"JZ" Calvancante Out 3-4 Months With Torn ACL

Gesias “JZ” Calvancante will be out of action for an estimated 3-4 months after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee. The talented lightweight fighter, who trains with American Top Team, will undergo surgery to repair the injury, according to Sherdog.

Calvancante (14-2-1) was eliminated from the DREAM lightweight grand prix at DREAM 2 in late-April with a unanimous decision loss to Shinya Aoki in an opening round rematch after their first bout was prematurely halted following illegal elbow strikes by Calvancante. The loss was his first defeat in nearly four years.

“JZ” will be ringside at DREAM 5 for the lightweight grand prix finals in Osaka, Japan and expects to return to the promotion later this year, possibly against the winner of the lightweight tournament.

Hope this doesn't hinder his career.

A torn ACL is never good news. Hopefully JZ bounces back to his ass kicking ways.

Damn, let's hope JZ recovers well so he can get back to breaking faces and bullying great MMA BJJ fighters and stuff. I love the guy.

Wow, really bad news, even if he has succesful surgery his leg will probably never be the same . Let's hope he can still kick ass after this.

That sucks... at what point in the fight did it happen?

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.
