Round 1: Credeur and Herman touch 'em up and we get started. Herman with a nice outside leg kick. Credeur answers with a pair of jabs. Herman gets inside and drops him with a right uppercut. Credeur goes down, and Herman pounces with a right-left-right on the ground before Herb Dean can shut it down. Quick work for Herman in his return after nearly two years, and a tough return for Credeur, also coming back after a long layoff.
Result: Ed Herman def. Tim Credeur, TKO, 0:48 Round 1
