A rematch is in the works for UFC 101 on Aug 8 in Philadelphia as lightweights Shane Nelson and Aaron Riley will do battle for the second time inside of six months after the pair fought to a controversial stoppage during their original fight at UFC 96 in March.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday by a source close to Nelson's camp.

Shane Nelson came into UFC 96 just one fight removed from his time on the "Ultimate Fighter", and looked good in the early going, dropping his opponent with a big shot that put Riley on the canvas.

As Riley kicked up to defend himself once on the ground, referee Rick Fike rushed in to stop the action, declaring Nelson the winner much to the dismay of the Ohio crowd who saw that the fight seemed far from over.

I lost a parlay on Riley... will probably pick him to win again though.
