January 26, 2020
Stosic lost to Jamahal Hill via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Raleigh on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Stosic still put up a decent fantasy score due to the six takedowns and four passes he was credited with, but ended up losing the significant striking battle 31 to 101. Even though he finished the fight in a dominant position, it was simply too little, too late. The 27-year-old has now lost three consecutive bouts, with his record in the UFC falling to 1-3.

Stosic will take on Jamahal Hill in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Raleigh on Jan. 25, Jose Youngs of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Stosic has dropped his past two fights after entering the UFC with a 12-1 record, and he now carries an overall record of 13-3. The Serbian will take on Hill, who is making his UFC debut with a 6-0 record after earning a contract at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. Hill carries height and reach advantages into the fight as Stosic looks to get back into the win column.
Docked points lead to loss

August 3, 2019
Stosic lost to Kennedy Nzechukwu via unanimous decision (26-29, 27-28, 27-28) at UFC on ESPN 5 on Saturday in Newark, New Jersey.
ANALYSIS
Stosic is now the proud owner of back-to-back losses and he has nobody to blame for the situation but himself. He would have won this fight via split decision had he not (correctly) been docked points on two separate occasions for no less than three illegal groin strikes. Copeland kept warning Stosic, and the fighter kept firing off low blows. He did a nice job of negating the five-inch height advantage Nzechukwu possessed, but his poor fight IQ was ultimately his downfall.
Looks to bounce back in Newark

June 27, 2019
Stosic will take on Kennedy Nzechukwu in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Newark on Aug. 3, ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Stosic had been riding a nine-fight winning streak that carried over to his UFC debut, but he lost his last matchup to Devin Clark by unanimous decision in a matchup where he was outlanded 26-to-40 in significant strikes. He'll draw a fighter coming off a loss as well in Nzechukwu, who was submitted by Paul Craig in his UFC debut last March. Nzechukwu is a physical specimen for the 205-pound division, as Stosic will be conceding five inches in height and seven inches in reach to the fellow 27-year-old.
Loss snaps nine-fight win streak

June 1, 2019
Stosic lost to Devin Clark via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night 153 in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Stosic is undeniably a powerhouse, but is very slow and tends to let his opponents dictate the action. This was the case Saturday, as Clark would land flurries of shots mixed in with (largely) unsuccessful takedown attempts. This likely means that unless he lands a big shot, it will be difficult for Stosic to find success at the highest level. He falls to 13-2 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
Added to Stockholm card
Light HeavyweightUFC
May 19, 2019
Stosic will take on Devin Clark in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Stockholm on June 1, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
Stosic won his UFC debut against Jeremy Kimball by first-round TKO last summer, marking his third consecutive TKO victory. He was scheduled to face Magomed Ankalaev in February, but was forced to withdraw from his spot at UFC Prague due to injury. The Serbian will get another go at it against Clark, who is best known for his wrestling. There isn't a good enough sample size on Stosic's takedown defense against high-level competition to make an accurate assessment of his prowess there, though keeping this fight standing will be key for the 27-year-old.
