David Loiseau returns to Canada, meets Mike Kent at AFC 20 in Calgary


It has been three years since Loiseau has fought on Canadian soil, his last being June 12, 2010, at UFC 115 in Vancouver BC. Coming off of 2 wins “The Crow” will be looking to keep that streak going when he flies into the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary, AB., July 12, 2013.

When the Tri-Star product and Montreal QC product, Loiseau was asked about signing for this fight he replied with, “AFC is a solid Canadian organization and I’m excited to be fighting on their show. Fans can expect excitement and fireworks from the Crow on July 12th!”

Mike Kent comes into this fight with a stellar 9-2 record. When the opportunity was brought up to Kent about the possible match up, he was ecstatic and immediately jumped at the chance to take on a legend in Loiseau.

Kent was asked about the fight and relied with, “I was thinking about taking the summer off but when the opportunity came up to headline an AFC event there was no way I was going to turn that down. Fighting a legend like Loiseau is going to be a memory I’ll have for the rest of my life and that’s the reason I will be 100% ready. That’s the reason I will train the hardest I ever have. I want to keep this fight on the feet and make it an exiting fight that myself and my fans will remember for forever. When I retire I want to be able to sit around with my buddies, have a couple pops, and say, “Remember the night I fought THE CROW in the AFC main event” I can’t wait!”

AFC matchmaker Darren Owen on the fight, “Loiseau has been that elusive fighter that I’ve always wanted to sign. Now with the growth of our organization we’ve made this a reality and we are extremely excited that we can bring this Canadian icon to our fans. As for Mike Kent we absolutely love this kid, he wants the big fights, he wants to test himself against the best. It seems like fewer guys these days really want to fight the best out there. I guarantee you he will come out guns blazing and will be looking to finish this fight.”

Mike Brown decides against retirement, meets Akira Corassani at UFC on FOX Sports 1 inaugural event


Mike Brown isn’t retiring just yet after all.

After flirting with the idea last year and undergoing his second neck surgery months later, a healthy Brown has decided to return to action against Akira Corassani at the UFC on FOX Sports 1 inaugural event on Aug. 17.

The promotion announced the fight on Friday.

The 37-year-old Brown (26-8), a former WEC featherweight champion, enters the bout riding a two-fight winning streak. He considered walking away from the sport last May when he defeated Daniel Pineda at UFC 146. An emotional Brown spoke to MMAFighting.com about his undecided future after the fight and said he was “getting near the end.”

Corassani (11-3-1) also enters the bout on a two-fight winning streak. He most recently defeated Robbie Peralta via unanimous decision in April at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in his native Sweden.

The event will take place at the TD Garden in Boston.
