Zach Makovsky vs. Jussier Formiga set for UFC 176

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC 176 event in Los Angeles has added its first flyweight bout.

A pair of flyweights looking to scratch their way into title contention will be meeting in Los Angeles at UFC 176. Zach Makovsky will face off with Jussier Formiga. UFC News has it:

Formiga (16-3) picked up a big first-round submission win over Scott Jorgensen in his last outing to run his UFC record to 2-2 overall. This will be the first time he has fought outside of Brazil since his UFC debut.

Makovsky (18-4), a former Bellator bantamweight champion, is 2-0 since he joined the UFC with wins over Jorgensen and Josh Sampo. A third straight win could see him in line for a possible shot with the winner of the UFC 174 main event between Demetrious Johnson and Ali Bagautinov.

The August 2nd card in the Staples Center will be headliner by a UFC featherweight title rematch between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes.
