However he faced much heavier Serbian fighter Dragan Jovanović; he weighed 104 kg (229 lb) and Milanović around 94 kg (207 lb). Jovanović was gold medalist in W.A.K.O. European Championships in Ankara, Turkey 2012. Milanović won the fight by unanimous judges' decision. The fight was held in Supreme FC organisation. [2] [3] [4]

He faced Jason Wilnis in a super fight at K-1 World Grand Prix 2012 Final in Zagreb, Croatia on March 15, 2013, in the -85 kg category. Before the fight he said: "May plan is to prove in the near future that I'm the best fighter in the world in this weight class". [5] At official weigh-ins, Milanović weighed 84.8 kg. [6] However, he lost the fight in the first round.

He took a unanimous decision victory over Ibrahim El Bouni at Final Fight Championship 3: Jurković vs. Cătinaș in Split, Croatia, on April 19, 2013. [7]
