Loiseau made his UFC debut in April 2003 at UFC 42, defeating Mark Weir by KO. Later in the year, at UFC 44, he lost a unanimous decision to Jorge Rivera.

After going 2-1 in the TKO promotion, Loiseau returned to the UFC in 2005 with TKO wins of Gideon Ray, Charles McCarthy and Evan Tanner. He then lost back-to-back unanimous decisions in 2006, to Rich Franklin at UFC 58 and to Mike Swick at UFC 63.

In his first fight after his last UFC release, Loiseau defeated Leopoldo Serao at Tachi Palace Fights 8: All or Nothing for the TPF Middleweight Championship via TKO in the fifth round, when the doctor declared Serao too badly cut to continue.[6]
