Vladimir Matyushenko has knocked out his last two opponents.

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.

He scored a KO over Alexandre Ferreira at UFC 122 in Nov. 2010, and then a TKO over Jason Brilz at UFC 129 last month.

Gustafsson, 24, made his UFC debut in Nov. 2009 with a 41-second knockout of Jared Hamman at UFC 105.

Since then he has gone 2-1 inside the Octagon, picking up submission wins over Cyrille Diabate at UFC 120, and most recently, against James Te-Huna at UFC 127 in February.

Gustafsson’s sole professional loss came against Phil Davis via submission at UFC 112 in April of last year.
