A light heavyweight division attraction has been added to a yet to be announced UFC card on November 7 as Dustin Jacoby faces Justin Ledet.
The news was announced during the Dana White's Contender Series Episode 29 broadcast.
Jacoby (12-5-0) is starting his second run with the UFC, going winless during the first stint with the promotion. Jacoby just competed on Dana White’s Contender Series Episode 27, defeating Ty Flores by unanimous decision. Jacoby hasn’t been defeated in over four years, with that last loss coming to John Salter at Bellator 132 in January of 2015.
Ledet (9-3-0-1NC) has won three of six in the UFC, with those victories coming over Chase Sherman, Mark Godbeer and Azunna Anyanwu. Ledet will come into the contest riding a three fight losing streak and he hasn’t picked up a win in almost three years. Ledet has picked up more than half of his professional MMA wins by submission, but he has yet to lose by submission.
The yet to be announced UFC card is set for Saturday, November 7 from a location to be announced and with a main event to be announced. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, while broadcast plans have yet to be revealed.
