Thales Leites can’t seem to find an opponent healthy enough to face him at the UFC’s upcoming Ultimate Fight Night 15 on September 17.
After Dean Lister was forced to drop out of their proposed matchup, the UFC persuaded Goran Reljic, a Mirko Cro Cop understudy, to drop from light heavyweight to face the popular Brazilian fighter at middleweight. Now Leites reveals that this fight is off as well due to injury.
“I was training and heard that they’ve changed my opponent again,” Leites told Tateme.com. “I was going to face Goran Reljic, he was coming down to my division, but he got hurt too. Now I don’t know who will I fight with. I was thinking and all the other guys from my division are with opponents. They said that I’ll fight, but I don’t know who.”
Below is a look at the fight card for UFN 15 as it currently stands:
Josh Neer vs. Nate Diaz
Mac Danzig vs. Clay Guida
Wilson Gouveia vs. Jeremy Horn
Joe Lauzon vs. Kyle Bradley
Ed Herman vs. Alan Belcher
Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer
