UFC 90: Silva vs. Côté was a mixed martial arts (MMA) pay-per-view event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on October 25, 2008 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.[2]

Background[edit]

A scheduled bout between Thales Leites and Goran Reljic was scratched from the card due to an injury suffered by Reljic. Drew McFedries was chosen as Reljic's replacement.[3]

Diego Sanchez suffered an injury while preparing for his bout against Thiago Alves and was forced to pull out. Josh Koscheck stepped in to fight instead.[4]

Melvin Guillard was slated to fight Spencer Fisher, but was replaced by Shannon Gugerty.
