Did you know that Justin Ledet is unbeaten in both his UFC and MMA career?
The light heavyweight fights this Sunday at UFC Fight Night 134 against Aleksandar Rakic in a prelim bout on FOX Sports 1. The event takes place from Hamburg, Germany and the Barclaycard Arena.
Ledet, a 29-year-old from Texas who fights out of the Gracia Barra Texas gym, has scored three consecutive wins since a no-contest with Brice Ritani-Coe prior to signing with the UFC. His run includes a submission vs. Mark Godbeer in 2016 around decisions over Zu Anyanwu and Chase Sherman.
It’s been a rough couple of years for Ledet, as a failed drug test for a contaminated supplement caused him to miss time.
However, now that he is back, this is a perfect time for him to find his rhythm and make a statement.
Of his nine career wins, seven have been finishes – including five via submission. His rear-naked choke on Godbeer in Northern Ireland earned him a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
Ledet’s athleticism can be pointed back to his pre-MMA days, as he was a member of the NCAA Div. II Texas A&M University-Kingsville basketball program and a standout in the Houston-area.
