It was a proud day at the American Kickboxing Academy as team captain, Daniel Cormier, announced Dominick Cruz as the latest honorary member to join their ranks.
“Dominick has had one of hell of an impressive run of injuries, quite possibly the highest number of injuries outside of the AKA training halls which is no easy feat,” said the Daddest man on the planet. As he made this announcement, Cain Velasquez – a former UFC fighter who last fought uninjured um… ah… some time ago – began to applaud the announcement before throwing his shoulder out from the effort.
“Luke Rockhold, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Cain Velasquez – AKA has seriously messed up a number of UFC cards with injuries. Hey Luke, remember that time before the Weidman rematch when you broke your nose, sprained your right knee, and had an infection in your left shin all at the same time? Good times,” laughed Daniel and Luke, before Luke fractured three ribs from giggling.
“But seriously ya’ll, it’s not easy to tear your ACL twice, your groin, get tendinitis, break your arm, and now tear your shoulder all in the space of six years. Well done champ,” clapped Daniel and the team.
Stepping onto the mat, Dominick took two steps before twisting his ankle and needing several weeks to recover before he could even think about walking again. His next scheduled fight is sometime in the coming decade.
