The last few years, UFC lightweight contender Michael Chiesa’s career largely has been defined by a series unfortunate events. That includes Conor McGregor’s alleged attack on a bus in Brooklyn in April. McGregor is charged with felony criminal mischief in the attack, when a construction dolly was tossed at a bus window, cutting Chiesa and forcing him out of a scheduled bout against former champ Anthony Pettis.

The rescheduled bout against Pettis is set for Saturday at T-Mobile Arena at UFC 226, part of a pay-per-view card headlined by a heavyweight title bout between champion Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier. But Michael Chiesa failed to make weight and now has to forfeit 30% of his purse as fine.

Immediately after getting dressed, Chiesa announced that this will be his last fight competing at lightweight after what appeared to be a very difficult weight cut leading into Friday.

“This will be my last fight at 155,” Chiesa said while looking despondent on the scale after failing to make weight for the first time in his UFC career.
