This Friday, MMA veteran Vladimir Matyushenko will step inside the Octagon for the 11th time in his career, facing Alexander Gustafsson on the main card of UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Currently enjoying a two-fight winning streak in the UFC, Matyushenko will look to solidify his place as a Top 10 UFC light-heavyweight against the 16-years-younger Gustafsson.

Matyushenko is 26-5 in his MMA career, with the UFC’s reigning 205-pound champ Jon Jones being the only man to beat the Belarusian since 2009. We had an opportunity to speak to “The Janitor” who shared thoughts about the future of his Mixed Martial Arts career, his experience advantage over Alexander Gustafsson, and the rematch with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira he has been chasing for years.

Visit to read the interview and see exclusive photos from Matyushenko’s training camp.

Dude should've found a different nickname though. The Janitor is terrible, up there with The Carpenter. I mean, Chuck Liddell didn't call himself The Accountant. Just don't have a nick if you cant come up with one. Doesn't mean you're boring. I mean.. who is the highest profile fighter without a nick? ...oh...
