Gamburyan vs. Nunes Wiki Update Wiki

The opening bout of UFC 141 featured Manvel Gamburyan taking on Diego Nunes in a featherweight matchup.


Nunes landed a low kick to begin the fight and circled away from Gamburyan. Gamburyan countered the next low kick with a right hand that didn't connect cleanly. Nunes continued to utilize a kick-oriented attack, spinning with wheel kicks, slipping to the ground at one point during his flashy moves. Nunes stuffed and sprawled out of a takedown attempt and again landed a low kick. Gamburyan was able to lift Nunes up and plant him on the canvas on his second attempt, with two minutes remaining in the round. Nunes escaped to his feet, missed with a spinning kick, then landed a low kick. A nice left to the body set up a combination that finished with a low kick by Nunes, in what was a strong opening round for the Brazilian.


Nunes attempted to anticipate a takedown by throwing a knee that missed, and then was caught with a big punch from Gamburyan that had him rocked moving backwards. Nunes seemed to recover quickly but was in the clinch and fighting to avoid being taken down. Nunes escaped to range after a struggle and threw a spinning back kick to the body. The fighters opened up in a big exchange and Gamburyan got Nunes onto his back, into side control. Nunes made his way back up after a minute on his back. Gamburyan missed on a judo throw, giving Nunes an opening for some good punches and knees in the thai clinch, but it did not appear to be enough to get the round back in his favor.


Gamburyan landed a right hand early in third, then ate another low kick from Nunes. Nunes did not appear to be as aggressive as in earlier in the fight, and either fighter looked to be capable of earning the decision. Nunes sprawled out of a takedown and started to gain a slight edge again in the striking exchanges, with Gamburyan wildly missing on a double leg. Nunes whiffed on a spinning back fist, giving Gamburyan an opportunity for a takedown but was sprawled out by Nunes. An exciting final 30 seconds saw both fighters gain a final edge in a very close fight.


The judges all scored the bout 29-28 for Diego Nunes, the winner by unanimous decision. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Nunes commented in Portuguese through his translator, "It's a great challenge to fight against top guys like Manny Gamburyan, and there were some pre-fight confusion where he didn't mean any disrespect to Manny Gamburyan who is a great fighter."
