Was @ IAFC - Pankration European Championship, in 1998.
I never understood how Yvel didn’t get permananently banned from the sport, he is a real POS! And Volk should have been reprimanded as well.
These MMA Org. were still new...
And Volk was Russian NHB`s face...
Yvel was a cheat in every promotion he fought for until his UFC and post UFC fights. And yes Volk was Russia’s Face early on but slapping a ref should require some sort of punishment regardless.
Gilbert Yvel is not a nice person.
He is a cool dude, outside the ring. Just like Bob Schreiber. Assholes inside the ring who will do anything to win. Personally i think this kind of behavior is 'better' then guys like Dan Henderson hurting people after a KO or something. But cheating/foul play sucks, this is a sport
"cool dude, outside the ring" . Nah , he's just a straight POS . Did you see this video ? He got into a confrontation with the guy he's supposed to fight at the hotel and then follows the guy up to his room with a knife . Starts at 3 minute mark .I think he got the knife from the hotel kitchen . I grabbed a pic of when I think he grabbed it , he has it wrapped in his shirt . The fight is good though .
At World Vale Tudo Championship 9, in 1999,Fabio Piamonte literally gave him the finger and cursed him the day b4 the fight, at the swimming-pool, and.. he did nuthin.. went upstairs to his room and exploded there, alone.
Piamonte claimed he didnt like Yvel´s attitude towards women at the swimming-pool...
Still went up there with a knife .
I dont remember this part, believe it was not included in the VHS.
I remember listening to a couple of Yvel interviews, where he just seemed like a really cool dude.
Yvel was the one who started the love for mma for me... but crazy maybe, but always came to fight/ko people
Yep, within the rules or not.
In their primes:
Gilbert Yvel v Gerard Gourdeux.
Bring an extra ref.
That is the worst display at failing to hold a guy down Ive ever seen!! He must have taken Yvel down 5 or 6 times in the first minute and Gilbert just stood up with ease.
Bring 2 extra refs...
