Knockout of the Day: David Loiseau KO’s Mike Kent Three Times in Fifteen Seconds at ECC 18 – Road to Glory

David Loiseau is what you’d call a “Jekyll and Hyde” fighter. In his last four UFC appearances dating back to 2006, “The Crow” hasn’t exactly looked like the guy who once made Charles McCarthy shit out his own intestines, to put it revoltingly. You could even go as far as to say that he’s looked like “a canned dog shit sundae.” Yet when Loiseau’s paired against some young gun on the local circuit, like he was against Mike Kent at ECC 18 – Road to Glory last weekend, he manages to not only come away with a vicious KO victory, but technically three KO victories, in under fifteen seconds.

You can check out the above video to see what we mean, but on the off chance you live in one of those strange countries where Youtube videos aren’t easily accessible, allow me to break down the fight in the style of Bas Rutten:

“OK, here we go. David Loiseau is good with the kicks so let’s see what he’s gonna do ‘ere. Right straight and BONG! De left hook catches Kent right on his whoopsie-daisy! He’s down…David following up with some ground and pound and BING! BANG! DANGADADANG!! It’s over.

Personally, I would have let Kent back up and broke his liver to teach him a lesson but that’s just me. ZABADA-DABADA Brian Urlacher’s a pussy.”

With the win, Loiseau notched his fourth straight victory since being ousted from the UFC during his third tour of duty in 2010. Anyone see him making a fourth run at the big time?

Knockout of the Day: Taekwondo > Muay Thai?


(Video courtesy of YouTube/WhatsOnVideos)

Typically you don’t many instances that demonstrate the effectiveness of Taekwondo in combat sports.

Sure, guys like Anthony Pettis and David Loiseau (back in the day) have shown just how flashy and exciting the art can be, but as far as knockouts go, Muay Thai has become the weapon of choice for most fighters who want to finish opponents like Anderson Silva did Rich Franklin.

This kickboxing competition video out of Japan flipped that theory on its head in a matter of seconds when the Taekwondo dude immediately ran out to the center of the ring and spin-kicked the muay thai stylist into dreamland.

If you haven’t yet watched an Yves Jabouin fight and you aren’t going to UFC 129, we suggest you sign up for a Facebook account to catch the Montreal-based Haitian take on Pablo Garza in the event’s prelims next Saturday.

A training partner of several past and present UFC standouts including David Loiseau, Miguel Torres and Georges St-Pierre, Jabouin has continually impressed his teammates with his highlight-reel finishes, his shocking speed and explosiveness.

We had a chance recently to speak with the 10-year MMA veteran and we discussed a number of topics including his childhood, his long road to the Octagon, and losing out on a title shot to Mark Hominick.

Check out what “Tiger” had to say after the jump.

And Now He’s Fired (Again): David Loiseau

After taking a rather ugly TKO loss against Mario Miranda during the UFC 115 preliminary card earlier this month, Canadian veteran David Loiseau has been officially released by the UFC. The firing represents the fourth time that Loiseau has parted ways with the UFC since 2003, as well as his fourth-straight defeat in the Octagon — a losing skid that began with his unsuccessful shot at Rich Franklin’s middleweight title at UFC 58.

Following UFC 115, Dana White was openly disappointed with the way Loiseau performed: "David’s been in this sport a long time, and again tonight he got dominated on the ground. That’s his problem…I’m sure (UFC matchmaker) Joe (Silva) is probably going to cut him after this fight, and David will probably have to work his way back up again…He’s been around the game a long time, like I said, but he keeps getting dominated on the ground."

Let’s Get It On MMA Cancels Quebec Half of Canadian Tournament Due to Commission Dithering Over Shape of Cage


(William Phelps Eno would be rolling in his grave if he knew he could have trademarked the shape of the stop sign he invented.)

You would think that with all of the bad press they’ve had in the past few weeks from the ludicrous delay in granting David Loiseau’s license for UFC 113 and the fallout from the Paul Daley sucker punch at one of their sanctioned events that the Régie des Alcools des Courses et des Jeux (RACJ) would want to stay under the radar for a while.

You’d be wrong.

Exclusive: Loiseau to Face Miranda at UFC 115 in Vancouver


(Loiseau spinning back kicking Charles McCarthy out of the UFC)

David “The Crow” Loiseau won’t have long to wait before he gets the opportunity to fight for the UFC again in Canada.

CagePotato.com has learned that the 30-year-old Montreal fighter, who due to licensing issues was bumped off the UFC 113 card that takes place in his hometown this weekend, has signed to face Mario Miranda on the undercard at UFC 115 June 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

“The Crow,” who was slated to face John Salter Saturday night, was replaced by fellow Canadian Jason “The Athlete” MacDonald when Quebec’s commission, (the Régie des Alcools, des Courses et des Jeux) held back from issuing his license to fight in the province until an investigation into Loiseau’s alleged ties to an organized criminal group could be completed. Police cleared Loiseau of any criminal involvement on Wednesday, but it was a day late and a dollar short, as the UFC had offered MacDonald the fight the day before as show was less than a week and a half away.

Exclusive: Loiseau Vindicated of False Criminal Affiliation; Granted License in Quebec


(Note to RACJ: Don’t make David angry. You won’t like him when he’s angry.)

David Loiseau contacted CagePotato.com today to inform us that he has been granted his fighter’s license by the The Régie des Alcools, des Courses et des Jeux (Regulators of Alcohol, Racing and Gaming), but says it’s too little too late for him to make it back onto the card for UFC 113 May 8.

Loiseau was slated to fight opposite John Salter at the Montreal show in a week and a half, but was informed by the UFC that he had been replaced by Jason MacDonald yesterday due to his inability to obtain his license, stemming from a baseless claim by the RACJ that the Canadian MMA pioneer had ties to organized crime.

According to the 30-year-old Montreal native, several months after he sold off his minority share of his Quebec-based XMMA promotion, following an extensive police investigation, its new owners were allegedly found to have ties to organized crime in the province. Loiseau was questioned by police and it was determined that he did not have any knowledge of the criminal involvement of the individuals he sold his stake in the organization to.

Unfounded Mob Ties KO Loiseau’s UFC 113 Return; MacDonald Replaces Him Against Salter


(Loiseau demonstrating what he would like to do to Quebec officials who won’t grant him a license to fight in the province)

Well, it seems that Quebec’s athletic commission, The Régie des Alcools, des Courses et des Jeux (Regulators of Alcohol, Racing and Gaming), is overstepping its boundaries at the cost of the livelihood of one of its province’s own fighters.

David “The Crow” Loiseau was brought in by the UFC to face John Salter on the undercard at UFC 113 May 8 as a late replacement for the injured Nick Catone. Having lost decisively to Ed Herman in front of a hometown crowd in Montreal in his last attempted UFC comeback at UFC 97 a year ago, Loiseau was relishing the opportunity to get back into the Octagon to try to earn a steady slot on the Las Vegas-based promotion’s roster.
