Fighters

An athletes-owned company

Pallas Athena is an athlete’s company where everyone is encouraged and valued for their blood, sweat, and tears. As fighters ourselves, we have a personal understanding of the industry from the fighter’s perspective. We’ve experienced the limitations and challenges, and we know there is a better way. “What’s good for the fighter is what’s good for the company”  - this is one of the driving forces behind PAWFC. 

We’re here to give back to you, the fighter, a place where you can focus on training and improving your skills for upcoming fight events.

Our mission is to:

  • Have athletes fairly compensated inside and outside of the ring with above-average purse pay, attendance bonuses, and ownership of content
  • Provide MMA fight opportunities for women in an industry dominated by men
  • Highlight and empower warrior women stepping to the forefront of the industry
  • Offer sponsorships so athletes can focus on advancing their skills 
  • Offer opportunities for athletes to grow within the company, rather than the company grow solely on the backs of fighters
  • Maintain a culture where the company is focused on the athletes, not revenue
  • Provide airtime for amateur fighters to be noticed 

Simply put - we’re here to change the game.
