Dustin Jacoby set to make UFC return vs. Justin Ledet on Oct. 31

A Halloween event is on tap for the UFC in 2020.

Dustin Jacoby and Justin Ledet will square off Oct. 31 at a location to be determined.

Two people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the booking Thursday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

No other bouts are known for the event at this time.

Last week at Dana White’s Contender Series 27, Jacoby (12-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) punched his ticket back into the UFC after an eight-year absence, which saw him compete for Bellator, World Series of Fighting, and GLORY Kickboxing. On the Contender Series, Jacoby battered opponent Ty Flores for the majority of three rounds, earning a unanimous decision victory and a contract from UFC president Dana White.

Ledet (9-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) has had an up-and-down UFC tenure to date. After winning his first three promotional appearances, Ledet has hit a skid. He’s lost three fights in a row, most recently a unanimous decision to Aleksa Camur at UFC 246 in January.
