Zach Makovsky “Grateful” for BRAVE CF 34 Spot, Wants to Fight for the Flyweight Title

American Zach Makovsky will be making his much-anticipated return to MMA action at BRAVE Combat Federation’s debut event in Slovenia, which will be done in partnership with leading local promotion WFC, on January 19th. As the debut date firmly approaches, “Fun Size” remains focused on Velimurad Alkhasov and what the sambo world champion brings to the table.

However, it is inevitable that the former Bellator champion and UFC veteran thinks about the biggest prize of them all – the inaugural BRAVE CF Flyweight championship. While Makovsky admits he wants a run that culminates in the belt, he feels he needs to test the BRAVE CF Flyweights first.

“BRAVE CF has a bunch of talented Flyweights and I hope we get to see how I match up with them all. My goal is to put on a string of great fights for BRAVE CF that culminates in a title fight and the championship round my waist”, says Zach.

The American admits the lure of fighting martial artists from all over the world also attracted him to BRAVE CF, which holds events in all corners of the globe and will turn Slovenia into its 19th home in 34 events in the last three years. Makovsky is excited to see how he matches up with Alkhasov and to fight in a new territory.

“I’ve been fighting professionally for over 13 years. I love training and competing, and I now have another opportunity to fight amazing martial artists from all over the world under the BRAVE CF lights and is an honor for which I’m very grateful. Velimurad seems to be a skilled and successful fighter. He has an effective kicking game, strong punches, and obviously very strong grappling. We’ll see how I can match up with his skill set on fight night.”

BRAVE CF 34/WFC 24 takes place at the Tivoli Hall, in Ljubljana in the first event held under the partnership formed between BRAVE Combat Federation and WFC, the leading MMA organization in the Balkans.
