Unstoppable Fury : The Tenacious Warrior of the Octagon

Justin DeLucia

26 years old

Holbrook, NY

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

149 lbs.


People throw around the word “phenom” quite often, but usually there is no substance behind it.  Well, let me introduce you to Justin DeLucia.  Justin started wrestling in high school and got bit by the injury bug which caused him to miss several seasons.  But, he never quit.  He pushed through his injuries and continued wrestling.  That tenacity led him to become the starter at 149 pounds for Western New England University. 


When College Wrestling was over, Justin still felt the itch to compete, so he decided to go take a class in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the Vanguard Academy in Lake Grove, NY.  And the rest is history.  As a brand new student, with zero knowledge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Justin was giving seasoned competitors fits on the mat.  People were shaking their heads in disbelief watching him train.  He trains under Jason Rau and Nick Ronan, both legends in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.


Justin has been training for only two years, and he has gotten promoted much more quickly than the average person does.  He has already won multiple tournaments including the IBJJF, Finishers Sub Only, Pride BJJ, SOGI, NAGA and Newbreed.  The epitome of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the ADCC.  With nowhere near as much experience as the other competitors, Justin took 3rd place in an absolutely stacked weight class at the ADCC Qualifier.


Justin has begun incorporating Muay Thai into his arsenal of wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  His brother Justin is an absolute brawler of a boxer with very heavy hands.  They train with each other daily, push each other and they both want to ultimately someday fight in the UFC.  Justin loves to compete and loves to go against the best of the best, so he can always test himself.  He is humble, but don’t let that fool you.  The kid is a DOG.  He trains 6 days a week and enjoys every single minute of it.  Pay close attention folks, you may soon see both Justin and his brother Matt fighting in the UFC!
