Goran Reljic made his UFC debut as a Light Heavyweight and looked very good. He appeared well suited to fighting at 205 lbs. For whatever reasons, he has decided the Middleweight Division is a better place for him. In a Sherdog article, he said, "I will physically be the biggest fighter in the whole division for sure." UFC's Light Heavyweight Division is the best weight class in all of MMA. As a relatively new fighter, Reljic might have thought it was better for him to drop down to Middleweight, where there is less depth and more opportunities for him to shine. Either way, I think Reljic will be successful. His striking is already at a title contender level. If he can get his other skills in line with it, he will make some serious noise at 185 lbs.
