He next took on Raphael Natal four months later and was able to win with a head kick KO. He experienced his first professional defeat when he lost a decision to Ronny Markes in Brazil. Andrew had the biggest win of his career when he was able to defeat UFC veteran, Chris Leben, by split decision. He next took on Luke Barnatt at UFC Fight Night 30 in Manchester, England. Although he came up short, losing via second round submission, he was able to pick up the "Fight of the Night" bonus.
