Gilbert Yvel vs. Jon Madsen Set For UFC 121


UFC 121 will be headlined by a heavyweight championship bout between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez. The event — which will take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California — has recently added another heavyweight contest to the card.

The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that TUF alum and Hit Squad member Jon Madsen (6-0) will be stepping into the cage against the heavy-handed MMA veteran Gilbert Yvel (36-15-1).

Since returning to the octagon, Yvel has dropped back-to-back fights to top contender Junior Dos Santos and IFL veteran Ben Rothwell. Yvel will be looking to rebound and hand Madsen the first loss of his career with a spectacular knockout.
