Paradigm Management Takes Over Ken Pavia's MMA Agents Client Roster


Paradigm MMA Management, a subsidiary of Paradigm Sports Management, along with Mishal Abul from Kuwait, owner of Titanium World Trading, announces the acquisition of MMAagents’ client roster.

Paradigm Sports Management, LLC is a full service sports management firm specializing in representing NFL and MLB athletes since its inception in 2009. Enlisting a staff of former athletes and proven industry professionals, Paradigm’s team provides athletes with elite career management. The core objective of Paradigm MMA Management is to provide the same superior level of service, expertise and professionalism to MMA fighters that Paradigm Sports Management provides to their NFL and MLB athletes.

Paradigm Founder and President, Audie Attar, was a former High School All American and safety/linebacker at UCLA. Attar graduated from UCLA with a bachelor in science, before earning his MBA from Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business & Management, while simultaneously earning a Masters Certificate in dispute resolution from Pepperdine Law School’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution. For the first seven years of his post football career, Attar worked at a prominent NFL agency, working with current and future hall of famers.

Mishal Abul has had a successful career as a self-employed international businessman in a variety of industries. In the mid-late 90’s Abul was an importer for the Royal family of Kuwait, and in 2002 Abul moved to Las Vegas to launch his own real estate and mortgage company. In 2006, Abul went back to Kuwait and formed Abul World, a company that fulfilled US military contracts during the war in Iraq. Most recently in 2010, Abul formed Titanium World Trading, a general trading company.

Through this entrepreneurial period, Abul also found himself falling in love with mixed martial arts. In 1996, Abul started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, grappling and kickboxing under John “The Machine” Lober and Rob “Razor” McCullough at L.A Boxing in Huntington Beach, CA. In 2010, Abul formed Titanium World Trading in Dubai, UAE, and began distributing apparel for Razor Clothing, Cage Fighter, Silver Star, and others before joining forces with Paradigm Sports Management.
