Shaianna "Yaya" Rincon is a professional mixed martial artist from Vacaville, California. Yaya has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the Invicta Fighting Championship, but like many pro fighters, it hasn't been an easy path. With an amateur record of 4-0, and accolades like- "2014 California Fights Bantamweight of the Year", and "2017 No Gi World Champion Blue Belt", it might surprise you that her future in professional MMA was once uncertain. After taking a year off in 2016 to complete her Psychology Degree, Yaya returned to the sport and quickly landed herself a contract with Invicta. Now, she is 2-0 as a Pro, and she is looking to make a run for the top spot in her division.
