Report: RFA champ Zach Makovsky tapped to face Scott Jorgensen at UFC on FOX
It didn't take long for the UFC to fill the void left by John Dodson after the former Ultimate Fighter winner suffered a knee injury forcing him out of his scheduled fight against Scott Jorgensen at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Benavidez 2 next week.
According to sources close to the situation speaking to FOX Sports on Wednesday, Resurrection Fighting Alliance flyweight champion and former Bellator bantamweight champion Zach 'Fun Size' Mackovsky has been tapped as a replacement to step in and face Jorgensen. MMAWeekly.com first reported the switch.
Makovsky accepts the fight on just 10 days notice away from facing Jorgensen, but it won't be the rough weight cut or lack of training camp that some fighters might deal with this close to a bout.
It was just under two weeks ago that Makovsky defeated Matt Manzanares to win the RFA flyweight title and now he's received the call to make his UFC debut at UFC on FOX in Sacramento.
UFC officials haven't confirmed the bout yet, but an announcement is expected soon/
