Gilbert Ivel Hits A Ref
Ivel has had some questionable conduct during his tenure in the sport of MMA. However, no behavior was more egregious than what Ivel did in 2004.
The Dutch striker was fighting Atte Backman in a grueling match-up that featured a ton of clinch work. The referee kept breaking the fighters up and eventually Ivel got fed up and cold-cocked the official. Ivel didn’t stop there, as he then kicked the referee as he was down.
