The losers' aftermath from UFC 122 has officially begun, and first to get Das Boot is Goran Reljic. Sources close to the situation have confirmed that Reljic has been released by UFC following a decision loss to Krzyzstof Soszynski, his 3rd loss in a row after starting his career 8-0. He was 1-3 in UFC but lost the better part of 2 years to a back injury that kept him out until this February.

He should cut down to 185. He's always dwarfed by the LHW's in the UFC.

I think it is smart to get guys like Reljic out of the mix in order to make room for the exciting FWs and BWs.

Give me a guy like Eddie Wineland over Goran any day.

He's not a bad fighter, not bad at all. But with his injuries and weight challenge, the UFC is just too tough in competition for him to figure himself out. He should move over to Bellator and find his groove.

Being off almost 2 years sure didn't help
Needs a few wins.

Really? He looked terrible at 185... He's a 225 pound man. He was 0-2 at 185, and 1-1 at LHW.

The guy is a hero he saved a couple of lives a couple of years ago if i remember correctly that had a part in his injury. He looked great against gouviea and he will be back as a contender.
