UFC 127: Carlos Condit withdraws from Chris Lytle fight due to knee injury

UFC welterweight Carlos Condit has reportedly withdrawn from his upcoming bout against Chris Lytle at the UFC 127: "Penn vs. Fitch" pay-per-view event on Feb. 26 in Sydney, Australia, after suffering a knee injury in training camp..
The incomparable Showdown Joe Ferraro brought word of the unfortunate news earlier today.
Condit (26-5) raised his stock considerably after pulverizing Dan Hardy at UFC 120 across the pond late last year. It was the third straight victory for the former WEC Welterweight Champion (and his second straight stoppage) and a win over Lytle could have made a strong argument for "The Natural Born Killer's" place among the current title contenders.
Unfortunately that opportunity will have to wait.
Lytle (30-17-5), who could be knocking on the contender's door himself, has seemingly gotten his second wind in the 170-pound division, winning four straight contests and racking up another collection of "Fight Night" bonuses.
