June 4th, 2014 by admin

Former interim Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Welterweight champion Carlos Condit has been handed a suspension for an indefinite period on medical grounds after he tore his MCL while fighting at UFC 171 this past month, according to a statement released by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation or TDLR.

The Natural Born Killer also partially tore the right meniscus on his knee and has undergone surgery to repair the damage.

According to the statement released by the governing body, Condit, who has already undergone a successful surgery, will remain on the sidelines until the doctors give him the green signal to resume training and return to the sport.

Carlos Condit suffered the injury during his second round defeat at the hands of Tyron Woodley, with the referee stopping the fight and awarding the fight to Woodley on technical knockout after Condit fell down clutching his knee midway through the round.

And in news that is sure to please the UFC and Mixed Martial Arts fans, former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has offered his help to Condit during the rehabilitation process.

According to Greg Jackson, the former trainer of the Canadian, as soon as he heard the news about Condit injuring his knee, the same injury that he sustained which sidelined him for almost a year back in 2011, GSP got on the phone with him and offered to help Carlos Condit with his injury.

Jackson said that Rush told him that he knows how this thing works and he will have a talk with Carlos and help him out. The two of then broke down how to approach it but now, GSP has sustained an injury himself and will require rehab and Jackson thinks the two could go into rehab together because of the similar nature of the injury.

Condit knows Woodley is a difficult opponent

March 11th, 2014 by admin

Many people still believe former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s interim Welterweight champion Carlos Condit should have been given a chance to take on Johnny Hendricks at UFC 171 in a rematch of their 2013 fight for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship belt.

Instead, the UFC offered Robbie Lawler the chance to take Hendricks on and Condit had to contend with a match against Tyron Woodley, on the same night as he prepares himself to prove his credentials once again against someone who is already being seen as the future of the division.

Speaking to a media outlet, Condit mentioned that Woodley is a great wrestler, adding that he has a brilliant background in amateur wrestling and he has transitioned well into becoming a Mixed Martial Artist.

Carlos Condit went on to add that Woodley has a lot of depth thanks to his skills in wrestling, but admitted that he is still very raw in the sport but he is still great at a few things and the things he does well are extremely dangerous too.

And Condit knows how important that match is for him, as he knows a win could directly place him in a UFC Welterweight Championship match against the winner of the Hendricks versus Lawler bout. That is his aim and he knows he has to take care of Woodley to achieve that.

And he admitted that the first thing is he has to take care of the job on hand at first and get past Woodley, which will be a difficult task in itself. Carlos Condit that a title shot is what he is gunning for and he is looking forward to getting on a run that will put him in a position to ask for a shot at the UFC Welterweight Championship again.
