Losing streak hits four
Light HeavyweightOther
October 31, 2020
Ledet lost to Dustin Jacoby via TKO (strikes) at 2:38 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This was a strange fight. Ledet appeared to be in a halfway decent shape in a bout that was back-and-forth in the early going, but his complete inability to check a leg kick from Jacoby forced Ledet to the mat and eventually led to the finish. Ledet is a boxer by trade, and it's abundantly clear watching him fight that he is uncomfortable if forced to do anything other than use his fists on the feet. Ledet began his UFC run with three straight victories but has lost four in a row since.
Squaring off versus Jacoby
Light HeavyweightOther
August 14, 2020
Ledet will take on Dustin Jacoby in a light heavyweight matchup on the UFC's Nov. 7 card.
ANALYSIS
After a strong start in three straight victories to open his UFC career, Ledet has plummeted with three straight losses. He will get another chance to end that skid in October, taking on Jacoby, who is back in the UFC for the first time since 2012 thanks to his Contender Series win over Ty Flores. Ledet stands one inch taller and sports a four-inch reach advantage over Jacoby.
Losing streak hits three
Light HeavyweightOther
January 18, 2020
Ledet lost to Aleksa Camur via unanimous decision (28-29, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Ledet's struggles continue. A ground fighter who struggles in any prolonged kickboxing match, Ledet made life easy for the debuting Camur. Ledet's footwork is poor and his 6-foot-4 frame makes for a big target for his opposition to hit when they return fire. Ledet won his first three UFC fights against lousy competition (Chase Sherman, Mark Godbeer, Azunna Anyanwu) but has dropped his last three since the competition level (Camur, Johnny Walker, Aleksandar Rakic) has risen. There's nothing to see here.
Added to Raleigh card

December 3, 2019
Ledet (undisclosed) will take on Aleksa Camur in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 246 on Jan. 18, Shawn Bitter of Cageside Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Ledet was forced out of a summer matchup against Dalcha Lungiambula due to an unspecified issue, but he'll make his return after more than a six-month layoff in this late addition to the card. He'll look to snap a two-fight losing streak again an undefeated prospect in Camur, who will be getting his shot following an impressive flying knee knockout on Dana White's Contender Series.
