Eduardo Dantas is not the first person to have issued a beating to Zach Makovsky.
There are two other fighters who've beaten the former Bellator bantamweight champion on the pro circuit. But there are countless training partners who have done it in the gym.
The easy-going Makovsky (14-3 MMA, 6-1 BFC) says that's the point.
"The training always keeps me very humble," the 30-year-old fighter told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) in advance of his fight with Anthony Leone (11-5 MMA, 1-2 BFC) at Bellator 83, which takes place Friday at Caesars Atlantic City in New Jersey (Makovsky vs. Leone serves on the MTV2-televised main-card following prelims on Spike.com.)
