Pettis out of Jury Fight in July

 

The comeback of former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis will have to wait a little longer, as "Showtime" suffered an elbow injury that will keep him out of the UFC on FOX event on July 25 in Chicago.

Stepping in to face Pettis' original opponent, Myles Jury, will be Brazilian Muay Thai king Edson Barboza.

The FOX card is headlined by the long-awaited rematch between UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and former titleholder Renan Barao.
