Lodune Sincaid, 'TUF 1' alum and former WEC champ, dead at 45
An “Ultimate Fighter 1” cast member who later went on to hold WEC gold has died.
“Lodune Sincaid was found dead April 7, 2019,” his website stated. “Lodune was a true friend and will be missed by those close to him as well as those who crossed his path during his time on this earth. He held no grudges and left this life in peace.”
The Minnesota native made his pro debut in 2001 and won his first six fights. That earned him an invite to the legendary first season of TUF, where, as a member of Team Couture, he was knocked out by Bobby Southworth in the opening round of the tournament. He then suffered his first official career loss to Nate Quarry in the TUF 1 Finale.
Sincaid rebounded in the WEC, where knocked out James Irvin and then submitted Dan Molina at WEC 20 to claim the light heavyweight title. He subsequently lost the belt to Doug Marshall.
Sincaid, who had been living in Clearwater, Fla., spent the next several years competing on the regional circuits, and retired in 2010 with a record of 15-9.
