Ledet was defeated by Johnny Walker via TKO (punches) at 0:15 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ on Saturday in Brazil.

The spinning backfist dropped Ledet and Walker followed it up with punches. Ledet has now lost two in a row after starting out 9-0 in his professional mixed martial arts career.

Ledet (9-1-0) is scheduled to fight Johnny Walker (15-3-0) in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Fortaleza on Feb. 2, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Ledet will look to rebound after suffering the first loss of his professional career in his most recent match back in July, when he dropped down to 205 pounds to take on Aleksander Rakic at UFC Fight Night 134. He'll get a tough draw against an ascending prospect in the 26-year-old Walker, who scored an impressive elbow knockout against Khalil Rountree in his Octagon debut in November.
Gets soundly beaten in Hamburg
July 22, 2018
Ledet lost to Aleksandar Rakic via unanimous decision (25-30, 24-30, 24-30) at UFC Fight Night 134 on Sunday in Hamburg, Germany.
The scorecards tell the story of this one, as Ledet was eating leg kicks and sharp punches when he wasn't getting mauled on the ground. Ledet is a crisp boxer who has shown some level of ground game but lacks power and tends to stick to rote jab-hook combinations, so it's not surprising that an athletic, powerful fighter with a deeper MMA game would cause him some problems. Ledet suffered his first professional loss in the bout. His MMA record now stands at 9-1
Moving down to 205 for UFC Hamburg fight
May 3, 2018
Ledet will cut to light heavyweight to face Aleksandar Rakic at UFC Hamburg on July 22.
Ledet is a perfect 3-0 as a UFC heavyweight, but barely escaped with a split-decision win over Azunna Anyanwu his last time out. He'll now try his luck as a 205-pounder, but doesn't necessarily have much of a size advantage over Rakic despite dropping down. The two both stand at 6-4, and Ledet has a slight, two-inch reach advantage. Rakic only has one UFC fight to his name -- a unanimous decision victory over Francimar Barroso last September.
Struggles to decision Zu Anyanwu in Pittsburgh
September 16, 2017
Ledet defeated Zu Anyanwu via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Pittsburgh.
The 'split decision' term is a bit harsh. Ledet deserved to win, but he was far from impressive in doing so. He actually ended up losing the total strike battle by a count of 36-37 to a guy who took the fight on four days' notice. Neither man did much of anything over the course of the fight. Ledet is undefeated as a professional and young enough (28) that it is realistic to expect improvement moving forward, but his ceiling certainly appears to be rather limited.
Will fight Azunna Anyanwu this weekend
September 11, 2017
Ledet will fight Azunna Anyanwu in Saturday's UFC Fight Night event in Pittsburgh, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
The undefeated heavyweight was originally scheduled to fight Dmitriy Sosnovskiy, but an injury to Sosnovskiy has caused a last-minute change in opponents. Ledet is 8-0 overall (2-0 in UFC) and is coming off a four-month USADA suspension.
