Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit will be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a knee injury in his UFC 171 defeat to Tyron Woodley.

UFC 171 took place March 15 at American Airlines Arena in Dallas and was headlined by Johny Hendricks’ hard-fought victory over Robbie Lawler to capture the vacant welterweight title live on pay-per-view.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation recently released the show’s medical suspensions, revealing that Hendricks will be sidelined until March 31, while Lawler must sit out until April 15.

In addition to Condit, undercard competitors Jim Hettes and Robert Whiteford were also handed indefinite suspensions pending medical clearance. While Whiteford scored a unanimous decision victory over Daniel Pineda to open the show, Hettes was less successful, suffering a third-round technical knockout to Dennis Bermudez.
