Carlos Condit

The former interim UFC welterweight and WEC champion Carlos Condit suffered a knee injury during in March with a loss to Tyron Woodley, and went under surgery to repair the damage that was done. He suffered a torn ACL and a partially torn meniscus in the fight with Woodley.

“I’m going to get that rematch,” Condit said. “Whether it’s my first fight back or it’s down the road, I’ll get that rematch. I want to rematch everybody I’ve lost to. I’m 2-0 in rematches in my career or something like that.”

“I’m definitely excited,” Condit said. “There’s a lot of excitement in the division right now and part of that is the guys I’m possibly going to be matched up against when I come back. It’s a good time to be involved in the division.”

I’m still trying to get that title belt. I still got some time to gain. I’m coming back better, I’m coming back stronger.”

Condit (29-8) has 14 knockouts, 13 submissions and 2 wins by decision victories. Prior to fighting GSP, he was on a five fight winning streak. He defeated Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald, Dan Hardy, Dong Hyun Kim and Nick Diaz to deserve the title shot. He lost against GSP at UFC 154 on Feb / 04 / 2012 via Unanimous Decision. He then lost against Johny Hendricks at UFC 158 – St. Pierre vs. Diaz on Mar / 16 / 2013 by decision. He then beat Martin Kampmann via TKO at UFC Fight Night – Condit vs. Kampmann 2 on Aug / 28 / 2013, but in his last fight lost against Woodley at UFC 171 in March.

Condit is eyeing a return for 2015.

All the best to Condit and we hope to see him inside the octagon in the near future.
