UFC welterweight Carlos Condit was diagnosed with a torn ACL and partially torn meniscus in his right knee, following an MRI on Wednesday. The 30-year-old will require surgery.

Condit (29-8) suffered the injuries in a second-round TKO loss to Tyron Woodley at UFC 171 last weekend in Dallas.

It appeared he initially suffered an injury while trying to defend a takedown. He was later unable to continue, after a leg kick by Woodley spun him around awkwardly on the right leg.

Condit's manager, Malki Kawa, confirmed the injuries to ESPN.com. An official date for the operation has not been scheduled.

A former No. 1 welterweight contender, Condit is 1-3 in his past four fights. He came up short in a title bid against Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154 in November 2012. He fights out of Albuquerque, N.M.
