What, him too?

Thursday, August 13 12:00 am PT: The “Janitor” is in: the UFC announced Wednesday that onetime heavyweight and light-heavyweight contender Vladimir Matyushenko is scheduled to return to the organization at UFC 103 in Dallas, Texas on September 19. Matyushenko is scheduled to face Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic disciple Igor Pokrajac. And here you envied Bruce Buffer’s job.

The case for his employment: Fairly active since being KOed by Andrei Arlovski in his last UFC appearance, the Belarusian has done virtually nothing but maul people, with only one loss since 2003. (Fortunately, that loss came against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in Affliction, guaranteeing that virtually no one saw it.)

The case against: the 205 lb. division needs another wrestling-centric athlete (on top of Mark Coleman, Rashad Evans, Jake O’Brien, Matt Hamill, Dan Henderson, Jon Jones, and Tito Ortiz) like it needs Richard Simmons to suit up. I guess Dan Gable will be happy.
