Gilbert Yvel smashes Pedro Rizzo, confirms bout with Paul Buentello at Affliction Trilogy

Gilbert YvelFeared Dutch striker Gilbert Yvel improved his professional mixed martial arts record to 36-12 this evening at “Ultimate Chaos” as he pulverized Pedro Rizzo in the first round with a barrage of strikes.

Things started out well enough for Rizzo as he took the dangerous kickboxer to the ground and proceeded to land some heavy elbows before Yvel managed to scramble back to his feet. Once up, Yvel bumrushed Rizzo and knocked him to the canvas where he finished him off with a series of punches that left the Brazilian in an unconscious stupor for some time after the fight was stopped.

After the bout Yvel confirmed that he expected for his next bout to be against Paul Buentello at Affliction Trilogy which is set to take place on August 1 in Anaheim, California.

Buentello was previously slated to face former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia before his recent knockout embarrassment at the hands of Ray Mercer persuaded Affliction to remove him from the card.

    Hopefully yvel didnt take to much damage from the elbows and crushes Buentello.

    Dropping Sylvia for losing a boxing match is like dropping Fedor for losing a judo match.
    Bad form Affliction.
    For Buentello to strike with Yvel would be suicide so I bet Buentello will(should)clinch and grapple with Gilbert.

    The Sylvia/Mercer fight was an MMA bout.

    And he was knocked in to the next century in the fight.
