Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

[INJURYCEPTION] Injured Champ Dominick Cruz Re-Injures Himself While Recovering From Injury, Now Out Most of 2013

(Dominick Cruz, seen here seconds after being made aware that Dominick Cruz had been injured yet again.) 

It just doesn’t end, you guys. It. Doesn’t. Fucking. End.

The insatiable injury curse of 2012 — seemingly fed up with claiming non-injured, active fighters — has somehow grown powerful enough to affect those who were already injured to begin with. NO, IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE.

And while the title may be a little misleading being that bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz didn’t truly re-injure himself, but rather failed to recuperate properly from the ACL injury that has kept him out of action since May, it looks like we won’t be seeing “The Dominator” dominating anything but a Domino’s delivery menu until late 2013 [WORDPLAY]. The newsbroke earlier today that the anterior cruciate ligament Cruz had replaced with that of a cadaver’s following his run on TUF 15 was rejected by his body, forcing the champ to undergo additional surgery in order repair/replace it.

“He’s pissed and disappointed,” remarked Cruz’s trainer Eric Del Fierro, echoing the sentiment of not only MMA fans around the world but that of MMA hack journalists such as myself.

I mean, I’m running out of ways to continue delivering bad news to you guys in this format. Creativity be damned; I feel like a World War 2 messenger at this point, just handing out notifications of death to the families of the deceased, trying to remain as emotionally unavailable as possible while little Jimmy Pocket and his Mom stare at me with tear-filled eyes. No Jimmy, your father isn’t coming home this Christmas. And that really awesome toy you wanted? You won’t be getting that either, because Santa never existed and now your Mom will have to pull double shifts at the diner and sell her body for money nightly just so you can eat canned hot dogs and stay off the street long enough to die with some dignity at age 7, when, following your Mom’s inevitable descent into cocaine and then full-on heroin addiction she’s since developed as a coping mechanism for being ravaged by the local charlatans and bottom-feeders day after day, she will fall asleep with a cigarette in her mouth and burn your house to the ground while you are dreaming of something, anything to remove you from the hellish nightmare your existence has become.

No word yet on whether or not Renan Barao will defend his title against Michael McDonald in Cruz’s absence, but we’re gonna guess…maybe?

Yes nothing quite like using the families of dead veterans under extreme downward spirals ending in death in a gutter to make a comedic point.
Couldn't find a kitten to drown this morning?

@12oz You might be right. Maybe Viva got a little too overzealous with it and it went right past Nathan and hit Dom - who was actually my first pick way back when. Not to worry though because I kicked him to the curb after he got injured the first time. :)

Doctor's suspected a problem with Cruz whenever someone lit a cigarette or candle near him and he started freaking out while yelling "FIRE BAD!"

That analogy hit a little too close to home.
My own mother is a heroin addicted whore, often being savaged by none other than dipsetkilla316 nightly.
Also what the fuck? No Santa? It's comments like that that make me reevaluate reading these articles and comments to the nursery kids at church

@Anhonestmoose HILLARIOUS....fucking classic!

Man i just love to read your creative way of delivering bad news. In fact, you are so good at it that when i read the story of Little Jimmy, I wanted to hack my leg off and use the bone from the compound fracture to stab my neck and bleed to death....but thats just me.

Yo dawg, I heard you liked injuries so I put an injury in your injury so you can not fight while you're not fighting.

When Xeno left, the injury curse began. Coincidence?
Methinks not.

As shitty as the curse is - I will take that trade everyday ;)

@angry little feet
I guess Viva's Verbal Voodoo went right past Nate Diaz and landed smack dab on Dom Cruz's cadaver knee. You're lucky it's December.
