Heavyweight wrecking machine Junior dos Santos gave Dutch knockout specialist Gilbert Yvel a swift beating this evening at UFC 108 to further solidify his place among the top of the heavyweight division.
The fellow strikers threw down this evening from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The two powerful heavyweights went to work from the start with both throwing heavy hands and kicks, but it was Dos Santos who caught Yvel with a massive left hook as the two exchanged, dropping the UFC newcomer and finishing him off with a series of punches on the ground in the opening round.
The victory was the fourth of Dos Santos’ during his stint in the UFC, with all four wins coming by way of KO or TKO. Prior victims of the Black House trained fighter include Fabricio Werdum, Stefan Struve and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.
