Nunes is 3-3 in the UFC overall & 1-2 in his last 3 fights. He has not won back-to-back fights in the UFC. And every time he takes a step up in competition, he loses. I am not surprised by the decision to cut him.
He hasn't lost back to back fights either. He beat former Champ MTB, former contender Manny and Bart who has been "in the mix" forever. He had a close fight with Kenny and is still a legit top 10 fighter. This is a total BS move.
