Yvel, Madsen to meet at UFC 121
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.
