Confirmed: Condit Tore ACL In UFC 171 Bout

March 19, 2014 7:45 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Last weekend’s UFC 171 co-main event between, Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley, ended prematurely when Condit fell to the mat suffering from an injured knee. (Replay HERE)

Up until tonight, we had no clue what the diagnosis was, but now in a statement on UFC Tonight, it appears as if he tore the ACL.

Here it is:

“According to Greg Jackson, Carlos Condit suffered a torn ACL and partially torn meniscus and he’ll be out for some time. Plus, Johny Hendricks has a cracked shin bone that will need several months to heal. I have a feeling the UFC will put the rest of the welterweights to work. Rory MacDonald would like to wait for a title shot. Gunner Nelson’s coach told me he’d like to fight next in Ireland, against Rory MacDonald. Rory’s manager said he’d probably not want to fight him.”
