I was where I was with this and I just had to accept it. I had to stay focused on getting back. Honestly, I kind of felt in a weird way lucky because it was 12 years into my career that this happened. It could have happened a long time ago and really set me back,” Condit said. “At least I’ve accomplished quite a bit in the sport before this happened and ultimately something like this is inevitable in a sport like MMA.”
Despite this he feels good and fully recovered and is more than ready for his upcoming fight with Thiago “Pitbull” Alves on UFC Fight Night 67
