Justin Ledet is an American mixed martial artist currently competing in the UFC’s Heavyweight division. He made his professional debut in March 2014 and since then has developed a strong reputation as one of the toughest fighters on the UFC roster.
Ledet was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where he first discovered his love for MMA while attending high school. As a teenager, he competed in wrestling tournaments around the state and quickly realized that this form of competition suited him well. After graduating, he began training at Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) gym which ultimately led to his entry into professional fighting.
In early 2014, Ledet won three consecutive LFA bouts before being signed by the UFC later that year—making him one of only five undefeated heavyweight fighters to join the organization at that time. His impressive streak continued with two back-to-back victories against fellow newcomers Chase Sherman and Daniel Omielanczuk—both within just 1 minute 48 seconds each! This earned him attention from fans everywhere who were eager to see what else this young fighter had up his sleeve.
Since joining the UFC’s heavyweight division, Ledet has faced some tough opponents including former champion Fabricio Werdum whom he fought twice—losing both bouts yet doing remarkably well considering Werdum’s experience level compared to his own at that point. He also faced off against recent title contender Alexander Volkov but ultimately lost due to a technical knockout late into round four. Despite these losses however, Justin still boasts an overall impressive 7 wins – 3 losses record alongside notable successes such as knockouts against Anthony Hamilton and Azunna Anyanwu during 2018–19 season respectively .
