UFC 90: Mayanrd/Clemenit moved to main card, Mcfedries replaces Reljic


Leites vs. McFedries at UFC 90; Maynard vs. Clementi headed to main card
by Dann Stupp on Oct 13, 2008 at 2:26 pm ET
With Goran Reljic (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) forced out of UFC 90 with a back injury, his original opponent, Thales Leites (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC), is now expected to fight UFC veteran Drew McFedries (7-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC).

A source close to McFedries alerted MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the likely substitution today.

With the change, a fight between lightweight contenders Rich Clementi (32-12-1 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Gray Maynard (5-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) is now expected to be promoted from the UFC 90's un-televised preliminary card to the pay per view broadcast's televised main card.

UFC 90, which features a main event of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva vs. Patrick Cote, takes place Oct. 25 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., near Chicago.

Reljic first signed a UFC 90 bout agreement to meet Leites in August. However, the Croatian fighter has since suffered a back injury and is seeking treatment. In his place will likely step McFedries, a hard-hitting Miletich fighter who debuted in November 2006.

Since that time, McFedries has followed a knockout win with a loss three times over his six UFC fights. He most recently suffered a first-round submission loss to Mike Massenzio at UFC Fight Night 15.

Leites, meanwhile, will go for his fifth straight victory in the UFC since suffering a unanimous-decision loss to Martin Kampmann in his 2006 octagon debut. The Brazilian most recently scored a split-decision victory over Nate Marquardt at UFC 85, though the win was aided by Marquardt's two costly point deductions.

This is one of the undercard fights I really wanted to see. I love this type of match-up where you have the tough savy veteran versus the strong up-and-comer. Should be very interesting to see if Maynard can bull doze Clementi or if Rich will be able to trick and out smart Gray. Either way should be a very good fight.

Wow, I'm just glad I am finding out Maynard/Clementi was on the under card now that it isn't true. That would have been a travesty. 1 of these 2 guys should enjoy a significant career boost after this fight and I want to watch it damnit!

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Maynard/Clementi deserves to be on a main card and Mcfredries is going to get subbed out by Thales no problem.

This is bullcr*p Leites should still be on the main card! I mean I still wanted to see Clementi/Maynard so I guess it is alright and Leites should still make it on the broadcast since he will SUB McFedries in under 2 minutes.

It sucks Reljic had to pull out, I wanted to see him at 185. Against McFedries, Leites wins by easy submission, I say arm triangle.

I'm happy Maynard-Clementi is now on the main card, because I really like both fighters. I have Maynard winning by unanimous decision.

I don't think Drew will get booted if he loses. He's a replacement, I'm sure Joey Silva will give him another fight.

Leites is so going to smoke McFedries.
