Just hours after No. 1 UFC bantamweight contender Dominick Cruz announced that he will spend much of 2015 on the sidelines with a knee injury, Raphael Assuncao has joined him.

Assuncao, who was passed over for T.J. Dillashaw earlier this year due to an injury, sent out a message on Twitter that he suffered a broken ankle in training and will also be shelved.

The Brazilian (23-4) has won seven of eight inside the Octagon, including a win over current champion T.J. Dillashaw.
