Popular Canadian Fighter David “The Crow” Loiseau’s third stint with the UFC is apparently one and done.
MMAJunkie.com has confirmed Loiseau’s release from multiple sources who are close to the fighter.
Loiseau was brought back to the UFC after a two and a half year hiatus in which he fought for EliteXC and some Canadian organizations. His first fight back was against Team Quest fighter Ed Herman and took place in Loiseau’s backyard in Montreal last month at UFC 97. Unfortunately for Loiseau he was unable to figure out Herman and lost a disappointing unanimous decision. The loss dropped his UFC record to 4-4 overall. He fought Rich Franklin for the middleweight title at UFC 58 in March of 2006 and lost a brutal five round war from which he never seemingly recovered.
He had one more fight in the UFC against Mike Swick at UFC 63 in September of2006 and lost via unanimous decision. He was then cut and fought once under the EliteXC banner losing to Joey Villasenor in February of 2007. He then went on to win four of his next five bouts and was offered his spot back with the UFC.
