Known as "The Hurricane", Gilbert Yvel was born June 30, 1976 in Amsterdam, Netherlands and is a Dutch mixed martial arts fighter. He is associated with the Vos Gym training camp in the Netherlands.

Gilbert Yvel was one of the first Dutch fighters who successfully applied the muay thai striking style to MMA. Unlike many other Dutch MMA fighters, Yvel started out doing MMA from the onset, without transitioning from kickboxing or another striking art. Gilbert possesses an arsenal of strikes and kicks as befitting his Muay Thai training, and is famous for his signature "flying knee" strike. Yvel's grappling style is mainly defensive, and is often praised for his toughness and ability to do damage from the guard. Yvel also has fought 3 K1 matches.

Gilbert Yvel grew up in the Bijlmer in Amsterdam. Through his brother he came into contact with kickboxing and mma, and after only 2 years of training he made his debut at 17 years of age, representing Vos gym. Gilbert was off to a flying start winning his first 9 fights, primarily fighting for the Rings promotion. His first loss came to "dirty" Bob Schreiber in 1998. In the following years Yvel came to be considered the best Dutch heavyweight fighter active on the European fighting circuit.

Yvel will fight up-and-coming Brazilian heavyweight Junior dos Santos at UFC 108 replacing Gabriel Gonzaga for the January 2nd bout. He has a 7 fight deal signed with UFC.
