The first and only report from the Croatian press I've seen of this incident was published today by this Croatian news site. Apparently two men crashed into the sea at 3 AM near the home of Reljic who jumped out of bed and rescued the two men in his underwear. The entire article is available at Fight Ticker:


When he heard the crash, Goran jumped out of bed, still in his underwear and jumped into the sea.

He swam to the car, proceeded to brake the windshield of the vehicle and pull both men to land. Several eyewitness accounts confirm the story and so does Goran himself who doesn't want any praise or recognition for the good deed.

"The only satisfaction I get is that both young men are alive and healthy. I don't need any praise. I simply did what anyone one would have done in that situation," said Reljic.

Props to Goran

Good on Goran, he's a classy kid.

I think he's a great person and will be a great fighter.

Someone should make a flash movie reenactment of that, it kinda reminds me of that scene in I, Robot.

Awesome story. I'm sure the UFC will use this in developing Reljic as a fan favorite.

Or cut him because he won't give them exclusive lifetime rights to the story...

Yes, Dana's already boiling over that the Croatian paper got the scoop before the UFC's website.
