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.
