Coach: Condit suffered meniscus tear


In the second round of his fight Saturday night vs. Tyron Woodley, Carlos Condit took a low kick, and then collapsed to the mat holding his other knee. The ref quickly stepped in, and Woodley was awarded the victory.

A short time before, Condit had winced visibly during a takedown, and held his knee, indicating that the injury had occurred previously to the kick that eventually stopped it.

Condit went to the hospital with his longtime trainer Mike Winkeljohn, who texted MMAJunkie that doctors diagnosed a small meniscus tear and a possibly torn ACL.

Condit will get an MRI to make a more definitive diagnosis. 

UFC interim welterweight has now won only one fight of his last four.

So many people are acting like Woodley was decimating Carlos and its so far from the truth. Sure he won the first round but it wasn't a 10 8 for christs sake. Sucked that he got injured, I have always been a very big fan and sucked for him to lose that way

I agree with your confidence sir. Condit is the shit, he ate all woodley had to offer, and then he started to push the pace. Amazing fighter.

Most likely an ACL injury. He'll be out for at least a year.

Agree, that's why contender type fights should be 5 rounds, main event or not.This assuming Condit-Woodley winner was supposed to get the next title shot.

Condit is one of my favourite fighters. Heart broken when I saw that happened. I wanted to see him right and beat Johny or Robbie over 5 rounds.
