BREAKING: Dominick Cruz Tears ACL, Out of UFC 148 Title Fight With Faber

(UFC bantamweight Dominick Cruz | Scott Hirano Low Kick)

Well, that sucks. Dana White has tweeted that Dominick Cruz is out of his UFC 148 title defense against TUF 15 opposing coach and arch nemesis Urijah Faber because of a torn ACL. “It’s true Cruz blew his ACL. Stay tuned for more info” White tweeted just a few minutes ago.

The bout was set to be a rubber match between Faber and Cruz. Faber choked Cruz out in 2007 when they were both featherweights back at WEC 26. Last summer, the bantamweight champ Cruz beat Faber via decision in a wild brawl at UFC 132. The two are coaching opposite one another on this season’s TUF Live. As if the ratings weren’t poor enough already.

As we know, ACL injuries take a long time to heal. Is it too early to talk about an interim title? What do you want to see happen with Faber and the bantamweight belt now, nation?

- Elias Cepeda

Suck it up Dominick! Everyone fights injured. I'm sick of all these excuses.

Are they going to kick Cruz off the show like they did with Tito because he can't fight at the end?

Its so disappointing that Cruz got hurt, the rubber match would have been amazing. Faber was on such a tear lately. The UFC has to pair Faber up with Barao now to set up the next title contender. Not sure if Barao is ready for Faber but now is as good a time as ever.

Seriously this is sad. How are people going to sit there and say Give the belt to Faber. Fuck that make an Interm belt and finish out this Tuf Season. Pick a replacement fight for him I think we should give Renan BArao his shot. Make it happen Bald Father.. Make it fucking Happen

Should make Friday's show interesting even though no one will be watching.

Just give the belt to Faber. Completely unfair, but it would be hilarious to see Cruz's reaction.

Move over Menjivar, Barao vs Faber is the fight to make.

Urijah Faber vs Michael McDonald for the interim title...make it happen Joe Silva!

good call

Huh? Won't Faber kill this guy? I mean literally.
Fried Taco- May 7, 2012 at 1:45 pm
What a pussy! Inject some "tetra mix" and fight anyway!

So bring back the Bisping VS Boetsch fight to the 148 card. Total bummer. Now the Faber vs ???? has to be for the interim title right? Cause Cruz is out for the next 9-15 months.

BTW, I really hope it happend on-camera during TUF training sessions. Not that I wish injury on anybody but TUF needs something to elevate ratings. I'm just not sure a UFC champ shredding his knee is must-see TV.

Faber Vs. Frankie Edgar. DO IT.
