According to an Oct. 29 tweet from Americana MMA, Carla Esparza signature t-shirts are now just six dollars on the Americana MMA website.
“@CarlaEsparza1 signature shirts are now $6! Get yours!” the apparel company tweeted.
Americana MMA, located in Toronto, Canada, are true fans of hardcore, punk, metal and MMA. They make t-shirts for the love of it and to help the fighters increase brand awareness, not just to make a quick buck.
“Americana’s goal is do what we do for love and fun; there is an unexplainable thrill of working with awesome fighters and bands – we love our music, we love our sport, so Americana is the wonderful love child of the two things we love,” the company states on its website. “All of us have another day job, and we see this as a complete hobby so we don’t pay ourselves. We literally take the profits and pay our sponsored fighters, and bands we work with.
“The remaining profit is used to pump out new designs. We don’t have dreams of becoming a huge corporation. We have a strong belief in supporting the things we love, so for every purchase that is made on our website we literally feed the athletes and bands that we support. If you really want to feel like you’re supporting bands and fighters without corporate bullshit and percentages lost due to big management companies, rest assured, Americana staff don’t get paid, we do it because we love it.”
Americana MMA makes apparel that the average working-class MMA fan can afford, so what’s not to love about that?
The company has an elite roster of athletes, including Invicta FC strawweights Bec Hyatt and Carla Esparza. They also make Felice Herrig and Douglas Lima t-shirts, plus hot designs from War Machine and Pat Militech.
