This has been a week full of UFC cuts and the list of released fighters has grown again today as featherweights Diego Nunes and Milton Vieira have been released from the promotion.

Diego ‘The Gun’ Nunes (18-4-0) is released from the promotion following a six fight spell in the promotion. He was predicted to accomplish big things in the UFC when he came over from the WEC with a 4-1 record in that promotion but failed to get going in the UFC. In his six fights in the UFC he alternated between the win and loss columns with each fight and most recently lost to Nik Lentz at UFC on FX 7 last month.

Milton Vieira (13-8-2) came to the UFC last year and fought for the promotion twice. He failed to get a single win in the promotion, drawing his first before falling to defeat this past January when he was on the wrong end of a split decision in his fight with Godofredo Castro at UFC on FX 7.

A lot have already been released and a lot more will receive the chop as around a hundred fighters more are to be removed from the company’s roster.

We at the Fight Lounge would like to wish all these fighters the best of luck in their future endevors.
