Gerald Harris’s ‘TUF 7′ Blog: Episode 10

(Tim Credeur puts away the pretty-boy.)

Every Thursday morning, Team Rampage member Gerald Harris blogs his reactions to each new episode of The Ultimate Fighter 7 on Here’s what he had to say about last night’s ep, in which Jeremy May tried to stir up some more shit, and Tim Credeur and CB Dollaway battled their way into the semis.


Well, I have to say that this was my favorite episode. There was a lot of *bleeping* going on tonight so let me translate for you. Our evening started off with the usual Jeremy May bashing, especially when we weren’t at the house. I was a little shocked at how much people talked behind each other’s backs; it sounded like Americas Next Top Model at times. (I don’t watch that show, but I saw an episode or two…) Anyway, when Jeremy walked in and heard JT he told me his bright idea to get JT kicked out of the house. I had no idea he was going to call him a “Jewish bitch”! Now, that’s not a smooth move — imagine if someone called me the “N-word” or a “Black bitch.” JT was offended and flipped out, but I quickly sat him down and told him to think about his son. You’re in the semi’s man, don’t let anyone stop you from achieving your goal. Things cooled down, but I did laugh when he called Jeremy a broke-nosed bitch!

Now to the semi match ups — Creduer vs. Cramer and CB vs. Yarbrough. I was a little thrown off at Tim’s constant compliments about Cramer. Every time he speaks of him he says that “Cramer is hot,” “Cramer is a heart throb,” or something in that manner. I know that we were locked up for a minute, but I wasn’t thinking about Cramer, I was trying to get a peek at the ring girls or any woman driving on the highway as we went to practice. I don’t want to seem like I’m hating on Tim, but I did want to fight him extremely bad. The first time we spoke I told him that I was going to miss my kids and he says “yeah, I know how you feel — I got two dogs at home.” Then after his victory he randomly walked up to me and a couple other guys that lost. He calmly explained to us how he has $20,000 and how he has the ability to be losing a fight but win, and how we were winning our fights and lost.

Before I go any further I have to say that I respect the hell out of Tim as a fighter, but not a person. He’s a black belt, has 12 years of experience, and he’s in the damn semi’s. So, don’t take me wrong — I just want to slam him on his neck one day. Cramer’s best shot was to slug it out with Tim, but once it hit the ground it was closed curtains. Tim kept his composure, weathered the storm, and pulled a smart move. You can’t knock a man for winning, because that’s all that matters.

I’m still a little pissed about the CB vs Yarbrough fight. It was obvious that CB is a tough dude and a top fighter in the house, but I feel like Cale didn’t even try. Cale is very athletic and hits hard as hell, but he folded in the fight. CB just beat on him like he was his big brother. Once again I’m in the humble position to congratulate him for being in the quarterfinals, but he did not fight and that’s what upset me the most. There are a large number of fighters that would love to be in his position and he just gave it away. After he took that first body kick, I saw the fear in his face and he just didn’t fight. Then when Herb Dean stopped it, he looked like he was happy that it was over. I didn’t expect him to throw a tantrum like me, but he just knew he was gonna lose.

The semi-final meeting was funny, because Rampage didn’t make it and no one wanted to fight CB. I don’t even think Jesse wanted to, because he called out Amir in the meeting. Judging from our fight he probably assumed that he could take Amir down as well. In the end I like the semi-final match ups, so when you tune in next week you’re in for some great action.

Are you insinuating that Tim might be trying to come out of the closet. Sure seems like it. Everytime the camera is on him, he is talking about how hot Cramer is. What's up with that? What do you think his wife thinks about all of this. She might ditch Tim after all of his drooling and end up with Cramer!! LOL
what show were u watching- June 5, 2008 at 4:21 pm
If YOU watch the show again, he DID say CB in the meeting. Then said whoever, then was wrangled into picking who he thought would be his easiest match, which was when he said Amir. And I guess Gerald & a few others slept through the part where Forrest was talking to his guys & asked who wanted to fight CB. You know, when the guy who "didn't want to fight him" immediately said "I WILL".

Jeez. I can't stand all these recaps that are so ridiculously biased. It's like watching Fox News explain what's going on w/ the presidential campaign.

And while I can understand having a beef w/ someone over what was probably a huge misunderstanding, I find it a little odd that Gerald's most hated enemy is Tim & that he seems to get along fine w/ the most obvious ass on the show (Jeremy). Oh, he didn't think the "Jewish bitch" comment was a "smooth move", but it's Tim he wants to drop on his neck. Wow. Mike Dolce is so complimentary about his good buddy Gerald that I had taken his word for it that Gerald wasn't just a punk. Huh.

If you watch the show again, he never said CB in the meeting. He was like whoever - Tim was a bitch and never spoke up in the meeting or when they talked in the room after the fight

Jesse is a big strong dumb bastard. That being said, Dana wants CB and Jesse in the finals together, hence the match-ups chosen for the semi's. It wouldn't make much sense to put the two best guys (or the two that appear to be the best) against each other now. On a personal note I hope Jesse hammer fists CB's fuckhole into pieces, ala Riddle vs. Simmler.

