Posted on by Erik Fontanez

Zach MakovskyA flyweight fight between Jussier Formiga and Zach Makovsky has been verbally agreed to take place at UFC 176, officials announced on Tuesday evening.

The 125-pound tilt adds to the developing fight card, which takes place Aug. 2 in Los Angeles at Staples Center.

Formiga (16-3) is coming off one of the biggest wins in his career, a finish of Scott Jorgensen at a UFC Fight Night in Brazil last March. The Brazilian fighter holds a 2-2 record in the Octagon.

Makovsky (18-4) is undefeated in his two UFC bouts, picking up  a recent victory over Josh Sampo at UFC 170 last February, as well as a debut win over Jorgensen.

UFC 176 is scheduled to be headlined by a featherweight title fight featuring champion Jose Aldo defending his title a second time against Chad Mendes.
