Intimidation Clothing Athlete of the Month: Nick “The Savage” Duell

It’s what all fans clamor for: an exciting knockout to get them out of their seats and make them go “Wow.”

That’s what Nick “The Savage” Duell has become known for, the ability to finish a fight with a punch or kick at any moment. Nick Duell MMAThat’s why Intimidation Clothing is proud to announce that Duell is the Athlete of the Month for April 2013.

Most recently, Duell stood out on the extremely deep NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 13 card, as he stopped The Ultimate Fighter 16 veteran Julian Lane with strikes in the second round of their bout in Duell’s native Canton, Ohio over the weekend. The finishing sequence started with a left kick to the body, after which Duell finished off an injured Lane to take home the TKO victory.

A member of the Strong Style Fight Team, Duell trains with some of the best fighters in Ohio, including UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic, Bellator middleweight Brian Rogers, UFC veteran Forrest Petz, top-ranked female flyweight Jessica Eye, and more. Ranked as the No. 3 professional welterweight in Ohio by OHMMA.com, Duell owns notable victories over Lane, Bellator and TUF 9 veteran Kevin Knabjian, and TUF 12 veteran Daniel Head.
