There’s nothing worse than seeing a guy in his prime getting chopped down by injuries, but it feels like with Dominick Cruz that is exactly what is happening. Dominick once sat as the king of the Bantamweight division before troubles with his left ACL began, sidelining him for an extraordinary amount of time. He finally made his return in September and now the bad news has surfaced that Cruz has injured his right ACL.“It is with great sadness to report I have experienced another ACL injury. This time it’s in the right knee, opposite side of my first and second ACL injuries. Leading up to my last fight in September and after, I have practiced a very careful and methodical training and diet regime to keep my body healthy. Unfortunately, this is beyond my understanding and control. I don’t have a timetable for my return but trust and know I will pour my heart and soul into returning to the Octagon. I want to thank the UFC, my fans and my sponsors ahead of time for your support and prayers. I appreciate you more than you could understand. I don’t have any other facts to share right now. I, along with my camp, respectfully request privacy at this difficult time. Thank You.”
There’s no way around it, this is a huge bummer for Cruz and all of his fans. That’s a pretty shitty thing to happen right around the holidays, isn’t it?
