Ben Askren On Zach Makovsky’s Win At UFC On FOX 9: “Former Bellator Guy Beats UFC Top 10…Impossible”

Former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren didn’t let Zach Makovsky’s victory over Scott Jorgensen Saturday night at UFC on FOX 9 go without a comment.

Makovsky, also a former Bellator champion, was called up on short notice after winning the Resurrection Fighting Alliance belt just a couple of weeks ago. He earned a decision victory over Jorgensen, a Top-10 ranked fighter moving down to flyweight for the first time.

Askren seemed poised to head to the UFC after his Bellator deal expired, but UFC president Dana White decided not to sign him. Instead, the former U.S. Olympian recently signed with ONE FC out of Asia.
