Max Nunes 10-0

How good is he and should UFC sign him up soon ? I heard he sparred with Alexander Gustafsson and his physical build is similar to Jon Jones though Max is 1 year younger.

He did not look white to me but that is beside the point.

Saw Nunes on the last BAMMA show, he got clinched up and taken down at will by a very gassed-out opponent, he has good KO power but his ground game is shockingly terrible.

He definately has holes in his game but he could be a prospect. Guys that have great talents and holes are better to invite than well rounded ones that lack that extra. After all, we are looking for widening the top of the division and get more contenders that actually have a chance of beating the champions.

If most of them will fail along the way does not matter, better to get some new blood in.

He looks better than most Eastern European X-0 prospects, but there is still a lot to improve for him.

It's not his ground game he has skills off his back, his defensive wrestling is just unbelievably trash.

That said, he's better all around than Wagner Prado at least...the last complete failure of a "prospect"
