Crow ready to soar again in UFC

Originally posted on

Six fights and 2 1/2 years since being cut from the UFC, David (The Crow) Loiseau is back. But in a way, the Montreal middleweight never really left. His spectacular spinning back kick and flying knee finish against Charles (Chainsaw) McCarthy at UFC 53 in June 2005 was immortalized in a highlight reel to the sounds of The Who's "Baba O'Riley" that is shown in the arena before the main card of every UFC pay-per-view.

On Saturday, fans at the Bell Centre will get to see the real thing as Loiseau meets Ed (Short Fuse) Herman at UFC 97 (available on pay-per-view).

"It was a tough long road," Loiseau said. "It took me (almost) three years to get back, but everything happens for a reason, you know. I'm very happy to be back."

Others are as well. Canadian fighters like UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre see the 29-year-old Loiseau as a pioneer, especially in Quebec, given that he made his UFC debut six years ago at UFC 42.
