Manny Gamburyan was forced to pull out of his scheduled UFC 135 bout with Diego Nunes yesterday due to an injury, and it appears that no one is more disappointed than Diego himself. Nunes has apparently had issues with Gamburyan in the past that led him to actually request the matchup. He spoke to Tatame about it:

"It was a big surprise because I was really enjoying fighting this guy, with whom I have some unresolved issues with. I was sad because I really wanted it. From all fighters he's the one I still have unresolved issues with", stated Diego

The old Faber vs. Cruz storyline. Nice.

I'm sure they were joking about cutting off Nunes' finger, but I can't be the only fan of The Shield in here who instantly thought of how the Armenian mob did things.

sounds like a tv show "unresolved issues"


"It that on that time in Colorado, (Jose Aldo) Junior fought him and I fought a local guy (Tyler Toner). When we were giving autographs, I was a little distracted and signed it on Manny Gamburyan's head. A guy from UFC said ‘not here' and I apologized because I was not concentrated. When (Gamburyan) was going to sign it, he saw my signature on his forehead and said it was disrespectful. They told me they were going to cut my finger so I would learn. Ed Soares had a huge argue with him. Since that day we don't really like each other. Gamburyan says too much, so I wanted to see him actually doing it".


Seems like something minor to get upset about. People seem to make big deals of nothing somtimes.

It kind of seems like hyperbole to me. I doubt he was really going to cut his finger off. Like when you tell some one you're going to tear their head off.
