Dominick Cruz not ruling out 2015 return

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz could easily be described as one of the best pound for pound athletes in the promotion at the moment – if only his body would take the hammering it required.

Cruz, who has a record of 20-1 in Mixed Martial Arts and unbeaten in three fights in the UFC, is on a streak of eleven wins on the trot, some of them over the biggest names in the sport. Unfortunately, a series of knee injuries and complications in the surgery process has limited him to just one fight since October 2011.

While many expected ring rust to take a huge toll on the Mexican American fighter upon his return to the UFC against Takeya Mizugaki, Cruz went on the rampage and stopped the Japanese in the very first round. He was set to take on TJ Dillashaw for a crack at the UFC Bantamweight Championship but as luck would have it, Dominick Cruz suffered yet another ACL tear which sidelined him for the next few months at least.

However, now Cruz has said that he could return to action sooner than expected, even indicating that a return in 2015 is not completely off the table, which would be quite a miracle. (more…)

Dominick Cruz suffers yet another ACL injury

To call former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz as the unluckiest fighter in the history of the UFC is putting it mildly. The Mexican – American, who missed more than two years of action due to an ACL injury, has been sidelined again for an indefinite period.

Writing on his Facebook account, Cruz said that he has suffered yet another setback with injury which is set to put him on the shelf for an undetermined amount of time, as of now. This time, it is an anterior cruciate ligament injury on his right knee.

Cruz wrote that he has to tell his fans with great sadness that he has suffered yet another ACL injury, adding that this time; it is on his right knee, opposite to his first and second ACL injuries. He admitted that leading up to his last fight that was in September 2014, he has trained very carefully and methodically and ensured his diet was at par to keep his body healthy. (more…)
