John Hawk MMAHawk (10-5) continues his run in his return to heavyweight, as his victory over William Penn in March 2014 was the first fight for the former NAAFS heavyweight champ in the division since 2010.

Hawk has become known as one of the most durable fighters in the sport, including racking up a 2-1 win under the Bellator MMA banner with an upset win over Marcus Vanttinen at Bellator 66 highlighting his time in the organization.

Hawk will look to become the NAAFS heavyweight champion for the second time, as he won the title with a victory over Joe McCall in 2010 before dropping to light heavyweight. The title was then won by and later vacated by Intimidation alum Stipe Miocic when he signed with the UFC in 2011.

#LocalMMA Monday: NAAFS & Driven MMA

June 2, 2014 by  
Filed under Local / Regional MMA, News

The first installment of IntimidationMMA.com’s #LocalMMA Monday features perhaps the biggest name in all of Local MMA, as the co-branded NAAFS/Driven MMA organization kicks us off. Based out of Canton, Ohio, the North American Allied Fight Series was founded in 2005 as “Gladiator Fighting” with current CEO Greg Kalikas in conjunction with veteran kickboxer Duke Roufus. NAAFS in the FlatsSince then, the organization has promoted more than 125 live events in the Midwest and has become one of the most respected amateur leagues in the country.

Kalikas’ NAAFS developed into a powerhouse on the local scene, holding the majority of their events in Canton, Akron and Cleveland before eventually branching out from events in Northeast Ohio to hold events all over the state. Then the organization was one of the first promoters to hold an event in West Virginia when the state regulated MMA in 2012. Over its nearly decade as an organization, the NAAFS has come to be known as a leader in amateur MMA, women’s MMA, and producing top talent for the UFC, Bellator MMA and other national organizations.

Stipe Miocic UFCThe list of names that have competed inside the NAAFS cage reads like a who’s who of MMA, including current welterweight top contender Matt Brown, current UFC heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic, women’s MMA star Jessica Eye, UFC veterans Jason Dent, Forrest Petz, Ben Rothwell, Dave Herman, Phil Davis, Donny Walker and more along with current TUF 19 star Dan Spohn, former Bellator MMA Featherweight Champion Daniel Straus, Bellator knockout artists Brian Rogers and many more.

In addition to its top names, NAAFS has come to be known for featuring women’s MMA, spearheaded by the first woman of Ohio MMA, Jessica “Evil” Eye. Eye competed in the first women’s bout in NAAFS history, headlined the first all-female card, became the first female amateur NAAFS champion, and became the first female to headline a card featuring men for the organization as well. NAAFS has also featured other top female talent, including Aisling Daly, Carina Damm, Rebecca Heintzman, Jessica Zomcik, Tamikka Brents and more.

Donny Walker NAAFS ChampionOn top of all of this, the NAAFS is one of a limited number of Local MMA promotions to co-promote events with Bellator MMA having worked together  on Bellator 51 in Canton and Bellator 66 in Cleveland, Ohio and Bellator 71 in West Virginia.

While the pro fighters brought fans to NAAFS events, it has been the astounding amateur talent that has kept them there. The NAAFS National Amateur Series is a true proving ground for amateur fighters who want to make it to the next level, and many top names have claimed NAAFS amateur gold before turning pro. Those names include Isaiah Chapman, George Comer, Nick Duell, Jessica Eye, Jerrell Hodge, and many more.

“It is hard to deny the resume that the NAAFS has built in the past decade,” stated Luke Jernigan, President & CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “Now with Driven MMA they put on the cards that everyone else in the Midwest looks at and wishes they could duplicate. Few organizations have done more to further Local MMA in the USA, especially East of the Mississippi, as the NAAFS.”

The organization promotes many must-see events, including the annual “Fight Nite in the Flats” and “Rock N Rumble” summer events at Jacobs Pavilion in Downtown Cleveland, as well as their annual “Night of Champions” to award amateur titles.

John Hawk & StrongStyle wearing Local MMAIn 2014, the NAAFS became an all amateur series, with the berth of a new wing of the organization, Driven MMA. Driven MMA debuted in March 2014, and Driven MMA One was the biggest MMA card to hit Ohio in years. The event featured an all-pro lineup that showcased top fighters, including Bellator MMA veteran Dan Hornbuckle, UFC veteran Rodney Wallace, former NAAFS champion Frank Caraballo, and rising local stars like Chapman, Comer, Kyle Rozewski and more.

