Tim Credeur’s fight with Cale Yarbrough was called off when Tim indicated on his medicals that he was taking Adderall, which is generally used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder. The standard reaction to situations like this is as follows: Wow what bullshit that commissions ban this shit, who gives a fuck? My standard reaction is “How dumb do you have to be to not know that your medication is a banned substance?”
I know people have a hard time understanding that fighting is a real job and there’s certain parts of it that may or may not be 100% fair. Is Adderall likely to give Tim Credeur an unfair advantage? Honestly, they could have given him an axe and he would still probably lose to Cale Yarbrough. That’s besides the point though … as a fighter you’ve only got a few things you have to take care of in order to fight: making weight, fighting hard, and testing clean.
Lately there’s been a lot of people too lazy to make weight. And there’s always a few dummies out there claiming ignorance on testing clean. I’m simply blown away that Credeur never stopped to think “Hmm, maybe I should make a phone call or two to check if my medication is completely illegal or not.” Tim was one of the few semi-likable guys on this season of TUF … but goddamn. He just fucked himself over.
