Vladimir Matyushenko and Jason Brilz at UFC 129

Vladimir Matyushenko KO's Jason Brilz at UFC 129

Two fighters that have been recent victims of rising UFC light heavyweight stars are set to square off at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.

The UFC on Saturday posted on its website that Vladimir Matyushenko would square off with Alexander Gustafsson at the Aug. 6 event when the promotion returns to the City of Brotherly Love.

Matyushenko (26-5) is riding high on a 20-second knockout victory over Jason Brilz at UFC 129 in Toronto. The win over Brilz was his second-straight since suffering a TKO defeat to current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in August.

Gustafsson (11-1) is also riding a two-fight streak submitting James Te-Huna at UFC 127 and Cyrille Diabate at UFC 120. Gustaffson, like Matyushenko, fell victim to another young talent in the 205-pound division in Phil Davis prior to his latest back-to-back successes.

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is expected to headline UFC 133 in defense of his title against Chad Mendes.
