Dominick Cruz has another centipede growing out of hand. Or at least that what it looks like.

In actuality, Cruz underwent surgery yesterday on the hand he injured during the Demetrious Johnson fight. As he explained to ESPN, the crazy thing is it’s the same exact injury and surgery he had on his other hand earlier this year.

“It’s basically the exact same injury I had on my left hand,” Cruz said. “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.”

But the good news is it’s stronger than before!

“After I got the surgery on my left hand the doctor said it would be stronger. And it’s true. It is stronger,” Cruz said. “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.”
