Who do you want to see Yvel fight next?

I wanna see him fight Kongo! I think that would be an exciting match up.


thoughts?

Kongo would be good, but I'd like to see him fight Cro Cop. They both are at their tail ends of their career and I think it would be more evenly matched than Kongo fighting Yvel.

Edit: Yvel already beat Kongo back in the day, so I'm sure Kongo wouldn't mind the chance to fight him again though

I'd like to see Yvel come in and not look scared. I'm getting really tired of guys looking like they;re fighting not to lose.

Not to take anything away from Dos Santos, but I don't think Yvel looked like himself either. I don't think he would get stage fright at this point in his career...perhaps fear of the TD maybe? Either way, I'd like to see him against a striker again. Buentello or Berry would be good IMO.

War Antoini Hardonk!!!!

I can't even remember if he's still in the UFC. You know he wouldn't take the fight to the ground.

Pat Barry if he's healed up, if not Hardonk.
Good test for Roy Nelson's first fight

I think Dos Santos is just that strong, Yvel is just another one dimensional kickboxer that strikes hard when he sets his feet, Yvel and Kongo rematch makes most sense since Kongo has lost his contender status again.

Paul Buentello

First time I've seen Gilbert look tentative in a matchup--even a little lethargic. Big props to JDS, but that wasn't the Yvel that goes out there with reckless abandon.

I would really like to see Cro Cop vs Yvel. That would really be a treat for the fans. Another opponent I'd like to see would be Ben Rothwell.

I thought the fight would be some exchanging and JDS taking a big shot(I think he has a good chin so it wouldn't put him down but I figured he would have ended up going for the take down and submitting Gil easily. I really don't think that was an accurate display of what Gilbert is about, but JDS definetly showed he can take anyone out.

Hardonk and Yvel both trained in Vos Gym under Ernesto Hoost. I don't know what their relationship is like, but usually even tenuous training partners are unwilling to fight each other.

A rematch with Kongo would be nice, but I think they may softball Kongo in his next fight so he can break a losing streak.

Buentello was promising a war with Yvel back when Affliction still lived and I think it'd be interesting must-win matchup in the UFC.

Kongo, Hardonk, Barry, Gonzaga, Buentello... Any of these would be awesome, I hope that even if Gil loses his next fight they dont cut him I say keep him forever until he retires seeing him entering the octagon made my year...

Just dont give him someone who will submit him in the first round I want to see fireworks
