It's an ugly debate.
Think about it. Loiseau's last two fights were horrible. He seriously didn't do anything, especially in his fight with Swick. He didn't throw or anything!
UFC lets him go... big deal. However, since Loiseau "used to be" amazing to watch, everyone is upset. Look at how quick all you guys wrote off other guys who slipped up... Shamrock, Tanner, now Franklin.... They were good in their day too, and now they fell off a little bit and everybody acts like they suck. Why is Loiseau still looked at as a god? Two bad fights in a row.
Next we have BJ Penn.... Penn lost twice in a row... why is he still there? Because his fights were still exciting. Loiseau's consecutive losses, not exciting.
I like Loiseau, but I understand why he got let go. As for the other end of the argument, I could name 30 guys that should have gone before Loiseau, yes... but you gotta admit, it's not THAT suprising if you saw his last couple fights.
