Pallas Athena Women’s Fighting Championship (Pallas Athena or PAWFC) has announced that competitive women’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) will return to Calgary on March 9, 2024, with PAWFC 3 at the Nutrien Western Events Centre at Stampede Park.
Pallas Athena is the first-of-its-kind in Western Canada, hosting competitive sporting events that showcase the best professional all-women MMA fighters from Canada and around the world. This March, fighters from various ages, weight classes and skill levels will take to the ring in Calgary once again to battle for the championship.
“Pallas Athena has given female combat athletes a platform where they are not just a preliminary part of an event, but they are the event,” said Jennica Wheeler, COO, PAWFC. “As a lifelong combat sport fan, the expansion of MMA to include female athletes has given myself and other fans the chance to see a hugely expanded roster of high-level athletes to watch and I’m extremely proud to have a small part in bringing this event to Calgary and the world stage.”
PAWFC launched with PAWFC 1 in January 2022, followed by the promotion’s second event in August of that year. No events were held in 2023.
