Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz can’t seem to catch a break.

GraciemagPromo_Xmas2014_webAfter two very serious injuries to his left knee that sidelined him for almost three years, he announced earlier today via his Twitter account that a new ACL injury just happened.

It’s now on his right knee.

Cruz wrote: “It is with great sadness to report I have experienced another ACL injury. This time it’s in the right knee, opposite side of my first and second ACL injuries. Leading up to my last fight in September and after, I have practiced a very careful and methodical training and diet regime to keep my body healthy. Unfortunately, this is beyond my understanding and control. I don’t have a timetable for my return but trust and know I will pour my heart and soul into returning to the Octagon. I want to thank the UFC, my fans and my sponsors ahead of time for your support and prayers. I appreciate you more than you could understand. I don’t have any other facts to share right now. I, along with my camp, respectfully request privacy at this difficult time. Thank You.”
