Carlos Condit: Knee Recovering, No Clue On Return To Action

carlos condit

The last time we saw Carlos Condit, the former interim UFC welterweight champion and ex-WEC champion needed help out of the Octagon. Condit suffered a knee injury during his March loss to Tyron Woodley, and subsequently underwent surgery to repair the damage that was done.

For now, Condit is rehabbing and working back towards fighting again. It’s just taking time, “The Natural Born Killer” posted on Twitter. He suffered a torn ACL and a partially torn meniscus in the fight with Woodley.

“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.”

Condit (29-8) turned 30 years old last month and is 6-3 in his last nine fights overall. Along with the loss to Woodley, he also dropped decisions to Johny Hendricks and Georges St-Pierre, the latter of which was to unify the UFC titles.

Despite his uncertainty in regards to a return fight, Condit remains ranked No. 4 at welterweight by the UFC. The division is headed by Hendricks, who won the title when he defeated Robbie Lawler earlier this year. Hendricks is also injured and sidelined, having had bicep surgery.

Other top contenders in the division have been paired off, as Rory MacDonald meets Woodley and Lawler faces Jake Ellenberger. Matt Brown and Hector Lombard have been rumored as possible future opponents for one another, as well.
