- No word yet on whether or not the WEC has found a replacement opponent for Brock Larson for the promotion’s first ever televised event on Versus. Larson was originally supposed to challenge Carlos Condit for the WEC Welterweight Title but Condit was forced to bow out of the bout after sustaining an injury during training.
- The Fight Network is reporting that David Loiseau is currently sidelined with a broken thumb and will be out of action for 2-3 weeks:
David Loiseau (15-7) is currently sidelined with a broken thumb that required surgery two weeks ago. “The Crow” suffered the injury during his win over Freddie Espiricueta on May 11th at the Arena Fighting Championship’s “Art of War II” show in Austin, Texas.
The Canadian middleweight defeated Espiricueta with an arm-triangle submission in the second round, after damaging his right hand earlier in the fight.
“I have to wait two to three more weeks [before removing the cast] and then I’ll start training again,” said the 27 year old.
Nonetheless, the Montreal native has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Steele Cage Promotions IFO event in Las Vegas on July 7. Loiseau was slated to face Chilo Gonzalez (9-7) in the upstart MMA organization launched by former boxing referee Richard Steele.
