UFC Welterweight Carlos Condit

On this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” it was announced former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (pictured) suffered a torn ACL and partially torn meniscus in his UFC 171 loss to Tyron Woodley this past Saturday.

Reporter Ariel Helwani confirmed Condit’s injury with his longtime coach, Greg Jackson.

Condit will undergo surgery to repair his right knee, but it is unknown when that will take place.

Woodley took the first round on the strength of some solid punches and a couple of takedowns. Speaking of takedowns, when he planted Condit on his back in the second stanza, “The Natural Born Killer” noticeably winced as though something was seriously out of whack.

After fighting to get back to his feet, we quickly discovered what it was. Woodley immediately kicked him in the left knee, which caused Condit to put all of his weight on his right leg. Condit instantly collapsed to the canvas grasping his right knee and the scrap was called.

After beating Nick Diaz to capture the interim welterweight crown at UFC 143, Condit has since lost three of his past four fights.
