How to take off this faucet?

I have changed like 6 faucets already but I really don't know how to take off this one. I have taken pictures from underneath. It looks very weird, I couldn't find a nut underneath or anything.

That's a three hole sink. Under the sink...... in the center hole..... is a plate that bridges across the hole with a nut on it.

If you don't want to cut it off, I'm pretty sure the nut/threaded rod is removed from the top.
Spray the nut with penetrating oil. The top of the threaded rod should be accessible through the top hole in the spout.
Unscrew it with a hex key wrench (allen wrench).

The valves are unsecured by either removing a thin flat nut or a retaining ring.

I ended up unscrewing the sprout with hex key from the top hole. Took off the sprout and two handles. The two nuts under the handles actually secured the faucet, I unscrewed the left, the right was corroded so I hard to cut it.

The nut from underneath was very corroded, and I couldn't confirm whether if it was a nut. Anyways u gotta take off this faucet from the top. Will post a pic of the underneath part when I have cleaned it.

It turns out that there isn't a nut from underneath.
