David Loiseau Back In The UFC Fighting At UFC 113


Recommended Posts

I reckon this is great news he will have alot of haters but I liked him. He had alot of potential & maybe now he is older & has more experience he will fulfill that potential plus being cut hopefully made him more hungry. If he brings those killer elbows with him he should do well & I hope he makes a come back.



Former UFC middleweight contender David Loiseau (19-9 MMA, 4-4 UFC) has been called in as a short-notice replacement to fight John Salter (4-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on the non-televised portion of UFC 113.


Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) that Salter's original opponent, Nick Catone, was forced to withdraw from the fight due to a back injury.


UFC 113 takes place May 8 at the Bell Centre in Montreal and is the promotion's third event on Canadian soil. A light-heavyweight title rematch between current champion Lyoto Machida and challenger Mauricio "Shogun" Rua headlines the show.


Loiseau, 30, met disappointment in his most recent octagon appearance after hhe gained a new UFC contract only to drop a listless decision to Ed Herman at UFC 97 in April 2009.


The French-Canadian returned to action in February with a TKO win over Chester Post at Mixed Fight League event.


Loiseau once fought for the middleweight title against then-champion Rich Franklin at UFC 58. Although he fought much of the 25-minute fight with both eyes swollen shut and dropped Franklin at one point in the fight, he was dominated in the majority of exchanges and lost a unanimous decision.


The term of Loiseau's new UFC deal is unknown.


Salter, 25, lost to Gerald Harris by TKO in his octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 21 in January. It was his first career setback after four consecutive stoppage wins.

I'm a big fan of Loiseau's older fights' date=' before he fought Franklin. I always thought he was really good, and was kind of confused when he suddenly took a turn for the worse. I'm not really sure what went wrong, but I'm glad to see him back and I hope he can pull out a win.[/quote']


Yeah he was one of the most exiting fighters back then and I hope he can get back to the top 10. Maybe his nerves got him when he fought for the title.

the crow is a good fighter but got beat badly by franklin for 5 rounds, i think it broke his spirit and left him unable to muster the self confidence to let it all hang out in fights.


Nobody wants to be under loiseau with him raining down bows on you . He is deadly from that position.


Im not sure if hes still friends with GSP or if they train together anymore , but if not, that would be great to have him go back in that group. Would do him a lot of good.
