Default Does anyone think that Gilbert Yve

should be in the UFC at all?

I remember seeing his fight with Don Fry.. I hated seeing him fight Junior dos Santos, but was happy to see him lose.. and he didn't cheat at all..

But shouldn't we hold the fighters for the premiere MMA company up to a higher standard?

I would honestly say no.

From a fighting standpoint, he doesn't add anything of value to the heavyweight division, and coupled with his past reputation I don't see the positives of having him on board.

If Yvel had assaulted a ref in the UFC, he would never have been brought back, so I think it's a bit crazy that he was ever offered a chance to return.

Yes he should be and I told everyone why in a post awhile back

Yvel should be on every card the UFC puts on IMO

Would you want to be the fighter that he does something "crazy" to, and ends your carrer.. cause he "lost it" or was losing the fight?

I think he was being sarcastic...at least I hope he was.
