Bellator Fighting Championships announced Friday that bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky will defend his title against Season 5 tournament winner Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 65 on April 13.
Taking place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., the event will also feature a welterweight tournament qualifier between former 170-pound kingpin Lyman Good and three-time Bellator vet LeVon Maynard.
Makovsky, 29, has not lost since 2009, posting a perfect 6-0 record in the Bellator cage. “Fun Size” debuted with the Chicago-based promotion in 2010, capturing the organization’s 135-pound belt by besting Ed West in the Season 3 tournament finals. Since his title-winning performance, Makovsky has competed twice in non-title bouts, finishing Chad Robichaux and Ryan Roberts last year.
