UFC 84: Wilson Gouveia vs. Goran Reljic

Gouveia Reljic UFC 84
Wilson Gouveia (10-4) will take on Octagon newcomer Goran Reljic (7-0) in a light heavyweight bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, according to

Gouveia flies relatively low in the stacked 205-pound division despite riding a four-fight win streak. He opened a few eyes with his knockout of Jason Lambert at UFC 80: "Rapid Fire" on January 19 -- not too shabby for the Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt who trains with American Top Team.

His only loss inside the Octagon is to Keith Jardine via unanimous decision back in 2006.

Reljic is a 23-year-old undefeated Croatian fighter who just recently signed a multiple-fight contract to compete inside the Octagon. He trains with the Roger Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in London, England, where he is a purple belt. In addition, he has a solid working relationship with UFC heavyweight fighter, Mirko Cro Cop.

It should be interesting to see how the young prospect performs against a tough veteran on the big stage in Sin City.

UFC 84 most likely features the championship fight between lightweight belt holder, BJ Penn, and former division king, Sean Sherk. To check out the rest of the rumored fight card click here -- it's solid.
