The United States Fight League is a IRS 501 c 3 non profit regulatory and sanctioning organization that fosters and supports Youth and Military Mixed Martial Arts.

Pankration is the oldest Martial art on record and was the most prestigious event of the Ancient Olympics. The rules were brutal and simple, all but eye gouging and biting was allowed while the referees enforced their rules with a large stick.

All funds donated are tax deductible and managed by the parental advisory committee, 100% of donated funds are for support of youth athletes & teams.  

Modern Pankration is a Mixed Martial Art that encompasses Grappling and Limited Contact Striking. Rules emphasize technique and sportsmanship making this a safe sport, suitable for competitors of all ages from all styles of Martial Art.

The primary emphasis of the USFL is to develop strong youth character from rigorous competition.
