UFC veteran David Loiseau will fight on Canadian soil for the first time in three years when he squares off with Mike Kent in the Aggression Fighting Championship 20 headliner on July 12.
A native of Montreal, Loiseau last competed in his home country at UFC 115, when he suffered a second-round technical knockout to Mario Miranda in Vancouver. AFC 20 takes place at the Telus Convention Center in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and features 11 professional bouts.
Loiseau has won two straight fights since his lost to Miranda, defeating Leopoldo Serao to capture Tachi Palace Fights middleweight gold before stopping Chris McNally at CES MMA “Real Pain” last October. “The Crow” competed nine times in the Octagon, coming up short in a bid for the promotion’s middleweight strap against Rich Franklin at UFC 58 in 2006.
“AFC is a solid Canadian organization, and I’m excited to be fighting on their show,” Loiseau stated in a release. “Fans can expect excitement and fireworks from ‘The Crow’ on July 12.”
Kent, 29, began his MMA career with seven consecutive wins, finishing all of his opponents by submission or knockout. The Titans MMA product has lost two of his last three fights, most recently falling to Elias Theodorou in the opening frame at an Extreme Cage Combat event in May.
