A light heavyweight bout between Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson (12-1) and seasoned veteran Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko (26-5) has been added to UFC 133 scheduled for Aug. 6 in Philadelphia.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the match-up over the weekend.
Following the devastating first round TKO beating Matyushenko took from Jon Jones in August of last year, “The Janitor” bounced back with two first round stoppages of his own.
Gustafsson, 24, made his UFC debut in Nov. 2009 with a 41-second knockout of Jared Hamman at UFC 105.
Gustafsson’s sole professional loss came against Phil Davis via submission at UFC 112 in April of last year.
