In his first competition since the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps lost to Ryan Lochte Thursday in the 100-meter butterfly final at Arena Grad Prix.
Lochte finished with a time of 51.93 seconds while Phelps clocked in at 52.13.
Phelps actually qualified earlier in the day with the fastest time, finishing in 52.84 seconds.
