Good fight. I would have thought they'd give Yves a higher ranked opponent after being the first to knock Stephens out but it's a good fight nonetheless.

What I think happened here is that they wanted another fight or two for this card and Yves was fresh off that quick KO of Stephens and wanting to go again and a guy coming over from Strikeforce certainly wouldn't turn down a UFC opportunity like this, so boom... a UFC fight.

Ya I agree I think you will see a lot of this happening with all the strikeforce guys making the jump to the UFC
