He was beating ranked fighters, WTF are you talking about? His schedule is about as tough as they come and he was alternating wins. He just came off a big win.
Some serious Zuffa huggers on this board, can't even acknowledge mistakes by Zuffa since I guess they never make mistakes. Insane.
Dude, Mike Brown was shot when he fought Nunes and nobody actually believes that Bart Palaszewski is any good. No one here is saying that Nunes is an awful fighter, but he's the definition of mediocre. And in today's stacked featherweight division, he's really no big loss.
People are willing to acknowledge and call out Zuffa for actions and decisions they deem bad for business (which itself is another topic). All you need do is look to fan reaction over Sonnen vs. Jones, or the Jon Fitch release. But you're trying to make a big stink out of what is hardly a shocking or detrimental cut, and no one is going to buy into the hate mongering.
