Thales Leites can't show Goran Reljic anything that he hasn't already seen from Roger Gracie.

Goran will destroy Thales on the feet, I guarantee it.

Goran seems like such a miserable bastard. I love it. He's like Babalu but with better kicks.

Gorans fight for sure, he's going to be huge at that weight class. He will KO Thales before he has a chance to get it to the ground.

EDIT: I voted Draw by accident, meant to put Goran.

Why is Draw/No Contest even on there? It's not like we're betting, so without odds it's totally pointless. Nobody would predict a Draw/No Contest over someone winning unless there stupid.

As long as Reljic throws LHK^infinity and pulls guard standing I'm down.

He's yet another Demian-like guy who nevr seems truly happy. Personally I think Goran will smash Thales. But that is if he makes his cut masterfully and don't come into the octagon half dead.

Interesting fight.
I don't know why Reljic is dropping down and if he will be comfortable at MW. He seemed huge against Gouviea. I suppose he must like his chances against Silva?

I really like Leites (check my thread in "Smacktalk" section) but I think this is a very problematic match up for him. Reljic's desire to keep the fight standing may expose Thales' lack of explosive and powerful takedowns. Thales' stand up is rapidly improving but if the fight says standing Reljic would have the edge.
But as we have all seen there is zero quit in Leites and I'm confident he will find a way to win.
WAR LEITES!!!!!!

I think I was probably one of the few to pick the unknown Goran over Wilson. Based on and old grappling footage + the fact that he trains with none other than Crocop and apparently Wand as well. Think I read somewhere that he trains at Xtreme. It's always important to look at their training camps. IE: You hear Black House...RUN...RUN VERY FAR AWAY OR FIGHT WITH A COUPLE OF BASEBALL BATS. BOTH TO DEFEND YOURSELF.

Needless to say I'd go for Goran. He's a rising star. Win or lose he's got HUGE potential. Look at his fricken height and reach. Intelligent fighter too. He was getting rocked by Wilson and then he pulled guard.

Probably another TKO.
