I had the opportunity to meet and speak briefly with David Loiseau this past weekend during the UFC Fan Expo in Toronto.

So, it appears as if David (barring any injury or a last-minute return to the UFC) will be return to fight under the Tachi Palace Fights banner and defending his title against a yet-to-be-announced opponent.
