisper standup and hes a lot bigger and stronger than Tim Credeur. I see him overwhelming Credeur

I got Filthy Tom by UD.

Just look at Credeur/Quarry.. Quarry droppin bomb after bomb on the dude and couldnt knock him out.. Filthy Tom looks much better and almost beat Simpson. Gotta choose him even tho I like Crazy Tim.

Really like both guys. Don't want either one to lose but I'm thinking Lawlor will take down Credeur and pull out a UD. Looking forward to the fight.

After Tim's last fight with Quarry I said something along the lines of "it's going to have to be a lumberjack of a man's man" in order for me to pick against him. That's how tough I think Tim is.....could Lawlor grind out a UD...sure, but he could also get subbed for all his ground work, and there is no way he'll KO Tim. Hard pick...FOTN most possible!

i'm gonna have to agree, this is gonan be awesome but i think tim has enough experience and heart to pull off the victory, if not by submission, a close decision.

Lawlor is a beast, Credeur is a good fighter and keeps a good pace, but at times his chin is way up in the air. I'd think if Lawlor doesn't KO/TKO him, he'll win a decision.
