Sincaid is from St. Paul, Minnesota and had a very difficult childhood. Sincaid himself was very withdrawn growing up and kept to himself. He 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. Sincaid then moved from Minnesota to California. Since his career began, Sincaid himself had been battling alcohol issues and has spent time in rehabilitation. Since his last fight, Lodune has been focusing on bettering himself. Being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Lodune maintains a healthy lifestyle with proper medication. He currently resides in Florida where he is focused on training up and coming fighters.
Mixed martial arts 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 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.
