UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz has suffered an ACL injury and is out his UFC 148 title defense against rival Urijah Faber. The news was first broken by and has been confirmed by UFC President, Dana White. White tweeted “It’s true Cruz blew his ACL. Stay tuned for more info”

Cruz-Faber III was expected to serve as the co-main event at UFC 148 on July 7th, with Anderson Silva-Chael Sonnen’s rematch for the UFC Middleweight Championship headlining the monster card. Cruz and Faber are currently serving as coaches on the Ultimate Fighter Live. One would imagine that this week’s episode will include more information on Cruz’s injury. It’s currently unknown how long Cruz will be out or if Faber will get a replacement opponent.

Stay tuned to for more updates as we get them.
