“A true champion will fight through anything.”
The television reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” changed the MMA landscape Forever. Lodune Ki Sincaid was a member of the very first season of this program, and the very first fight in history of the show.
Lodune learned the fight game early as a means of survival, after his military service (Persian Gulf / US Navy), he set his sites on Southern California. Home of martial art greats. There he trained under legends in the field. Undefeated kickboxing legend Benny “The Jet” was Lodune’s first mentor. Through him he was introduced to the Sadistic yet effective grappling system of “Judo” Gene LeBell and heir to Gene’s system Gokor.
Lodune went professional in 2001 amassing an impressive 11-0 record. Catching eye of the UFC, Lodune was chosen along with 15 other of America’s top MMA fighters for “TUF” Television show.
Lodune captured The WEC LH title after show.
He now has his own MMA & personalized private training club in Clearwater, Florida.
Lodune has been very outspoken about his dealing with the two toughest fights in his life, PTSD from military service and genetic bipolar disorder. He passes this same courage on to his students and his goal is to bring honor to his teachers, and to inspire the rest of the world to never give up on their dreams or themselves.
