    I checked this morning some MMA news and then this…..

    This is bad for MMA and for the dutch MMA scene…
    How far can you go?

    Gilbert Yvel just ko:d a referee intentionally in his match in Finland!

    Gilbert Yvel KO:d a referee soon after the start of his match in Finland. The referee had just ordered the match to be started from the same position where it had been stopped, but Yvel refused to get back in the same position.

    The referee ordered Yvel again to go back to same position and then Yvel went crazy and punched the referee in the face and KO:d him.

    Yvel must have been taking some drugs before the incident in my opinion, because he was completely unresponsive to the referees orders during the match.

    After the punch he refused to leave the ring, but left the ring a little while later with many bouncers following him to the changing room. The police was called to the scene and Yvel was taken in custody of the police.

    I think all organizations should ban Gilbert Yvel from fighting for life, because of his actions.

    It is very bad publicity for MMA if fighters go mental and start attacking almost anyone who happens to be in the same building.

    It is also dangerous to let people who are under the influence of drugs to get into the ring.

    Yvel must be taking something like cocain or amphetamine to be acting like that. Or at least I think he must be.

    Anyway a life long ban from all organizations is a deserved punishment for him.

    If he can act like that in the future it may create problems with the law for MMA organizations and maybe even get the sport banned in some countries.

    Here some post from someone for the audience…

    I saw the fight, it was unbelievable, the punch surprised everyone! he even kicked the ref when he fell down. I think yvel must have been on something, or at least it seemed like as he was… he was so hyped up, he didn’t even stay in his own corner when the ref tried to start the fight and he had to be told to get in the corner several times. he didn’t even let the ref touch him, he repeatedly slapped the refs hand away when he tried to lead him to the restart position! afterwards there were about 15 police officers there to calm the situation down, i heard they took him out from the backdoor… what happens next i don’t know, but i heard one of the judges saying yvel will get a ban, that’s for sure

Then he was lead down to the dressing rooms… 🙄 🙄

    “Anyway a life long ban from all organizations is a deserved punishment for him. ”

    I can’t really say that I agree with that. He is probably going to get in lots of trouble through the legal system as it is. I think that if I were promoting an event, I would not hire him, but I would not say it is for life. People do change, sometimes. Maybe 2-3 years down the road, he’ll have gone through drug rehab or counseling or something that changes his behavior. But that’s just me. I understand if other people want to give him the “electric chair”.

    The day after he was already in Holland in the audience watching a kickboxing event.
    Released by police after a day.
    I wonder if the referee/promotor pressed charges.

    Heis still on the card of next year in the Arena.

    I think dutch promotors will hire him.
