Lodune Sincaid (born May 7, 1973) is an American professional mixed martial artist. He is a former WEC Light Heavyweight Champion, and was featured on the UFC's The Ultimate Fighter 1 reality show, losing to Bobby Southworth by knockout in the first elimination match of the season. He has also competed in the World Fighting Alliance and Palace Fighting Championship. [1]

Background

Sincaid is from St. Paul, Minnesota and had a very difficult childhood. Both of his parents battled severe depression and his father abused alcohol as a result, which then led to him abusing his family. Both of Sincaid's parents were hospitalized for lengthy periods of time and put on medication but continued to battle deep depression. Sincaid's grandmother was institutionalized when she was pregnant with Sincaid's mother, his grandfather was hospitalized, and some of his uncles also had mental illnesses. Sincaid himself was very withdrawn growing up and kept to himself, being put on medication. Sincaid also worked out excessively and participated in wrestling, which he excelled at until he stopped playing after his freshman year of high school. The young Sincaid got into many street fights, and was arrested as a result. Sincaid was in the United States Navy and eventually his parents divorced. After this, he fell into a deep depression and attempted suicide, before being hospitalized for two months. Sincaid then moved from Minnesota to California. Since his career has began, Sincaid himself has been battling drug and alcohol issues and has spent time in rehabilitation. [2]

Mixed martial arts career

Early career

Sincaid made his professional debut in 2001 fighting in small promotions, and started off his career dominating his opponents, achieving a 6-0 record with all of the wins coming by submission or knockout.

The Ultimate Fighter

The UFC had been following Sincaid's career closely and invited him to compete on the first-ever Ultimate Fighter. He fought for Team Couture, led by Randy Couture, and was eliminated by future Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Bobby Southworth by knockout in the first elimination match.

Sincaid was handed his first professional loss at the The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale against future UFC Middleweight Championship contender Nate Quarry, via TKO due to punches.

WEC

Sincaid made his debut in the WEC against former WEC Heavyweight Champion James Irvin. Sincaid won the bout via unanimous decision and was then offered an opportunity to fight for the WEC Light Heavyweight Championship at WEC 20, and won by a rear-naked choke submission, becoming the new WEC Light Heavyweight Champion.

Sincaid then lost his next two fights, the first being against Jason "Mayhem" Miller at WFA: King of the Streets by a rear-naked choke submission and then in his next fight Sincaid lost the WEC Light Heavyweight Championship belt to Doug Marshall by knockout. After his fight with Miller, it was revealed that Sincaid tested positive for marijuana.

Post-WEC

After the demise of the WEC, Sincaid appeared in the Palace Fighting Championship organization as well as other small organizations.
