UFC has been extremely busy this year, producing shows almost weekly. With a lot of shows, comes employing a lot of fighters for a lot of fights. Having a lot of fights, sometimes things like injuries will happen to halt the process. Former UFC Bantamweight Scott Jorgensen has had multiple opponents announced for his UFC Flyweight debut at UFC on FOX 9 on December 14th. First Jorgensen was supposed to face "Uncle Creepy" Ian McCall and then taking his place was top UFC Flyweight contender & TUF 15 winner John Dodson. Unfortunately both men had to pull out due to injury, so one of Dodson's new teammates, Martinez BJJ's and Philly's own former Bellator MMA Bantamweight Champion Zach "Fun Size" Makovsky will be making his UFC debut in Dodson's place.

Makovsky has fought for multiple promotions including Elite XC, Bellator MMA, and most recently RFA. Makovksy holds a record of 16-4, and has fought the likes of Elite XC & Bellator MMA veteran Wilson Reis, current Bellator MMA Bantamweight Champion Eduardo Dantas, and in his last fight won the RFA Flyweight Championship against Matt Manzanares on November 22nd. Makovsky on his way to becoming the Inaugural Bellator MMA Bantamweight Champion, he fought and defeated Nick Mamalis, Bryan Goldsby, and in the Season 3 Bellator Bantamweight Tournament Final Ed West all by Unanimous Decision. The Drexel University alum was a walk on for the Drexel Wrestling Team his freshman year, and by his senior year became the Drexel Wrestling Team Captain.

His opponent is the always tough former WEC Bantamweight number one contender Scott Jorgensen. Jorgensen holds a Pro MMA record of 14-7. Since moving over from WEC to the UFC though, Jorgensen is 3-3 with his 3 losses coming from current Interim UFC Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao, and recent UFC Bantamweight number one contenders Eddie Wineland & Urijah Faber. Jorgensen is a 4 time WEC/UFC Fight of the Night winner, so expect a very exciting fight between these two men. The following is the entire fight card for UFC on FOX 9 on December 14th:
