Goran Reljic out of UFC 90 bout vs. Thales Leites

Light heavyweight-turned-middleweight fighter Goran Reljic has been forced to pull out of UFC 90 in Chicago on Oct. 25 due to a lower back injury.

Reljic’s management revealed the news to various Internet outlets over the weekend.

The Croat had been slated to fight fellow middleweight Thales Leites in a bout slated to air during the pay-per-view portion of the show but Leites is now left without an opponent.

It is uncertain whether Leites will remain on the card against a new opponent or if he will be taken off the show.

According to his manager, Zoran Saric, Reljic may only be sidelined for two-to-four months. Reljic, who is 8-0, made his UFC debut as a light heavyweight at UFC 84 this past May, where he recorded a second round TKO over American Top Team’s Wilson Gouveia.

    This sucks, I was looking forward to this fight.

    Reljic has a ton of potential and I was eager to see him at MW.

    Obviously Goran Reljic heard that GSP now has a Blackbelt,so why even bother to show up and fight,even at another weight?
    I kid,I kid.
    Goran,GWS.

    In fact Doc, since GSP is finally someone you have to fear……

    I hear that Chuck Norris wears GSP pajamas…..

    I also heard GSP’s urine cures many sicknesses

    In fact in the next fight with BJ, GSP will telepathically use a Peruvian Necktie to win

    BTW….I wish Reljic was still going to fight Leitis, not to get off topic

    dumbass fighters and always getting injured! I swear i am tired of hearing all these injuries and messing up good fights lined up. And then i hear mcfedries might replace him, weak! He lost his last fight and is only somewhat descent. I swear as a fighter i hope to never injure myself like all these other tards to so frequently.
