Mofo Wear Sponsoring MMA Fighter

Tod Hunter
LOS ANGELES — Clothing label Mofo Wear officially is sponsoring and designing clothes for Trenell "Savant" Young, a professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter.

"He is my homie since we were youngsters in the late '80s. He's straight from the streets of South Central Los Angeles," Jimmy Mofo, owner and designer of Mofo Wear, said. "Savant is like family to me and we go way back to when I was a bouncer in the '80s and '90s and he was kickin' ass in the streets of South Central. It only makes sense that he should be the first MMA fighter Mofo Wear wants to sponsor and have him rep Mofo Wear."

Mofo Wear is adding Young to its ongoing marketing efforts with adult performers. Jimmy Mofo is often seen at adult industry events, and Mofo Wear models have included Belladonna, Flower Tucci, Olivia O'Lovely and Avy Scott. MofoWear has exhibited at adult industry shows including Erotica LA and Adultcon.

Young has been ranked No. 9 featherweight in the world on May 28, according to the MMA fighter rankings. He recently won the MMA "Shooto" event in Japan at featherweight and last year he was a lightweight fighter in the International Fight League with the Tokyo Sabres.

Young's next bout will be at the Affliction Banned pay-per-view fight event July 19 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

"I love fighting and have been a fan of MMA fighting since the first UFC," Mofo said. "I could not have chosen a better fighter or better event than the 'Affliction Banned' to make Mofo Wear's official introduction into the MMA fighting world."
