A featherweight battle between two guys that apparently don't like each other has been re-added to the schedule. Diego Nunes and Manny Gamburyan had been scheduled to face off before at UFC 135, but it didn't end up happening. Well, it's back on for UFC 141 according to UFC.com:
Nunes had asked for this fight originally due to "unresolved issues" between the two:
"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 (taking the fight)".
Nunes hasn't fought since his decision loss to Kenny Florian at UFC 131, while Gamburyan is coming off a loss to Tyson Griffin at UFC on Versus 4 in June. The UFC 141 card will be main-evented by a heavyweight bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.
