A light-heavyweight bout between Vladimir Matyushenko and Jason Brilz is being finalized for April's UFC 129 event in Toronto.

Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com that verbal agreements are in place and that bout agreements are being finalized.

Brilz was expected to meet Matyushenko this past November at UFC 122 before a back injury forced him to pull out of the overseas show.

This could be a highly interesting match. Man, Brilz has not had an easy time in the UFC.

Kinda of an equal fight on paper, but I think I might take Vladdy with his exp.

I actually think Brilz might be the more powerful wrestler. Vladdy is more finesse, Brilz could overpower him.

I'm usually not one to ever complain about fights, I must say though I think it is a good fight for both at this point to see who is just outside top contender status, I'd hate to see this on the main card. Hamil vs Davis turned into this bout and I don't mind the match up just doesn't seem like its main card worthy when you think about how this is going to be on the biggest card in mma history. I'd rather see Diaz vs Rory or Patrick vs Roberts instead of this bout. Give this a spike prelims spot

Totally agree. This fight might not be the most exciting. I would love to see either one of the two other fights you listed.
