Luca has been passionate about martial arts and eastern philosophies since childhood. As an athlete, inventor and entrepreneur Luca founded SciFighting on the principal lessons learned from his life experience "fighting" to preserve his health and fitness. Although born with inherently poor and inconsistent health he pushed forward to learn as much as he could about the sciences of technology, medicine and mental health. Years of study, working with physicians and combined analysis finally began to bare fruit by his early twenties. Starting with Fencing, cross training and body building then moving to Boxing, Western Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Eskrima and an eclectic assortment of self defense techniques. Luca's core philosophy is that to win a battle every fighter must balance their mental and physical health. Luca has said that "With well developed technique, conditioning and mental focus a sound strategy will most often win over brute strength alone." It is in this spirit that he passionately advocates for the "Science of Fighting".

    Sad to hear, ironic considering you guys just did an article on the dangers of weight cutting.

    • Honestly Evan, I wonder if dehydration had something to do with Jone’s toe breaking the way it did. All this last minute cutting I think is definitely playing into making bones more brittle. Hell, the same could probably be said for Sefan Struve’s jaw.

        That’s a very good point, I’d much rather fight at my natural weight or cut some weight, but when Sonnen was fighting at 185 he’d cut from 220-230, that’s ridiculously unhealthy and will impair your performance.
