Zach Makovsky Discusses Key to Beating Jussier Formiga at UFC Fight Night 47
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 07.31.2014



MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed UFC flyweight fighter Zach Makovsky, who talked about getting into the UFC, potentially facing champion Demetrious Johnson, and his upcoming fight with Jussier Formiga at UFC Fight Night 47. Below are some highlights:

Makovsky on Johnson: "Anybody can be knocked down. He is looking pretty phenomenal. Every time I watch him fight, he's so well-rounded and good at everything. He just controls everyone he fights, so it would definitely take a special effort to bring him down."

Makovsky on being in the UFC now: "This is where everyone wants to be – in the UFC. Being talked about amongst the best guys in the world, it's thrilling for me. I've worked very hard for a long time to get here, and I'm thrilled."

Makovsky on his drop to flyweight: "After I lost two in a row and had my exit from Bellator, I dropped to flyweight and just refocused and wanted to keep learning and keep my skills evolving. I can't just come in with the same game plan all the time. I have to evolve. Maybe it took some time to get comfortable to do different things, but the time I've had to change since then and implement those skills is what's making the difference now."

On his match-up with Jussier Formiga: "I think my jiu-jitsu game is good. He's definitely more credentialed in jiu-jitsu and a black belt under Nova Uniao, so there's no question he's good and that's where he's stood out in his fights. … The key is to keep him defensive. If I put him on his back and put him on the defense, then the chance of him attacking and catching me with something is less."

Makovsky on being in consideration for a title shot with a win: "That's what I'm shooting for and that's where I'm trying to get. I would love a chance to fight him (Johnson)."
