Its true, they certainly like to have some home-grown talent anywhere they go. I just think that DL has earned it aswell.

All we need is a post from Loiseau's biggest fan, WheresTheCrow?, and this thread will be complete.

Loiseau's good, and Canadian. So am I, so I'm cool with him coming back.

This seems nothing more than filling in a spot Kalib Starnes would have had if he didn't get booed out of the UFC.

Sorry, but my passion for hating all those French-Canadian separatists is at an all time high now that were within a month of GSP/Penn II.

But on this note, I'd expect The Crow to win either in a pretty slick TKO or a boring UD.

Haha, yeah this is great news because it's tough following the guy when he is fighting in the smaller shows. I told a friend months ago, after the Soloman Hutchinson fight, that he would be back at the next event in Canada.

I have to agree with BBJD a little though. I hope that Loiseau will start to impose his will against his opponents and quit this waiting around, defensive bs. When he gets aggressive and attacks, he is a very good fighter. If he sits back and allows fighters to set the pace and do what they want to, he will probably find his way out once again...I hope not though.

Has the makings of a fun fight. The Crow has been training hard, with GSP of course and now with Greg Jackson

Loiseau has a very good shot at beating Herman, as long as he shows up.

I guess all that tagging along in his nice suits has done him some good, anyone see him with Rashad in the locker room after he beat Forrest?

Seriously though, I'm happy he's back but don't think he will be much of a contender in the future, will have a few good fights and earn some cash so good for him.

Im kinda dissapointed to hear this, I like Loiseau but XMMA was really behind him as a former UFC guy they were building as one of their marquee names, I hate to see a small upstart promotion lose what was perhaps there biggest name.
