After a victory in her debut Young entered HOOKnSHOOT's 2007 Women's Grand Prix. She won the tournament impressively with 3 KO's for a total fight time of 1:45, this included a head kick victory over Miesha Tate.


In 2008, Young was chosen as opponent of the then undefeated Gina Carano at EliteXC. At the end of the second round Young was deemed unable to continue by the referee, who as a result declared Carano winner by TKO.
