In a strange turn of events just one fight after losing the Bellator bantamweight title, former champion Zach Makovsky has been released from the organization.

Makovsky announced the news via Twitter on Sunday.

“Honestly shocked but thank you for the opportunity Bellator,” wrote Makovsky.

In a later message he wrote responding to a fan, “Yes released but as every door closes new ones, maybe better ones, open.”

During his time with Bellator, Makovsky amassed a 6-2 record including his run to win the Bellator bantamweight title before losing the belt to Eduardo Dantas earlier this year.

Makovsky dropped his second fight in a row losing by split decision to Anthony Leone just earlier this month, and now he finds himself on the outside looking in with Bellator.
