Vancouver, British Columbia —David "The Crow" Loiseau will make his return to the UFC at the upcoming UFC 115 PPV card on Saturday.
The Haitian-Canadian is an MMA veteran of 28 fights and has been involved at the very top of the sport for sometime.
It may surprise you to know that he is only 30 years old, and the dangerous striker fully intends on making the most of his return to the UFC.
After going 4-1 in his last five fights, and carrying an overall record of 19-9, there's a case for Loiseau climbing back up the ladder in the UFC Middleweight Division.
At the pre-fight press conference yesterday, "The Crow" gave a few words to Bleacher Report.
Greg Parfitt: David, you are making your fourth return back to the UFC after briefly fighting in the MFL promotion. How do feel about being back in the big time?
David Loiseau: I feel good. I'm motivated, very focused, and this is what I do, you know, fighting. So I'm very happy to be back on the biggest show.
GP: Being a Canadian, what does itmean to be fighting on a Canadian UFC PPV?
DL: You know, it doesn't matter where the fight is. Once the cage is closed, it's me versus my opponent. It doesn't really matter.
But I'm very happy that it is happening in Canada as there is going to be a lot of fans, and its always fun to fight here.
It's the first show in Vancouver, so obviously it's going to be a very big, historic event, and I'm just glad to be a part of it.
GP: What do you make of your opponent Mario Miranda? How do you match up with him and have you made any game plans?
DL: He's got solid jiu-jitsu and wrestling and he's a good fighter with decent hands. But we're looking for a great challenge, a good fight, and we're ready.
I'm very focused and ready to put on a great fight on Saturday.
GPL Can you just clarify your new contract with the UFC and your goals?
DL: It's a four fight contract and, of course, I am looking to climb back up the divisional ladder and challenge for the title.
GP: Thanks for your time David.
DL: No Problem.
With all the hype surrounding the young Canadian, Rory MacDonald at UFC 115, it's fair to say that Loiseau's return has been overlooked by some people.
Make no mistake, though. Loiseau is back, in great shape, and is determined to climb the ladder at UFC 115 in Vancouver.
Thanks to David for the quick chat.
