Amedovski will face Bevon Lewis in a middleweight bout at UFC Raleigh on Jan. 25, Jose Youngs of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Amedovski is 0-2 in the UFC since coming over from Bellator, and he served a three-month USADA suspension that began in July.

Amedovski lost to John Phillips via KO (punches) at 0:17 of Round 1 at UFC Copenhagen on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
The former Bellator fighter is now 0-2 under the UFC banner with a brief USADA suspension on top of that. He's exciting if nothing else, as he came out swinging with little regard for defense, and it will effectively land him on the short end of the third-fastest knockout in UFC history. While Amedovski closed as the betting favorite in this one, he did little for those who used him in fantasy lineups, collecting just two significant strikes on 11 attempts before getting finished.

Amedovski lost to Krzysztof Jotko via unanimous decision (30-25, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Saint Petersburg.
ANALYSIS
Amendovski came into this fight with an undefeated record, and he really struggled to get anything going in this fight. He spent most of the fight stuck on the bottom eating strikes from the top position. He previously fought twice in Bellator, but this was still a big step up in competition. In the end, he was not up to the challenge.
