Yvel 'I had to keep going till the ref said stop’

by TJ De Santis | source: sherdog.com
 

Gilbert Yvel discussed his devastating knockout of Pedro Rizzo with Sherdog.com’s TJ De Santis.

"I'm sorry Pedro, I truly am, but the thing is, I gotta go, I gotta keep going until the referee says stop, so you know, Im sorry, I didn't want to hurt him, and I hope he is okay, I didnt want to give him permanent damage, but the referee had to jump in, and I think the refree was a little late but my game is to ... I gotta keep going.

I don't hate other fighters. We are just two sportsmen. When he is okay, then we go make a party."

I dont think in this case Yvel was out of line.But I HATE fighters like Alex Andrade who would always wail on soneone who was out as if the guy had broken into his house or something.

I just dont like Yvel!, the guy is always doing something stupid like hitting a ref or another fighter after the bell, and then he is trying to stuff his excuse down your neck.... I have heard he is an ok guy if you meet him, I dont know what gets in to him in the ring he just breaks all the rules like they dont aply to him.I mean what other sport can you get away with ko'ing the ref?.... and then be aloud to fight again?, jeeez he is an embarasment to the sport, which is a shame because he is a good fighter, its just he cant control himself...This fight is the same, he was out! many fighters will tell you that they can tell a guy is out when they hit him, it looked obvious to me he was out and he could have laid off the last two hard shots.... still its hard to say, the ref had some explaining to do too.

Exactly right.  Regardless of his reputation, Yvel did nothing wrong.

I don't like Yvel at all, but this was all the refs fault IMO.

voorhees - I dont care what anyone says.You have a responsibility to not seriously hurt a fighter who can no longer defend himself.Dont forget,if someone dies or something from this type of shit,it might be all the anti-MMA lobbyists need to shut this whole sport down.What the fuck are you talking about? You just made that shit up. You keep fighting till the ref pulls you off. Please go and find another sport, maybe curling is more your taste. Nobody gets hurt in that!
