Fighter Bio


Savant Young (born June 19, 1976) is an American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. He currently fights for the Tokyo Sabres of the International Fight League.

Although his first professional bout was in 1998, in June 2006 Savant decided he wanted to begin training mixed martial arts full-time. In February 2007 Savant won his first fight in the International Fight League by defeating Ed West in a unanimous decision.

While training part-time, Young worked in post-production at a video editing company, making the feats of others come alive on the screen. An avid video game player, Young has also had a life-long fascination with cars, building and competing in them in street races while in high school.
