Loiseau vs Miranda at UFC 115 in Vancouver

Monday, May 03, 2010

CagePotato.com has learned that the 30-year-old Montreal fighter David “The Crow” Loiseau , 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.

Loiseau will get no easy fight in Miranda, a 9-1 Brazilian fighter who was handed his first loss in his UFC debut by Gerald Harris at Ultimate Fight Night 21 in March.
