Ledet has been booked to take on Dalcha Lungiambula at UFC on ESPN Minneapolis on June 29, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
After a 9-0-1 start in his professional career, including 3-0 in his first three UFC bouts, Ledet has dropped two fights in a row over the last year. Most recently, he suffered a loss via TKO (punches) in the first round against Johnny Walker at UFC Fight Night 144 in February. Now, he will have the chance to bounce back against Lungiambula, who will be making his UFC debut while riding a five-fight winning streak under EFC.

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.
ANALYSIS
"Flat-earther" Justin Ledet got starched in this fight. He never even had a chance to get going as Walker landed a glancing hook kick followed by a spinning backfist. 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.
ANALYSIS
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
HeavyweightUFC
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.
ANALYSIS
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
HeavyweightUFC
May 3, 2018
Ledet will cut to light heavyweight to face Aleksandar Rakic at UFC Hamburg on July 22.
ANALYSIS
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.
