Gilbert "The Hurricane" Yvel

Gilbert "The Hurricane" Yvel

Gilbert Yvel is one of PRIDE FC's most dangerous and spectacular strikers. Always the showman, there is substance to Yvel's style, including his crowd-pleasing, but lethal flying knees. Most fighters cannot stand toe to toe with "The Hurricane," so the general strategy is to shoot in for the takedown and win the fight on the ground. To avoid this, Yvel retaliates with a barrage of knees! Though he has suffered some tough losses in PRIDE FC, Yvel still possesses one of the all-time spectacular highlight film pieces with his high kick KO of Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge. Yvel's nickname of "The Hurricane" comes from his fighting qualities: strength, spirit, and quickness. He also possesses one of the largest tattoo collections in the sport! Among his numerous tattoos, a "KO List" listing his knock out victims!
