Diego Nunes is looking to get his career back on track after dropping a decision to Kenny Florian at UFC 131. Despite losing the fight, Nunes made a statement by hurting Florian badly twice during the fight. Even with the loss Diego has gone a combined 5-2 in the WEC and UFC but has gone to the scorecards in all seven fights after having gotten stoppage wins in all 11 prior career fights.
Diego now faces Manny Gamburyan in what has developed into a bit of a grudge match. In a short interview for the UFC, Diego talks about his gameplan for their UFC 141 bout:
From the video:
"To beat Manny will be only joy. I'm very focused, determined, with blood in my eyes. I only see him in front of me. I go to sleep and I wake up thinking of him. I'm aiming for the knockout, I'm aiming for his chin. No matter where this fight goes, I'll finish him, either by knockout or submission."
