Croatian striking star Zelg Galesic will likely be forced to miss his DREAM 8 bout against Andrews Nakahara after his pre-fight blood work caused him to fail his medical. Index.hr is reporting that Galesic was on a strict diet to lose some extra weight before the fight and that the poor blood test results were likely due to overtraining and exhaustion.
According to the report, Galesic has been admitted to a hospital and will remain there for up to a week, though that is unconfirmed at this point. Galesic's last bout took place in September of 2008 when he lost to Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in the DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix semifinals. He competed recently in a tae kwon do tournament in Croatia and suffered a broken leg during his fight, leading to a three-month layoff.

Well thats pretty shitty. Nakahara vs Zelg was probably gonna be a good mid card fight. Anybody got any ideas for a replacement assuming Zelg isn't able to compete??
