Dominick Cruz undergoes surgery to repair damaged right handPosted on October 13, 2011, 10:32 PM by Trent Reinsmith
UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz sat through the recent UFC on Versus 6 post-fight press conference without revealing that he had broken his hand during his win over Demetrious Johnson. In fact, the only way the assembled media found out about the injury was when UFC President Dana White disclosed the damage to the select media he spoke to following the press conference.
On Wednesday, October 12, Cruz underwent surgery on the damaged right hand. Before going in for surgery, Cruz took time to explain exactly what the surgery would correct, "It's basically the exact same injury I had on my left hand. Same knuckle, same everything. The tendon is completely ripped off the bone and my finger is popping out of its socket due to that. And the knuckle just dislocates when I make a fist. I have to get that tendon that ripped reattached with surgery." – for more see ESPN.com.
Cruz is out of surgery and for updates (and post surgery photos) see his twitter feed.
There is currently no timetable for his return to the Octagon.
