UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz has pulled out of the UFC 148 event due to a knee injury. He was scheduled to defend his championship against Urijah Faber at the event on July 7. For more on the story, visit

Powell's POV: There's no word yet as to whether Faber will meet a replacement fighter at UFC 148. The story notes that Cruz suffered what is believed to be an ACL injury while training his team for The Ultimate Fighter reality show. The show is headlined by Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen and has a loaded lineup, so UFC shouldn't suffer too much in terms of pay-per-view buys, but it is a big disappointment nonetheless.
