Massive fight for Lentz at FW after only one win and if he takes Nunes(big if), then he's immediately in the contendership mix, however being an accomplished wrestler, Lentz could very well ride this one out.
Personally, I think Lentz should've been mixed against somebody a little lower ranked, such as Manny, Yahya, Do Bronx II or Peralta, whereas I think Nunes would be better suited against a Zombie, Swanson or Hioki.
I've noticed a really weird theme of odd matchups at FW in the past few months. For example, I don't see much sense in Siver/Yagin, Mendes/Dias, to a lesser extent Brookins/Poirier and even think Lamas/Koch is a weird matchup given Lamas's hot hand. IMO, Mendes, Lamas and Nunes are among the tops of the division and I don't really get these matchups.
