Former UFC middleweight contender David Loiseau (16-8), who had lost four of five fights after earning a title shot with then-champ Rich Franklin in early 2006, scored a dominating unanimous-decision victory over Todd Gouwenberg (7-4) in Saturday's Hardcore Championship Fighting's "Crow's Nest" event.

The event took place at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau, Quebec.

Loiseau, returning to his ground-and-pound roots and relying on devastating elbow strikes, took the decision with lopsided scores of 30-25, 30-26 and 30-26.

The 28-year-old fighter has now won two of his past three fights.

In other action, Hector Ramirez (7-3-1) decisioned Rob MacDonald (5-3) in a battle of UFC veterans, and "The Ultimate Fighter 4" cast member Gideon Ray (14-8-1) was on the wrong end of a decision with Nabil Khatib (8-2).

In an explosive women's bout, Sarah Kaufman (7-0) kept her perfect record in tact with a second-round TKO of Molly Helsel (5-7-1).
