"This is like the highest point you can reach. It’s still a little bit difficult to believe, but I am in the UFC. What better way to prove myself than to knock out Dos Santos ... If I play my game and I be relaxed, and listen (to my corner) through the whole thing, I won’t, I hope there won’t be no problems because he is a good fighter, but his stand-up game is not in my league. For sure I’m going to knock him out. I do MMA to knock somebody out, because then you know you won. He’s on the ground. He’s sleeping, you’re standing, and it’s better than after two rounds the judge says to tell you who is better. If I knock him out then I did my job and nobody can say anything."

Gilbert Yvel anticipates a highlight reel debut when he takes on the fast-rising heavyweight prospect Junior dos Santos at UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva" on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.

I loved Yvel in Pride, I really hope he can deliver on this.

When Gilbert feels dos Santo's heavy hands against his skull he may feel differently.

I'm going to guess Gilbert's felt some power. dude's trained with Hoost, Bonjasky(very few people on earth kick harder or are more difficult to hit), and all the other boy's he's fought over the years.

You're right Gilbert, Junior doesn't waste time in triple A. I'll let you know when the majors call.
