Johnny Walker (16-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) train continues to win steam, with Brazil just 15 seconds to stop Justin Ledet (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC ).
The lightweight pump was part of the main UFC card today on ESPN + 2 event at Centro de Formacao Olimpica do Nordeste in Fortaleza, Brazil. I've been streamed on ESPN +.
Ledet was aggressive to start the battle, coming out with an assault, but Walker was opposed to a spinning spray, which Ledet sent to the canvas. Walker ran on an incredible illegal kick for a serious opponent, but appears to be coming straight away to landing and possibly leading to disqualification. Then, Walker collected himself and stood over his opponent, cleansing down large penalties that had to stop the fight quickly, only 15 seconds after it started.
