They say give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. If you give Gilbert Yvel a referee, he’s right hook him in the ear and soccer kick him on the mat. We were at The Ultimate Chaos when Yvel absolutely napalm bombed Pedro Rizzo with perhaps the knock out of 2009 (and we have it all here). Later that night, we caught up with Gilbert and his boy Eric Bradley (a guy that should definitely fight more often) and congratulated him on his continued rawness. After checking that our spleens were still intact, we left Gilbert Yvel at the after-party and went to perhaps the worst strip-club in America.
Those were the days when Gilbert Yvel ruled MiddleEasy. After The Ultimate Chaos (and well into his UFC career) we constantly tried to interview Yvel but he managed to duck all of our attempts. LayzieTheSavage finally caught up with Gilbert last weekend, and it seems Yvel is under the impression that Alistair Overeem uses performance enhancing drugs.
