UFC Fight Night 60: “Fun Size” Back Into The Win Column

Zach Makovsky

Former Bellator champion Zach Makovsky got back in the win column Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 60, besting Tim Elliott in a battle of ranked flyweights.

Makovsky (19-5) was coming off a decision loss to Jussier Formiga last August that halted his four-fight win streak that included two wins inside the Octagon.

By using his takedowns and work on the ground, “Fun Size” was able to control Elliott.

“Tim brings a hell of a pace,” he said. “I knew that going in. I was hoping to control him.

“He pushes the pace no matter what; it was a very tough fight.”

Makovsky held the Bellator bantamweight championship in 2010, winning it in a tournament final over Ed West. His first – and only – title defense was two years later, when he was submitted by Eduardo Dantas.
