Yvel, Madsen to meet at UFC 121

by Brett Okamoto | source: lasvegassun.com

A heavyweight clash between Las Vegas-based Gilbert Yvel and "The Ultimate Fighter" alum Jon Madsen has been added to the UFC 121 card Oct. 23, according to sources close to the event.

Several websites initially reported Madsen would face heavyweight prospect Todd Duffee, but multiple sources told the Las Vegas Sun Tuesday that Duffee will likely not compete on the card.

Bout agreements for the new matchup should be signed within the week.

Yvel (36-15-1) will be looking to rebound from back-to-back losses in his first two appearances in the UFC octagon.

Why is the UFC giving Yvel another wrestler? Yvel si never going to be a contender he dosen't need to prove he can't wrestle, i'd much rather see him against Duffee, Barry etc.

Yvel / Duffee would have been better.

Why is Madsen still at heavyweight? Guy is way too short. He should cut down to 205.
