Breaking News – Dominick Cruz Out of UFC 148 Due To ACL Tear [Updated]


Phyte Gurus initially reported, and was eventually confirmed by other sources including MMA Junkie, that UFC Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is out of UFC 148 with an ACL Tear.

The UFC has not, nor has Cruz’s people or Cruz himself, confirmed the injury as of yet but several websites have confirmed the injury. No knowledge to the severity of the injury, or whether or not it officially was an ACL tear or another form of knee injury, has been confirmed either.

We’ll have more as it breaks.

UPDATE: Dana White just confirmed Cruz blew out his ACL via his twitter feed.

Second Update: Apparently Cruz was hurt last Thursday, a handful of outlets reporting that it was during a practice but again nothing confirmed.
