Dominick Cruz’s Return to the UFC Delayed Due to Second ACL Surgery
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.03.2012



According to mmajunkie.com, Dominick Cruz underwent another major knee surgery this past week, which will further delay his return to the octagon. Trainer Eric Del Fierro explained that Cruz's ACL was replaced after his body rejected one from a cadaver. At this time, it is estimated that it could set the fighter back another six to nine months.

Cruz underwent corrective surgery in June after tearing his ACL in preparation for a rematch with Urijah Faber. Cruz's ACL was replaced, as well as his MCL, which had been torn prior to a fight with Charlie Valencia in 2008. Following several months of recovery, the MCL held while the ACL did not. Cruz has been hoping to return to action in early 2013.
