Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender, Carlos Condit, is "healing nicely" following knee surgery, but still cannot guesstimate as to when he'll make his Octagon return, according to an injury update he recently provided on Twitter.
For all the people asking, the knee is healing really nicely. Rehab is going great. No clue when I'll compete again though.— Carlos Condit (@CarlosCondit) May 8, 2014
Condit suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and partially torn meniscus during his UFC 171 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event fight against Tyron Woodley, which took place back on March 15, 2014 inside the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas.
More on that here.
His loss to "The Chosen One" continued a string of tough defeats and left him at just 1-3 inside the cage since outpointing Nick Diaz back in 2012. That's likely to make him anxious to return, but unfortunately, an injury of that magnitude could leave him benched for up to a year (just ask this guy).
But that won't stop him from trying to expedite the process.
One Condit, two cups.
Despite his "inactivity," Condit remains ranked in the top five of the welterweight division. He's likely to be passed over by other contenders (like this brawler) during his time on the injured reserves, but will undoubtedly pick up right where he left off in 2015.
Any potential opponents come to mind?
