Iasmin Lucindo is a professional mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). She was born on January 17th, 1984, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Growing up she had an active lifestyle that included training in karate and capoeira since she was 6 years old. As her skills progressed she moved onto Muay Thai and eventually Brazilian Jiu Jitsu where she earned her black belt from Rodrigo Clark at Nova Uniao.
Lucindo turned pro at age 18 after winning the Copa Zona Norte tournament as a white belt. She went on to fight for RFA and Invicta FC before signing with UFC in 2018 where she has competed ever since. Her debut came against Justine Kish during the UFC Fight Night: Cerrone vs Till event held on October 27th, 2018 which resulted in a unanimous decision victory for Lucindo.
Since then, Iasmin has fought 4 more times within the Octagon including victories over Sarah Moras via submission as well as wins over Sabina Mazo and Ji Yeon Kim by unanimous decisions while also suffering one loss to Julia Avila via TKO back in 2020 during UFC Fight Night 177 held on August 8th of that year due to strikes.
Lucindo’s fighting style is heavily influenced by her background which includes boxing, judo, kickboxing and jiu-jitsu among other disciplines which makes it difficult for opponents to predict what moves or techniques they may be faced with when stepping into the Octagon with Iasmin. Despite this diversity of skill sets however Lucindo tends to favor striking exchanges though remains open minded about using any part of MMA necessary should it give her an advantage during competition.
At 5 foot 3 inches tall Iasmin fights out of Team Noguchi based out of Tokyo Japan where most of her training takes place under head coach Mamoru Tamura alongside fellow fighters such as Shinichi “BJ” Kojima and Takashi Sato both whom are also members of Team Noguchi . Additionally off hours can often find Iasmim still honing her crafts whether it be drilling standup techniques at local gyms or even visiting area Judokas dojo’s so that she can continue expanding upon already impressive list techniques available within MMA arsenal.
Outside of competing inside the cage Lucinado spends time volunteering teaching BJJ classes both locally but internationally as well through organizations such Projeto Social Lutar designed help support children living impoverished regions throughout Brazil while providing much needed resources along with introducing them various combat sports like BJJ wrestling etc..
In summation ,Iasmi Lucinado is highly skilled professional Mixed Martial Artist whose talents span multiple combat styles allowing for unique match ups when facing off against opponents inside octagon .
