Michael Chiesa and Anthony Pettis are ready to try this again. The two lightweights have been rebooked to fight at UFC 226, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to MMAjunkie. The person requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an announcement.  MMAFighting.com was first to report the news. UFC 226 takes place July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1. Chiesa (14-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) and Pettis (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) originally were set to meet at UFC 223 earlier this month, but the bout fell apart after Conor McGregor’s alleged assault at the end of media day . McGregor was caught on video throwing a dolly through the window of a bus carrying UFC 223 fighters, including Chiesa.
