My thoughts exactly. The guy really is huge.
He'll definitely be the biggest guy in the division. I just hope the cut doesn't play a role in his performance that night.

I wasn't very impressed with Goran first fight I think he was a little overhyped at 205.

However he can be a force at 185 however Leites is real good.

IDK who will win this I think I'm gonna pick Leites because his ground game is so good.

Goran will destroy Thales on the feet, I guarantee it.
Just because he trains with Roger Gracie doesn't mean he still can't get submitted.

I wouldn't be surprised if Goran was asked by Dana to drop to 185, in the LHW division he really isn't getting the attention he deserves.

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.
He also trains his grappling with Roger Gracie, so his ground game must be pretty good. I hadn't been able to find any of Goran's fights online, so I hesitantly picked Gouveia to win, but I'm glad Goran won.. he has so much potential.

Makes me wonder if we'll even get to see this fight.

Goran "Let's-Get-It-On" Reljic might just throw a LHK at the weigh-in.
