Make way for "The Rhino."

Chute Boxe-trained fighter Alexandre Ferreira will make his UFC debut when he fills in for the injured Jason Brilz against Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC 122 on November 13 in Oberhausen, Germany.

The UFC made the match-up official earlier today.

"Cacareco" stands at just 5'7" making him one of the shorter fighters in the 205-pound division, but brings with him a serious ground game.

Seventeen of his 18 wins have come by way of submission. Ferreira has tapped out his opponent in the first round in seven straight bouts.

Not too shabby.

"The Janitor" was recently caught on the tracks of the freight train known as Jon Jones his last time out in August.

Prior to the defeat at the hands (and elbows) of  "Bones," Vladimir reeled off two straight victories in the UFC against Igor Pokrajac and Eliot Marshall.

Matyushenko has won 11 of his last 13 fights with his only losses coming to Jones and "Lil Nog."
