Former Bellator Champion Zach Makovsky Released

In a surprise move, Bellator has released former champion Zach Makovsky following a second consecutive loss.

Makovsky was submitted by Eduardo Dantas and Anthony Leone, the second of which was a split decision defeat recently.

The 30-year-old is a former Bellator bantamweight champion, including a victory in the season three tournament. He is 14-4 in his career, and had put together an eight-fight win streak prior to his recent skid.
