Following a 3-3 record in the UFC’s bantamweight division, Scott Jorgensen will drop to flyweight for the first time in his career.  After the UFC/WEC merger, Jorgensen started his UFC tenure 2-0, but has struggled since, going just 1-3 in his last four bouts. Most recently, he lost to Urijah Faber by fourth round submission at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.

Former Bellator bantamweight champion and newly crowned RFA flyweight champion, Zach Makovsky fills in on a week’s notice for John Dodson, who was forced to withdrawal because of an injury sustained while training. Makovsky was released from Bellator in December of last year following a two-fight losing streak, but has since dropped to the 125-division and won back-to-back fights, most recently earning a unanimous decision over Matt Manzanares at RFA 11 to win the flyweight title.
