After winning a lone bout outside the Octagon following his UFC release last April, the former 185-pound contender Loiseau (19-9) was tapped as a late replacement to face John Salter at UFC 113, but after initially being denied a license for the fight, the UFC instead booked Jason MacDonald for the matchup. “The Crow” has won 4 of his last 5 fights, dropping a lopsided unanimous decision to Ed Herman at UFC 97 before bouncing back with a first-round knockout in February.
Miranda (11-1), who holds notable wins over Rick Story and Joe Vedepo, dropped his UFC debut in March, suffering a first-round knockout to Gerald Harris at UFC Fight Night 21 for his first career loss.
Loiseau-Miranda will take place on the preliminary card of UFC 115, which is headlined by Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin and also includes Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Pat Barry and Paulo Thiago vs. Martin Kampmann.
