On August 12th, WMMA pioneer and Invicta FC matchmaker will return to the cage for the first time to take on “King” Reina Miura in a 143-pound bout at Rizin FF 12 in Nagoya, Japan.
Young is one of WMMA’s most battle-tested veterans– having shared the cage with the likes of Miesha Tate, Gina Carano, Leslie Smith, Julie Kedzie, and more. Holding a record of 7-9-1, Young’s last fight was in 2014– a decision loss to Raquel Pa’aluhi at Invicta FC 9.
Reina has spent all of her time as a professional between RIZIN and Deep Jewels– reigning undefeated before running into Cindy Dandois in December. After her first defeat, she’s rattled off two straight wins at Deep Jewels 19 and 20, respectively.
