The former interim UFC welterweight and WEC champion Carlos Condit suffered a knee injury during his March loss to Tyron Woodley, and went under surgery to repair the damage that was done. He suffered a torn ACL and a partially torn meniscus in the fight with Woodley.
He tweeted: “For all the people asking, the knee is healing really nicely,” he wrote. “Rehab is going great. No clue when I’ll compete again, though.”
While he is out of title contention his fellow welterweight has been battling it out, Robbie Lawler faces Jake Ellenberger at this Saturday’s UFC 173 and Rory MacDonald meets Tyron Woodley in the co-main event of UFC 174 in June, 2014.
Condit (29-8) has 14 knockouts, 13 submissions and 2 wins by decision victories. Prior to fighting GSP, he was on a five fight winning streak. He defeated Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald, Dan Hardy, Dong Hyun Kim and Nick Diaz to deserve the title shot. He lost against GSP at UFC 154 on Feb / 04 / 2012 via Unanimous Decision. He then lost against Johny Hendricks at UFC 158 – St. Pierre vs. Diaz on Mar / 16 / 2013 by decision. He then beat Martin Kampmann via TKO at UFC Fight Night – Condit vs. Kampmann 2 on Aug / 28 / 2013, but in his last fight lost against Woodley at UFC 171 in March.
All the best to Condit and we hope to see him inside the octagon in the near future.
For all the people asking, the knee is healing really nicely. Rehab is going great. No clue when I’ll compete again though.
