Gilbert Yvel Ready For UFC 115 After A Full Training Camp

↵

"I started with two sparring partners. One got knocked out in our first session and the other I did three rounds and he didn’t show up anymore," Yvel said. "Everybody was doing the Christmas thing."

Yvel will have the advantage of a full, three-month long training camp under his belt when he steps into the octagon for the second time at UFC 115 [vs. Ben Rothwell].

"I sincerely hope Dos Santos will become the champ so I can beat him," Yvel said. "He beat me in my debut and I honestly think he’s doing really well right now. I can see him becoming the next champ. It would be great to avenge myself and take the belt from him when he’s at his high point."

Yvel remains a huge threat standing up and should Rothwell decide to remain standing with him it will be a case of who can connect with the first big shot standing.  Should Ben make the decision to go to the ground he should be able to out-wrestle Gilbert and do some damage from the top.  It's an interesting bout and the loser may be at risk of being cut from the UFC altogether.
