Mixed martial arts veteran Vladmir "The Janitor" Matyushenko is the latest addition to Bellator MMA's light heavyweight division. Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney hinted at the signing Wednesday on Twitter, and the announcement was officially made today.

The 42-year-old Belarusian has one of the best wrestling backgrounds in the sport and his 26 career wins include the likes of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Travis Wiuff, Pedro Rizzo, Jason Lambert and Tim Boetsch.

"Vladimir is a fighter I've watched for years. He's an exciting fighter with an incredible wrestling background and a great pedigree in our sport. When the opportunity presented itself and we had the chance to have him join the Bellator family it was a very easy decision to make," Rebney said. "With our Champion Attila Vegh sitting at the top of the mountain right now, and with guys like Emanuel Newton, Mikhail Zayats and King Mo coming on strong, the light heavyweight division for Bellator continues to evolve and Vladimir should fit in perfectly to that mix."

"Bellator is one of the biggest promotions in the world, and to be associated with them is an honor," Matyushenko said. "I am optimistic and excited to work with Bellator. The amount of respect and honor I felt from Bjorn and the entire Bellator team was tremendous, and getting into the Bellator cage and cementing my legacy as a Bellator World Champion is the only thing on my mind."

Matyushenko will make his promotional debut live on Spike in a non-tournament fight. His opponent will be announced shortly.
