Heavyweights Joey Beltran (11-3) and Chad Corvin (6-0) have agreed to head north to throw leather at the upcoming UFC 113 event, which is scheduled for the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on May 8.

The UFC announced the match-up earlier today.

In addition to his destruction of Houston Alexander earlier this year, Beltran embarrased Octagon newcomer Rolles Gracie at last month's UFC 109: "Relentless" event in Las Vegas.

"The Mexicutioner" has won seven of his last eight, with a decision loss to Tony Lopez at KOTC: "Distorted" being the lone defeat during the nearly 15-month span.

He'll look to keep that momentum going against Corvin, who joins the Zuffa roster after compiling a perfect record through six fights on the regional scene.

The Kentucky native started his mixed martial arts career with Warrior MMA. After a torrid run from 2007-09 that saw him finish all four victims in less than four minutes combined, he graduated to Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) in December 2008.

Unfortunately for his opponents, the results weren't much different, as Corvin plowed his way through two opponents, ending both contests in the first round by way of (T)KO.

Now it's time for the big leagues.

UFC 113 will be headlined by a rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. The card's co-main event is set to feature an exciting welterweight match up between perennial top contender, Josh Koscheck, and the explosive Paul Daley.

Kimbo Slice will also make his pay-per-view (PPV) debut against fellow TUF 10 cast member, Matt Mitrione.