Now, the two wings will team up for the first time, as Driven MMA presents NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats 10 this weekend in Cleveland. The card features both professional and amateur talent, and it is headlined by Frank Caraballo taking on UFC veteran Tommy Hayden in a featherweight match-up. Also included on the card are several familiar names for Ohio MMA fans including Chapman, Rozewski, Hodge, RJ Buck, Dave Lastafka and more.

Weekend Recap: Chapman, Comer, Hawk, Morrow, Rozewski & Zomcik highlight record weekend for Intimidation at Colosseum Combat & Driven MMA events

March 1st marked one of the biggest days in Intimidation Clothing history, with three events sponsored in three different states and multiple fighters also representing the brand in action. Sponsoring two of the most successful and respected Local MMA promotions in the Midwest, Colosseum Combat MMA in Indiana and Driven MMA (powered by the NAAFS) in Ohio, the Intimidation brand was once again the most visible supporter of Local MMA in the region.

Jessica Zomcik WMMA The Intimidation crew was on hand at the inaugural Driven MMA event in Canton, Ohio, where fans flocked to the official booth all night while sponsored fighters went 5-2 inside the cage. The all professional event featured 12 bouts, including victories by the likes of Team Intimidaton’s “Big” John Hawk, Jessica “The Zombie” Zomcik, Isaiah “The Beast” Chapman, George “Bonesaw” Comer and Kyle “Kyote” Rozewski. In addition, five Intimidation alums fought on the card with Tony Castillo, Jr., Maxim Grishin, Reggie Parks and Wes Hanson all picking up wins.

Hawk picked up a victory in his first appearance at heavyweight since 2011, as the 3-time Bellator MMA veteran moved to 9-5 overall with a unanimous decision win over fellow Intimidation sponsored heavyweight William “King” Penn (7-4). One of two fighters with his Intimidation signature tee on sale at the event, Hawk is a mainstay with Team Intimidation as a product of Strong Style in MMA.

Zomcik – who sported the “I ♥ #WMMA” tee on her way to the cage – was successful in her pro debut, as the Evolve MMA product picked up where she left off in her amateur career with a 5th straight win overall since switching camps to Evolve MMA. Isaiah Chapman MMAZomcik (pictured, right) completed her 9-3 amateur MMA career by winning the Tuff-N-Uff Women’s 145lb Tournament in November and is starting to be seen nationally as one of the top prospects in Women’s MMA.

Chapman (pictured, left) made his return to the cage in nearly a year after an injury, and picked up a unanimous decision over Charles Stanford (4-2) to move to 5-1 overall. With his Intimidation signature tee on display and for sale throughout the night, Chapman, a long-time member of Team Intimidation, got back on track after ending his amateur career at 12-1 and starting his pro career at 4-0.

Comer continued his run as the most consistent lightweight in Ohio, as he moved to 4-1 overall with a dominant 3-round submission victory over Anthony Morgan (3-1). After a 9-0 amateur career saw Comer struggle to finish his opponents, it is apparent that his training at GriffonRawl MMA is paying off as he scored his third finish in four pro wins.

Kyle Rozewski MMAAnd finally, Rozewski (pictured, right) picked up a win with a first round triangle submission over fellow Team Intimidation member Dustin Kempf. Rozewski, who signed an expanded sponsorship deal with Intimidation earlier this year, earned his fourth win in five fights with each of the four wins coming via stoppage.

Meanwhile, at the sponsored Colosseum Combat XXVIII event in Kokomo, Indiana, sponsored fighter Robert “The Destroyer” Morrow (13-15) successfully defended his light heavyweight title, as he moved to 7-3 in his last 10 fights with a first round TKO victory over Keith Smetana. The win earned him the “Performance of the Night” honors from BluegrassMMA, who were there covering the event. While Intimidation planned to have multiple others fighters sponsored at the event, between injuries and no-show opponents, Morrow was the lone fighter sponsored on the night.

Finally, Intimidation sponsored the Cashfeddy Fight League, a newly-formed Michigan MMA promotion in Grand Rapids.
