411 MMA Interview: Into The Crow's Nest - An Exclusive Conversation With David Loiseau

Originally posted on

It's been three long years since "The Crow" David Loiseau was fighting inside the UFC's Octagon. Eye-catching finishes over Gideon Ray, Charles McCarthy, and the late Evan Tanner propelled the French-Canadian fighter to a UFC Middleweight Title shot against UFC poster-boy Rich Franklin. A grueling five-round slugfest against Franklin ended Loiseau's winning streak and, for what some believe, his confidence as a fighter. Two more consecutive loses to Mike Swick and Joey Villasenor added to those beliefs. While most thought that the end of the road had been reached by David, an Art of War show in May of 2005 showed the reemergence of "The Crow."


Todd Bergman: How's your training going leading up to UFC 97?

David Loiseau:Training is going well my friend, I can't complain. Everything is going A-1, can't complain.

Bergman:What are your thoughts on fighting back into the UFC after being gone for a little while?

Loiseau: It's a tough sport man, so it's always tough because the fights are always tough. I'm enjoying it though, you know. I love the sport and I'm enjoying the journey.

Bergman: What are your thoughts on your upcoming fight at UFC 97 in Montreal, Canada? Are you excited to be fighting in Canada again?

Loiseau: Yeah, it's where I'm from, so it's great.

Bergman: This is going to be your second run in the UFC. In what ways have you matured as a fighter since your initial run with the company?

Loiseau: You know, I just matured as a fighter overall. I've grown a lot as a person as well. I understand the game a lot more than I did before. I just really matured as a fighter and an individual both.


Bergman: Anyone that you want to thank?

Loiseau: I would like to thank my sponsors, I have many of them. TapOut, Naked Eye Magainze, Cintron Energy Drink, MMA Fight, Silverstar,
