http://mmajunkie.com/news/28594/dominick-cruz-injured-forced-out-of-ufc-148-bout-with-urijah-faber.mma

I was dreading having to see this fight live as the main event for the 2nd straight 4th of July show.  Then they added Silva vs Sonnen which made my week, and now the Cruz - Faber fight is off altogether!!!   (Don't get me wrong, I hate to see either guy hurt, I just had no interest in seeing them fight for a 3rd time).

Rumour is that Faber will fight Mike McDonald for the interim title!!!

I hear ya on not needing to see another 5 rd decision fight.

My first thought was.... who gets the shot at the interim. Love to see how McDonald Fares

Faber and McDonald will be a good fight.  I would have to imagine that Faber would be a significant favourite...

Damn what a shame. I know his fights aren't always the most exciting but I'm a big fan of his. Hopefully he has a speedy/full recovery.

I hope it is not Barao, even though he probably deserves it even more than McDonald.  I am really looking forward to seeing Barao vs Menvijar...

I agree with you 100%.  I hate to see talented guys get hurt.  I am just so sick of Cruz vs Faber.  They have beat that "rivalry" to death.
