WEC champ Dominick Cruz underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a broken hand he sustained in his WEC 53 title defense against Scott Jorgenson on December 16. The Dominator will likely be sidelined for at least three months before he can resume training, which pushes his first UFC 135-pound title defense back until the summer.
Cruz tweeted a handful of photos from the hospital, including the first one after the jump taken hours after having pins inserted to hold his mangled third metacarpal on his left hand together.
Be forewarned that it ain’t pretty.
(Cruz doing his best Bruce Leroy.)
(Evidence in case he didn’t wake up from the discount surgery in Mexico.)
