It was reported earlier today that Dominick Cruz has torn his ACL and will be forced to back out of his fight July 7th against Urijah Faber. The two have shared a lot of bad blood in the past which has escalated since the start of this season of TUF. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say I really wanted to see these two fight for a third time. There’s no word yet if Faber will fight a new opponent for the interim Bantamweight title, or wait until Cruz is healthy enough to fight. We’ll find out more throughout the week but I don’t see any way Cruz wouldn’t stay and continue working with his team, even if a surgery was involved. Dana White has yet to say much except a short message via his twitter saying “It’s true Cruz blew his ACL. Stay tuned for more info.” Later on Cruz sent out a message himself saying “I’m bummed people, Thanx for the support as I battle this. Big sorry to all the fans out there! I WILL recover and I WILL be back to put on a show!” How ever you feel about Dominick Cruz you never want to see an athlete get hurt, and you would never wish an injury on anyone. Hopefully he has a quick recovery and is back in the cage soon. I’ll update everyone as more information comes out this week.
