UFC fans will get their first glimpse of maverick Dutch kickboxer Gilbert Yvel at UFC 108 on Saturday.

"The Hurricane" comes in as a replacement for Gabriel Gonzaga to fight Brazilian heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos in what promises to be the sleeper event in Las Vegas.

"The guy's an amazing striker," said White.

"He's the only guy to ever knockout Cheick Kongo. He beat Semmy Schilt and just recently knocked out Pedro Rizzo.

This would be a good fight for dos Santos to show off his ground skills. I don't believe he's going to be dominated standing, but dos Santos is very close to a title shot and should keep it safe. I can't wait.

Yeah Santos would be smart to keep this on the ground as much as possible.
I mean his stand up is great,but why take the chance on the execption of just making the fight exciting.
But realisticly getting this fight on the mat is the smarter decesion for him.
