Goran Reljic -- after a long lay off and back surgery -- is reportedly set to return to action against CB Dolloway at UFC 110 from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Feb. 21, 2010, according to MMAMadness.com.
Reljic is a very promising young talent -- he is the protege of the legendary Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. The Croatian made his UFC debut at UFC 84 in May 2008, upsetting a game Wilson Goveia via second round technical knockout (strikes).
However, he sustained a back injury shortly thereafter that has kept him out of action ever since. If healthy, Reljic has the talent and promise to rise to contender status in no time.
Dolloway is coming off a recent submission loss to Tom Lawler at UFC 100. After an impressive stint on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Dolloway has had an up-and-down tenure inside the Octagon. He is taking on a very dangerous opponent in Reljic in a fight where he should be a significant underdog.
UFC 110 is expected to feature a heavyweight showdown between Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira and Cain Velasquez to determine the next number one division contender. In addition, a 185-pound brawl between Michael Bisping and Wanderlei Silva in a bout that may have future title implications is also expected to fill out the top of the card.
