Losing streak hits three

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.
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.
