In spite of setbacks...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, David Loiseau (21-10) said that he sees himself continuing to fight all the way to the age of 40.
On finding fights: "It's just (tough) getting the opportunities to fight, the right fight, the right money, the promotions. A lot of promotions are folding. I got the Tachi Palace belt, and they stopped doing fights. Then I go and to look for fights elsewhere. It's not as easy as it looks to book fights. I have a lot of fights and a lot of experience, and not everyone wants to fight me short notice or anything like that."
On if he's ready to fight at any time: "That's one thing about me: It's my lifestyle. I'll always be ready to fight. I train all the time, and I just stay ready. I train hard all the time. My goal honestly is to become the best fighter I can be. I just want to become the best I can be, and wherever that takes me, I'll go, whether it's the UFC or anywhere else. I was too focused on what's outside. I need to focus on me and what's inside."
On his future: "Priority No. 1 is fighting right now. I never drink, never smoke, never do drugs. I'm very disciplined. I'm a fighter before anything. I'm 33, but I live a clean lifestyle, healthy lifestyle. I'll be fighting until 38, 39, 40, no problem."
