David Loiseau Denied License Due To Organized Crime Ties

David Loiseau was denied a license to fight in Quebec this week on the upcoming UFC 113 card in Montreal and it appears that the reason could be due to Loiseau's possible ties to Organized Crime according to Showdown Joe at Sportsnet.ca

Sources tell me that Loiseau is on some sort of invisible suspension list, stemming back to when he sold his previous MMA promotion, “XMMA”. He had apparently decided that his fighting career should be his priority and walked away after the sale. When it was all said and done, those who took over the organization were allegedly involved with organized crime.

Loiseau has maintained that once he left the company, he was unaware of what the organization began doing and that he was no longer a decision maker for XMMA. In essence, what they did was their business – he was focusing on returning to the UFC.

But although only one party was charged after the organization folded, many of those who fought, worked or were literally around XMMA, have felt the brunt of the QAC's iron-fisted approach to doing business.

Fighters were questioned about their involvement, with many apparently being threatened that they would never be licensed again if they didn't “answer questions”.
