Dominick Cruz injury update: 'The Dominator' tweets post-surgery photo of mangled hand (Pic)

No, this isn't the poster to "The Human Centipede 2."

Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz shredded his hand in the main event of UFC on Versus 6, where he successfully defended his 135-pound title against Demetrious Johnson at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., back on Oct. 1, 2011.

"The Dominator" explains the injury to ESPN.com:

"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. After I got the surgery on my left hand the doctor said it would be stronger. And it's true. It is stronger. He put an extra piece of tendon over the top of the knuckle so it's braced for impact. He did some voodoo stuff with it that he drilled a hole through the knuckle and tied it so tight that there's no way for that tendon to lift back up off the bone again. I really feel like it's stronger than it was in the first place and I won't have any issues with it anymore."

Cruz is on the shelf until 2012 when he will likely defend his bantamweight crown against the winner of Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles, who are scheduled to hook 'em up at the UFC 139 pay-per-view event next month in San Jose.

I'm trying to picture how to hurt both hands like that while punching, but I can't do it.

Has anyone else ever had an injury exactly like that?

Everyone is breaking their hands these days. It's obviously not a coincidence at this point. Phone Post

HELWIG -  odd injury to have repeat

dude is obviously prone to it...both hands done and not better...don't think it'll repeat based on how it is fixed.

The incision for the new injury (right hand) is shorter than the left hand's incision. That's not gonna be a coincidence.

The new incision is long enough to do a sagittal band repair but probably wouldn't be useful for fixing a fracture. Most fractures in the region under the incision are non-op. "Surgical" metacarpal fractures are usually shaft or base of the metacarpal fractures, both of which would not be accessible through that incision.

The old incision is longer, allowing access to the whole metacarpal and the distal carpal row. This more likely would have been used for a fracture.

So yeah, he probably had two different injuries/surgeries.

Has he had this kind of surgery twice on one hand? I thought this was his first surgery on the right (?) hand.
