As you can expect to read often over the next several weeks, more fighters have been released from the UFC. Brazilian featherweights Diego Nunes and Milton Vieira are the latest cut casualties. MMA Opinion tweeted the news earlier today:

always liked nunes. after the fitch cut, none of the following cuts really need to be explained, i guess. if you're willing to cut a top 10 ww, all others just kind of fall in line

Sucks nunes got cut

I don't know why Ufc wanted so badly to own wec and take 3/4 the strikeforce guys just to go ahead and cut about 25% if your total fighters. I really hope a organization comes and scopes them all up

Bellator would be crazy not to go for Nunes. He'd fit in very well in their FW division.

I liked Nunes.

They're making some pretty drastic decisions with these cuts.

11 straight decision wins/losses. This is a message...

Sucks :(, I really hope this trend doesn't continue. Although Nunes went to decision all of his fights are pretty good minus the last one but sometimes one guy is just better, imo he really shouldn't be cut. Milton Vieira also got robbed imo in his last fight, sucks to see him go as well
