Hardcore Championship Fighting has announced that it has added a middleweight bout between David “The Crow” Loiseau and Jason Day to it’s “Destiny” event, which will take place on February 1st at the Stampede Corral in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The addition comes less than a week after the cancellation of World Cagefighting Organization’s “The Return” where Loiseau was slated to take on Brazilian Leopoldo Serao.
The event, which was scheduled to take place last Saturday at the San Diego Sports Arena, was shut down by the California State Athletic Commission due to insufficent funds gathered by the promoters of the event. The commission ordered that all fighters be paid 20% of their purse.
Since being released from the UFC following a unanimous decision loss to Mike Swick, Loiseau has a split a pair of fights. Loiseau lost a decision to Joey Villasenor at EliteXC’s inaugural event last year but was able to bounce back with a submission win over Freddie Espiricueta at an Art of War show in May.
Loiseau is also scheduled to headline HCF’s next event in March.
Day has been victorious in eight of his last nine fights, his lone loss was a knockout at the hands of Patrick Cote in June. Day’s last fight was a win over veteran Ron Faircloth at Ultimate Cage Wars 10 in November.
