The Rizin Fighting Federation light heavyweight Grand-Prix continues to fill up with the confirmation that Goran Reljić will represent KSW as well as Teodoras Aukštuolis  representing Bushido Lithuania

It was just last night that Nobuyuki Sakakibara confirmed the news regarding Reljić on his Twitter account.

The signing of Lithuania’s Aukštuolis was also announced by Sakakibara on twitter.


Reljić (15-5) is a veteran of the UFC and a former KSW light heavyweight champion. In his most recent outing he lost the title to Tomasz Narkun by way of TKO in round one on October 31. Reljić previously beat Narkun by decision in December of last year. Before this he won the vacant title by defeating former Bellator champion Attila Vegh.

Aukštuolis (6-2) has only had one MMA fight since November of 2012, beating Krzysztof ‘Chińczyk’ Pietraszek in April of this year. He has primarily competed in kickboxing during his hiatus from MMA.

Also announced a few weeks back was the addition of King Mo in the tournament. He will represent Bellator.
