Review: 2014-04-11, pretty good second part of the fight but it is not enough to get three stars: Vladimir Matyushenko vs Joey Beltran gets two. Vladimir Matyushenko entered this fight with a mma record of 27-7-0 (59% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.29 light heavyweight in the world, he fought twice last year losing against Ryan Bader (his last Ufc bout Bader vs Matyushenko) and then he made his Bellator debut defeating Houston Alexander (=Matyushenko vs Alexander).
His opponent, Joey Beltran, has an official record of 14-10-0 (86% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.65 in the same weight class, he comes off three defeats and one no-contest in the last two years. Matyushenko vs Beltran is on the undercard of Lavar Johnson vs Blagoi Ivanov and it should be Matyushenko’s retirement fight (he is 43 years old). Watch the video and rate this fight!
