Brian Ebersole Reportedly Replaces Injured Carlos Condit, Fights Chris Lytle At UFC 127

The UFC 127 pay-per-view card has taken a significant hit. reported last night that Carlos Condit had suffered a knee injury and may have to withdraw from his fight against Chris Lytle. This morning, MMA Fighting confirmed it.

A mild knee injury has knocked Carlos Condit out of his scheduled UFC 127 fight with Chris Lytle, MMA FIghting has confirmed.

The injury is likely to keep Condit out of serious training for 5-6 weeks, his manager Malki Kawa told MMA Fighting.

Kawa said that Condit’s goal is to return to action in June.

Bummer. Before the injury, Chris Lytle told BE he wanted opponents that could propel him to a title shot against Georges St. Pierre, and Condit would have got him one step closer, but now he’ll just have to settle for a paycheck on Feb. 27. Instead of a high-profile opponent like Condit, is reporting that Lytle will face Brian Ebersole at UFC 127. No word yet if that bout will remain on the main card or be demoted to the prelims.
