3rd ranked Dominick Cruz is out of UFC 219 due to a broken arm. The news was first reported by Ariel Helwani on Twitter. The UFC is still determining what is next for his scheduled opponent, 5th ranked Jimmie Rivera. The UFC could keep Rivera on the card and find a replacement or scrap the fight all together.
Cruzis coming off a lopsided loss to former champ Cody Carbrandt at UFC 207. However, Riviera is coming off an impressive win over Thomas Almeida.
Let’s hope the UFC finds a replacement bout for Rivera soon.
