Bellator has announced that Zach Makovsky will defend his bantamweight title on April 13 at Bellator 65 against season five tournament winner Eduardo Dantas. The event will take place from Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.
Along with the title match, the semifinals of the season six middleweight tournament will take place, along with the return of Lyman Good to action against LeVon Maynard.
Dantas rolled through the most recent bantamweight tourney, defeating Wilson Reis, Ed West, and Alexis Vila to secure a shot at Makovsky, who is on an eight-fight winning streak of his own.
“Zach and Eduardo are two of the greatest bantamweights in MMA today, so this should be a really spectacular fight,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney in a recent press release. “We always have a packed house whenever we head out to Atlantic City, and I expect nothing less on April 13.”
“I’m here at Bellator to win the bantamweight champion. I plan to not only win the title, but to keep it for many years to come,” added Dantas.