"I don’t even think Jesse wanted to, because he called out Amir in the meeting"

This statement is completely false, jesse clearly said he wants to fight the best(CB). He was practically forced to say who his easiest match up was, and he said amir.
Patrick- June 4, 2008 at 8:21 pm
I will be absolutely ecstatic if Amir beats CB.
Best. Upset. Ever.

I was surprised when CB admitted that "Amir is probably the most dangerous fight for me".
AND YES! I have noticed that every damn time the camera is pointed at Tim he's talking about how "hot" Kramer looks.

Nobody has thought about Jesse power in the stand up. He is a big guy and could catch CB right in the cunt and Knock him out. Jeremy May is a huge goof trying to get Jesse kicked off. Its not like he would be the guy to replace him.
The Survivalist- June 4, 2008 at 4:58 pm
I hope Amir takes the whole show!

Jeremy May is a GOOF.

Your banging some NASTY broads if their cunt looks like CB's mouth! WTF?

Tim might be trying to get on Rich Franklins camp... he really digs those pink and brown shorts!

Doph, cw, ksgbobo, I think EVERYONE had the same problem. I live in Ohio and it did the same thing, except it showed some shitty ass local car lot commercial. Anyway, I think the guy who is in charge of determining when to cut to commercial was just fucking asleep and forgot to pause the tape of the actual show while he turned on the local commercial.

Pretty queerish.
Doph- June 4, 2008 at 4:26 pm
If JT loses to Tim can't we hope for a JT/May fight on the card for the finale? Wishful thinking. I'm not in Canada and my TV went to ads after CB and Cale touched gloves too, coming back at 3:45 to catch the end of the beating.
zing- June 4, 2008 at 3:08 pm
GHH, I got a laugh out of your comment about trying to get a look at the ring girls etc, after 5 weeks in the house with a bunch of guys, because I can totally see me being the same way. I seriously laughed out loud at the tv when I saw Matt Brown calling out to Arianny to "call me".
ksgbobo- June 4, 2008 at 2:51 pm
Thanks for the post Gerald, always enjoy them.
cw, samething happened with me, except I live in Florida and it happened to me.
cw- June 4, 2008 at 2:45 pm
Whoever substitutes Canadian ads over the American ones on the Canadian Spike TV broadcasts is a jackass. In the CB/Cale fight we saw the fighters touch gloves, then it cuts to 1:15 minutes of ads for Rogers Telecomm cellphones then back to the fight at the 3:45 mark just as CB is about to start wrapping it up. I don't even know who to complain to - I googled it and I can't figure out who dubs over the ads...

Im gonna say Tim vs. CB for the finals. I think Amir has a decent chance for an upset if he can stay on his feet but I just dont see CB getting stuffed on takedowns. Tim vs. Jesse is a tough pick for me but I think Tim is a slicker submission specialist than Dante and therefore wont be shut down by Jesse's corner screaming every sub attempt he tries. I think if Tim can pull a "bait and switch" type of submission then he will come out the winner.
Sam- June 4, 2008 at 2:30 pm
What an odd bunch of insults Sebas. Let's see if I can replicate.

I hope Jeremy May gets gangreen and then Dante Rivera periods in his mouth.
Sebas- June 4, 2008 at 2:03 pm
CB is a cunt. His mouth looks like a vagina. I hope someone puts a rubber fist trought that bitch
mma18- June 4, 2008 at 1:45 pm
I reall don't know how long Credeur's "get my ass kicked and pray for a submission tactic" is going to last. He got worked the whole round, it reminded me of the Mir/Lesnar fight, get your asked kicked and while youre on the floor "hey! a foot, excellent" heel hook. Tim's done.
C-Bus Allstar- June 4, 2008 at 1:22 pm
This is how I saw it. If CB fought JT, it would have been a big wrestling match that JT very well could have won. That doesn't work out well for the UFC because Dana White is ALLL over CB's nuts.

If CB fought Tim, it would be over too quickly. Tim would get overwhelmed and knocked the fuck out.

CB fighting Amir seems like an excellent match-up to me for 2 reasons. 1: These are hands-down the two toughest guys left in the house. Period. 2: They BOTH are amazing strikers that can wrestle. So even on the ground, there's going to be a lot of action. And 3 (Just in case I haven't convinced you yet): These two have the best conditioning and the most gas in the tank. Meaning, they could go all 3 rounds and still not be breathing too hard.

If Amir fought Tim, he'd knock him out e z as pie.

JT Fighting Tim seems to be a good match-up stylistically speaking. Neither is very good at striking, and yet both have good wrestling and Tim has excellent Jiu-Jitsu skills. This means that even on the ground, it's going to be an exciting fight.

I see this happening: Amir is gonna get KO'd by CB (as much as I'd like this to go the Other way because CB is an ego_maniac), and Tim is gonna get TKO'd via GNP, by JT.

In the finals, JT is going to try to out wrestle CB and is going to end up getting caught in some (easy-to-avoid) submission such as a triangle or RNC.

CB wins finals, gets contract, JT puts on great fight, also gets contract.

And that's the game.

I guess CB and Jesse would have been to much of a wrestling type match, still though, would rather see Tim/Amir in the final against CB/Jess

Amir And Cb Is Going To be a Great Fight! =}
