Goran Reljic is set to make his debut in the Octagon on May 24 when the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to the MGM Grand Garden Arena according to his manager, Zoran Saric.

The 23-year-old Croation fighter has signed a multiple-fight contract to fight for the UFC. Terms of his contract were not disclosed.

Saric stated that Reljic’s first bout, at UFC 84, will be against American Top Team fighter Wilson Gouveia in the light heavyweight division.

Splitting his training between Croatia and England (where he trains with Roger Gracie), Reljic has a strong background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has submitted nearly every one of his opponents and has not gone to a decision en route to a 7-0 record.

Gouveia is currently riding a four-fight winning streak. He is a UFC veteran with a 4-1 record in the Octagon, his only loss being a decision to Ultimate Fighter veteran Keith Jardine.

I was really hoping that Gouveia would make the move up to fight some top competition after his last win against lambert. Not a terrible fight though.

Can't wait to see Gouveia again, been a fan of his for awhile. Never heard of Reljic, but Gouveia's always in a good fight.
