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/
