Carlos Condit Says He Will Be Ready To Return To The UFC Next Year

It’s hard to believe that it has been seven months since Carlos Condit tore his ACL and meniscus in a fight against Tyron Woodley at UFC 171.

The good news is that it appears Condit is close to a full recovery.

“I’ve basically been cleared to start doing some sparring and training as long as it is light,” Condit told Bleacher Report. “I have to be cautious of anything explosive movement-wise or doing anything too quickly. I can run, hit mitts and do plenty of other things. I just can’t go 100 percent on anything yet.”

Condit lost the fight via a kick from Woodley to his knee and Condit hasn’t been the same since… until now.

“I can do jiu-jitsu from the ground but I have to be careful with explosive takedowns and things like that. All of my training partners have been great and know I’m not 100 percent right now, so they’ve been able to get their work in without putting my knee in danger.

“Right now, I’m looking at getting back into the cage in March or April. That’s the plan and I’m working hard to make that happen.”
