When FanHouse spoke to David Loiseau recently about his MMA future, "The Crow" was still focused on continuing his career with the UFC despite getting cut by the organization in April. And according to Loiseau's agent, Ken Pavia, Loiseau thinks that trying out for the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter provides his best chance at getting back into the UFC.

"He's committed to doing whatever it takes to get back into a major show, and that includes submitting an application for the next TUF season," Pavia told FanHouse on Tuesday.

Maybe this is just what he needs. I really like Daviid Loiseau and maybe this could be a way for him to build up some momentum and confidence.

More likely though even if he does win the show he won't make an impact on the division.

I'm glad he is still trying. He has the skills, he just needs the fire to be re-ignited.

I would like for the ufc to do more of this. Keep having tuf's with people just on the outside of getting to the ufc. Enough with the fighters that have a few fights on their record already. Every season starts out with terrible fights. Look at last episode for an example.

The Crow is going at it the right way and I hope he does well.

I think after you have been in and out of the UFC a couple of times the way back in should not be TUF, it should be from winning a few times in smaller orgs. He is great to watch but definately inconsistant.

He's another guy who has tons of talent but no mental game.

I agree. A few others I would like to see on TUF would be Jeff Joslin, John Alessio, Yves Edwards, etc.

This is what I think TUF should be about, not fighters that are 0-0 or 2-0.

Just what the TUF house needs. A gate keeper.

he might be able to build his skills and come out a monster, the same way Cote' and Lytle did, both those guys were pretty decent before but after the show they were and are very tough fighters.
Don't know if it has anything to do with the house/show or not, or just natural improvement with time but I would think , once your on that show , you become more popular and if you play the role of a "good guy" and everywhere you go kids and people in general are telling you that you were awesome, or they were going for you to win the whole show and are happy your back in the UFC , its gotta build confidence, which is huge in the mental and then you perform with a new found look at it.

TUF 11 "The Comeback 2"

I love the idea, and I totally agree with Rush, TUF should be about seasoned guys that just need the extra boost (spark) to bring them to the next level, not guys fresh out of the amature ranks that still have a ton to proove, not to mention they always seem to throw in the guys like mac danzig with built records and a ton of expirience that makes it lopsided, I just dont understand.

The only reason I can think of for harvesting fresh (not seasoned) fighters is that the UFC can build them up and pay them next to nothing to be in shows. It's possible that the seasoned guys just want (or expect) more money

I dunno about seeing the crow, but i wanna see fellow canadian jeff joslin in the ultimate fighter house, i was to one of his seminars back in may and he was tellin me that he actually tried out for tuf, 2-3 times and never made it to the house, and he is as skilled and athletic as you can get.

War Joslin!
