Loiseau Cut From UFC, Again

After his humbling unanimous decision loss to Ed Herman at UFC 97, the organization cut ties with middleweight David Loiseau, for the second time.

Just three years ago, Loiseau was the division’s top contender. However, after he was dominated by then-champ Rich Franklin at UFC 58 things started to go south for the Canadian.

The up-and-coming Mike Swick then handed him his second consecutive unanimous decision loss at UFC 63, and Loiseau was given his walking papers.

After a two-year hiatus from the Octagon, Loiseau appeared to have rejuvenated his MMA career. He had won three of his last four bouts, and was riding a three-fight winning streak into his fight with Herman.

In addition, UFC 97 was held in Montreal, Canada, right in Loiseau’s backyard. It was the perfect setting to celebrate “The Crow’s” return.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned for Loiseau and he is the latest UFC fighter to hit the unemployment line.
