Liveblog: NBF 28 Part 3

Bo Harris of Martial Arts Unlimited and Zach Makovsky are set and ready to bang. Makovsky has only lost to Wilson Reis and some Japanese dude in DEEP, and he has long been considered one of the best 135 pounders in the Northeast, so unless Harris has superpowers, he should be in for a rough time. Yeah, this one doesn't take long, with Harris snatching a leg and getting a takedown, but falling right into an armbar then a triangle. Makovsky is victorious at 1:50 of Round 1. If Bellator ever gets around to doing a 135-pound tournament, it would be criminal if Makovsky weren't a part of it. Fight Factory puts another rep in the cage for the next bout, with 168 pounder Sam Oropeza taking on Wolfpack's 170 pound Dave Concepcion. Oropeza has about 50 percent of the audience cheering for him, and with his entrance music that Arcade Fire song that was on the "Where The Wilds Things Are" commercial, I don't think there's a dry eye in the joint. In fact, I think even ref Dan Miragliotta is teary. Wowsers. This one is quick. Some token punches and then a high-kick to the grill and Oropeza has knocked out Concepcion in nine seconds. The undefeated Fight Factory stud continues to impress.
