Injury forces Goran Reljic out of UFC 90

UFC 90 on October 25th may have lost one of its televised bouts as Goran Reljic has pulled out of his middleweight bout with Thales Leites due to a back injury. Reljic is coming off of a victory in his Octagon debut over Wilson Gouveia at UFC 84 this past May.

The UFC has not officially scrapped the fight as Leites is still currently scheduled but the UFC has very short notice to find a suitable replacement for the middleweight contender.

Leites is coming off of a victory over Nate Marquardt, a controversial decision victory to say the least as Marquardt had multiple point deductions which gave Leites a split-decision victory.
