UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz had another setback this past week when he underwent a second reconstructive knee surgery after his body started rejecting the cadaver ACL put in during a surgery this past summer.
Cruz had both his ACL and MCL replaced in his original surgery. There is talk it would be six months to a year before he could return.
After the Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson match fell apart, the original FX main event for Saturday night in Seattle, with Johnson suffering a groin injury, the new main event was scheduled as former TUF winner Michael Chiesa, from the Seattle area, against Marcus LeVesseur. However, Chiesa pulled out of the show yesterday due to an undisclosed illness. One would expect Jeremy Stephens vs. Yves Edwards to be moved to the TV main event slot.
