Knee Injury Forces Carlos Condit Out of UFC 127 Fight With Chris Lytle

(Carlos Condit — huge John Cleese fan.)

After starching Dan Hardy at UFC 120, welterweight contender Carlos Condit was preparing to build on his momentum with another slugfest against Chris Lytle at UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch (February 26th; Sydney, Australia). Unfortunately, the Natural Born Killer has reportedly withdrawn thanks to a knee injury. Damn, it’s been a bad month for that sort of thing.

Though a replacement has yet to be formally announced, fightnewsaustralia.com is claiming that Brian Ebersole — a 44-15 American journeyman who currently competes and trains in Australia — will face Chris Lytle on the card. Ebersole has won his last seven fights, and holds victories over Matt Horwich, Nick Thompson, and Carlos Newton.

The current UFC 127 lineup is after the jump…

MAIN CARD

Jon Fitch vs. B.J. Penn (WW)

Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera (MW)

Dennis Siver vs. George Sotiropoulos (LW)

Chris Lytle vs. Brian Ebersole (WW, rumored)

Chris Camozzi vs. Kyle Noke (MW)

PRELIMINARY CARD

Spencer Fisher vs. Ross Pearson (LW)

Alexander Gustafsson vs. James Te Huna (LHW)

Nick Ring vs. Riki Fukuda (MW)

Mark Hunt vs. Chris Tuchscherer (HW)

Maciej Jewtuszko vs. Curt Warburton (LW)

Tom Blackledge vs. Anthony Perosh (LHW)

Jason Reinhardt vs. Zhang Tie Quan (FW)

Disappointed this fight ain't happening. Also not sure about the new format but atleast it still has that new comment section smell.

You put your right foot in, your right foot out, do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself about.
You put your left hook in, your left hook out, dude just KO'd Hardy and won the bout.

^ Yes I do it was horrible, back in the days of 213 son or whatever the fuck his name is. I'm guessing that guy either got a job or medicated himself...or worse. Can't forget our best friend CAPS LOCKS HAL either.
hooligun- February 10, 2011 at 9:42 am
do we have to log in like this every time?

if so, I will likely not bother...
danomite sux- February 10, 2011 at 9:38 am
No kidding, allowing people to comment without logging in is asking for trouble. We've been through this before.
danomite- February 10, 2011 at 9:32 am
seriously though, i hope this 'using whatever name you want thing' is temporary. Do you not remember how this evolved into everybody posting under someone else's name and saying stupid ass shit all the time?
jimbonics- February 10, 2011 at 9:28 am
350 bucks and danomite.com can be yours.

I hope this doesn't derail my mission to spread the word of Rampage Jackson.
danomite- February 10, 2011 at 9:23 am
What's up with this new comments section stuff? I need to take her for a spin: Shit Fuck Bitch Cock!

also, what's up with the email requirement? are we back to the old days when we could just post under what ever name we want? If so, let's all post under "TUF Guy"
GILL-uh-TEEN- February 10, 2011 at 9:23 am
Damn! Not again...
Jugger- February 10, 2011 at 9:17 am
Did that commercial just refer to Michael Bisping as an "explosive powerhouse"?

Somebody tell me I just misheard and that it actually said, "exposed powder-puff" or something.
LOKI- February 10, 2011 at 9:07 am
The only good thing about Condit KTFOing Hardy was R.D.J. in the audiance goin, "YEEEEEAAAAHHH!" between his heartbroken limey co-stars.
