Gamburyan vs. Nunes added to UFC 135

July 23, 2011

Two more bouts have been added to the UFC 135 fight card in Denver.

UFC officials on Friday announced that Diego Nunes will fight Manny Gamburyan in a featherweight tilt, while Cole Escovedo and Takeya Mizugaki face off at bantamweight.

Gamburyan (11-6) could be fighting for his spot in the Octagon, entering the fight with Nunes coming off of back-to-back losses. The No. 8 ranked featherweight started off strong before running into Jose Aldo and Tyson Griffin, reeling off three consecutive victories upon dropping from 155 down to 145 pounds.

He’ll now attempt to redeem himself against Nunes (16-2), who is coming off of a loss to Kenny Florian at UFC 131. Ranked No. 9 in the world, Nunes had been on a three-fight streak before Florian’s featherweight debut put him on the wrong end of a unanimous decision.
