Gilbert Yvel, best known for his ruthlessness and rule-breaking antics, has signed a three-fight deal with Japan’s DREAM promotion.
Yvel, who is 33-12-1 in MMA, has fought many matches against top tier talent in the world of MMA including Wanderlei Silva, Dan Henderson, Vitor Belfort, and Igor Vovchanchyn to name a few. Here are some of Gilbert’s greatest hits:
5/23/98 – Yvel is DQ’d for biting his opponent Karimula Barkalaev
9/24/2001 – Yvel is DQ’d for gouging the eyes of opponent Don Frye at PRIDE 16
11/13/2004 – Gilbert has his finest moment when he KO’d the referee only 35 seconds into the bout
The rumor is that he’ll be fighting his former training partner Alistair Overeem at a DREAM event before the end of the year.
Look out Japan, Gilbert is on the loose.
