Makovsky is Ready for a Flyweight Title Shot

Is Zach Makovsky the Next Flyweight Title Challenger?
By: Dan Shapiro, FIGHTLAND
"It’s a familiar scenario: perennial southpaw underdog from eastern Pennsylvania just can’t seem to get a title shot.
 
"Rocky Balboa rode this exact setup to a crack at Apollo Creed, along with a trio of Academy Awards, in 1976. But for UFC flyweight Zach Makovsky, who squares off against Jussier 'Formiga' da Silva at UFC Fight Night 47, his shot at championship gold will have to wait.
 
"For anyone who has missed the diminutive 32 year old Makovsky, during his first two appearances inside the Octagon, the Bethlehem, PA native has technically dismantled his opposition, stringing together a pair of decision victories on account of his dominant wrestling and accurate striking."
