Zach Makovsky replaces injured John Dodson, meets Scott Jorgensen at UFC on FOX 9

Bellator

Scott Jorgensen’s first opponent after his move to the flyweight division has changed once again.

Initially expected to meet Ian McCall, and then John Dodson, the former WEC title challenger now takes on Bellator veteran Zach Makovsky at UFC on FOX 9 on Dec. 14 in Sacramento, Calif. Sources close to the situation confirmed the news to MMAFighting.com, following a report from MMAWeekly.

Jorgensen (14-7) makes his flyweight debut after going 10-6 under the Zuffa banner at the bantamweight division. Coming off a loss to Urijah Faber, "Young Guns" has beaten the likes of Jeff Curran, Brad Pickett and Takeya Mizugaki, but desperately needs a win with a 1-3 record since 2012.

A former Bellator bantamweight champion, and a former NCAA Division I wrestler at Drexel University, Makovsky (16-4) enters the Octagon for the first time following back-to-back wins since moving down to the flyweight division, including a title win over Matt Manzanares at RFA 11 last November.
