In addition to selling at Bellator 71 in Chester, West Virginia, at an event that featured several local fighters and the opening round of the Summer Series 2012 Light Heavyweight Tournament, Intimidation representatives were also on hand at NFC 7: Field of Fury in Carroll, Ohio talking to many of the top MMA related businesses from the Columbus/Central Ohio area. Once the dust settled the weekend proved to be a highly successful one with new sponsorships and additional dealers expected to come from the events.

Now 4-2, Stansbury is riding high with four straight wins and some new hardware.
