Trenell Young (born June 19, 1976) is an American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter.

Mixed martial artsEdit

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. Savant had an OK run with the IFL, and that gave him an opportunity to fight Takeshi Inoue at Shooto. Despite Inoue being heavily favored, Young pulled off the upset and beat him by Unanimous decision. Young has stated that this win is the reason he was offered a fight contract with the new Affliction Clothing Promotion. Savant fought at their first event, Affliction Banned, losing by second-round armbar submission against UFC veteran Mark Hominick.

Outside MMAEdit

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.

Personal lifeEdit

Savant and his wife Rahima have two children, a girl and a boy. His mother's name is Debra Baldwin.[1] [2]
