Undefeated Max Nunes In No Rush To Join The UFC

Max Nunes (9-0) is currently on a streak that few have in the opening stages of their career. Since Nunes turned professional in 2011, he has won all nine of his fights and finished all his opponents. Only one fight has gone into the second round. The win streak has Nunes even shocked.

“So far it’s gone much better than I thought,” said Nunes to Nordic MMA. “I’m surprised I keep winning like I do. I keep thinking the fight will be much harder than it really is. It’s such a relief to go in there and not get injured. The more I win, the more pressure there is as the people expect me to win.”

In 2012, Nunes was able to secure six wins in the span of nine months. He competed mostly out of UCMMA and BAMMA.

Nunes has plans to join the UFC, but is in no rush. He looks to improve on his wrestling and striking before possibly heading to the UFC as he knows one loss could be the end.

“There are a lot of people who get there and have a short career,” said Nunes. “I want to get there and be there for a long time.”

Nunes is currently set to continue fighting out of BAMMA, but has no new opponent. He is working on a contract with the promotion.
