MMA veteran Zach Makovsky wants to roll back the years at BRAVE CF 73

Zach Makovsky will hope to turn back the clock when he locks horns with Flavio de Queiroz at BRAVE CF 73.


In the Colombian capital of Bogota, 40-year-old Zach Makovsky will aim to break a two-fight losing streak and remind the world that he’s still a threat in the flyweight division. The former Bellator champion has been in this game for almost two decades, and in that time, he’s had many highs and many lows.


As a kid who always had a strong wrestling pedigree, it’s not too surprising to look back and see that it was his love of martial arts movies that motivated him to really commit to the sport. Ever since then, he’s fought all over the globe, making a name for himself as someone who never goes down without a fight.


When it comes to his next challenge, Makovsky seems to have a really positive mindset heading into his encounter with Flavio de Queiroz.


“I think we’re both pretty well-rounded. There’s not one area where there’s a drastic difference, I don’t think. I think we can both do everything. We both can strike, both can wrestle. We both can grapple from top and bottom.”


“I think he’s kind of like a momentum fighter. If you let him get going too much, he’s good at keeping the pressure on, stringing good combinations together and kind of bullying you around. So, I don’t want to let him kind of get on a roll at all. I’m also somewhat of a difficult fighter to do that against.”


BRAVE CF 73 takes place on August 12, at the Coliseo El Salitre, in Bogota, Colombia. The main event of the evening will see the vacant Bantamweight World Title on the line as Jose “Shorty” Torres takes on Nkosi “The Future” Ndebele.
