Diego Nunes Leaves Nova Uniao In Pursuit Of Championship Gold | UFC NEWS

“I respected the people with whom I worked with at Nova União” said Nunes. “Independently of what I wanted though, I lowered my head there. There, Aldo was the champion really so I could never shout, ‘Oh! I am going to be a champion!’ Whenever I bow my head, I did it out of my heart in sincerity, I was never forced into anything. I took advantage of my time, but my time there is over. Now I’m on a team where people look at me and say, ‘Diego, you will be the champion. Let’s make you a champion.’ Thanks to Nova União because if I had not been there maybe I would not here today.”

As a UFC featherweight fighter, it must be hard living your daily life under the shadow of Jose Aldo. Which is why, according to this interview, Diego Nunes has moved camps to the popular X-Gym.

Smart Move?

    I think in a personal standpoint for Diego Nunes, this is a smart decision. Everything that he had done in regards to leaving Nova Uniao was well done and very tasteful as to not burn any bridges with his old team. Obviously we do not know the extent of his relationships with the team and the teammates that he had there, as there could be an underlying story as to why he left, but in the end you must do what you think is right for yourself.
