Intimidation Clothing is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of Jordan “Pretty Boy” Parsons, who is set to make his Bellator MMA debut next week at Bellator 117. Parsons (9-1) will take on Tim Bazer (14-15) as part of the prelims in Council Bluffs, Iowa, which will air live on Spike.com.

Jordan Parsons MMAIntimidation has been a longtime sponsor of the Minnesota native Parsons, including sponsoring him in his most recent bout – a win over Damien Hill at a Driller MMA event this past December, which earned him the organization’s lightweight title. The 23-year-old is a former CFA featherweight champion, but he was forced out of the cage for 12 months dealing with a nasty staph infection and other setbacks after his lone loss in June 2012. He returned successfully last year and looked better than ever in improving to 9-1 in his pro MMA career.

Considered one of the top featherweight prospects in MMA, Parsons signed with Bellator MMA in February. He made a name for himself by winning the $20,000 CFA featherweight tournament to claim the organization’s first 145-pound title. He went through James Polodna, James Cianci and Danny Chaves en route to winning the CFA 145 pound belt in February 2012 at the CFA 5 event. In his first title defense, Parsons was upset by Lazar Stojadinovi to lose his belt. After the aforementioned year off, he returned to his hometown last year and earned victories over Derek Getzel and Hill. In his nine pro wins Parsons has finished four opponents with two submissions and two TKO victories and has been sponsored by the Intimidation brand multiple times throughout his pro career.

Year In Review: 2013 proves to be highly successful for the growth of the Intimidation brand

At this time of year we hear much about resolutions to get better and looking back at what has been accomplished over the past 12 months. Here at Intimidation Clothing, things are not much different, although the moniker of “getting better” is not something we take for granted – it’s a daily goal. After a 2012 that saw Intimidation Clothing continue to sponsor Bellator events and a host of top-tier regional MMA promotions as well as fighters on major TV networks, 2013 had a lot to live up to. And indeed it did as 2013 proved to be a banner year for our company breaking every known record the company had established in past years. Since starting this company in late 2009, the Intimidation brand has steadily grown into one of the most recognizable names in the MMA and combat sports industry, and we take a look back at the year that was in our 2013 Year in Review.

Charlie Brenneman MMAThe year began strong with the sponsorship of one of the more high-profile MMA fighters Intimidation has worked with as Charlie Brenneman (pictured, right) fought in Altoona, Pennsylvania on January 8th, defeating a fighter we would later come to sponsor and become a big fan of in Eric Irvin. Brenneman, a 8-fight UFC vet who made the move from 170lbs to lightweight in 2013, has since gone 4-0 at 155lbs as he looks to once again make a name for himself in the UFC.

Also early in January, the impact of Jessica Eye’s win over Zoila Gurgel in December 2011 was seen as she rocketed to the top of the Women’s MMA rankings. Eye, who bounced between Bellator MMA and the highly-respected and Intimidation sponsored NAAFS, was ranked as the #1 female fighter in the world at 125lbs before announcing the move to 135lbs late in 2013.

As the month of January wore on the Intimidation brand continued to get high-profile exposure as Brian Rogers presented at the World MMA Awards in Las Vegas and AXS TV’s Best of 2012 featured a variety of Intimidation-sponsored fighters. As Bellator MMA geared up for their debut on Spike TV, and flew both Rogers and Eye out for the premier at Bellator 85, Intimidation continued its strong push on the Local MMA scene into Indiana. With a fully-stocked crew traveling to events put on by Colosseum Combat MMA, Mad Wolf Promotions/Art of War, Rocktagon MMA, Chris Lytle’s Midwest Fight Series, HookNShoot and more, Intimidation Clothing was able to replicate our strong presence as the biggest supporter of Local MMA in Ohio and do the same in Indiana. Chris Lytle at Intimidation boothMeanwhile, the aforementioned Rocktagon MMA promotion and Intimidation began their partnership in January 2013 ti increase Intimidation’s TV exposure and add more regional events to the company’s slate as Rocktagon has held events in Ohio, Indiana, Texas, California and more.

In February, longtime Team Intimidation member Dan “Dragon” Spohn made his debut for the UVC in Columbus, Ohio and started a memorable year on a high note. Spohn scored submission wins at both UVC 22 in January and UVC 23 in May to bounce back from a rough 2012 and open doors for greater things in his MMA career. As Spohn headlined the UVC events, Intimidation continued their support of the Ultimate Victory Challenge promotion in Columbus, Ohio throughout the year as the two organizations expect to work together for years to come.

Brian Rogers, Isaiah Chapman & Jessica EyeIntimidation’s annual trip to the Arnold Sports Festival took place in March where the brand featured Eye, Rogers, Spohn, TUF 7 vet Luke Zachrich, UFC & TUF 10 vet Wes Sims and fast-rising prospect Isaiah Chapman signing autographs at the company’s booth. The Arnold once again provided a plethora of picture opportunities and fantastic exposure for the brand and featured the public release of Intimidation’s popular Irish “Shamrocked” tee design.

March continued strong with the brand sponsoring explosive knockout artist Chidi Njokuani live on AXS TV at RFA 7 near Denver, Colorado and continued with the sponsorship of NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 13 in Canton, Ohio – one of the best fight cards in Ohio MMA history. Featuring Intimidation sponsored Isaiah Chapman, Frank Caraballo, George Comer, John Hawk, Nick Duell, Antonio Castillo, Jr. and Julian Lane along with Intimidation alum Travis Clark and later-signed Jessica Zomcik, the event not only had a truly stacked fight card but was also a sell-out that thrilled the fans in attendance.

Jessica Eye MMA - Bellator2013 also saw Intimidation Clothing continue its strong support of women’s MMA. As long-time Team Intimidation member Jessica “Evil” Eye continued her winning streak and made the jump in weight to join the UFC, the company also continued their work with another awesome member of the current UFC bantamweight division in Jessamyn “The Gun” Duke. After Duke was the company’s Athlete of the Month in March 2013, she proceeded to fight at Invicta FC 5 in Kansas City, sign autographs at the company’s booth at XFC 23 in Louisville, Kentucky in April, and later appear on TUF 18 on Fox Sports 1 before earning her roster spot with a win on the TUF Finale in November. Intimidation also sponsored Tanikka Brents, Rebecca Heintzman, Amber Stautzenberger, Kelly Warren and Kaitlin Young during the year and inked the top-ranked amateur at 145lbs in the world, Jessica Zomcik, to a sponsorship contract. A product of Evolve MMA in Medina, Ohio, Zomcik went on to win the 2013 Tuff-N-Uff Featherweight Championship in Las Vegas to cap off her amateur career.

The company continued its strong support of the Local MMA scene by signing on to sponsor all Hardrock MMA events in 2013 and beyond in late March and continued the strong push into the Kentucky MMA scene in sponsoring the XFC’s return to the Bluegrass State at XFC 23 in Louisville on April 19th. Meanwhile, the company continued their growth outside of MMA in signing then 8-time Amateur National Champion boxer Cam F. Awesome (pictured, right) in early April. Awesome, who has had a banner year in 2013 as he pushes forward towards the 2016 Olympics, is a plant-based athlete and has won more titles in his weight class than anyone in the history of USA boxing. Cam F Awesome - BoxingHe is also a well-known local role model in Kansas City and is a proud Big of the Big Brother Big Sister program. and a strong advocate of cancer prevention and awareness via plant-based nutrition.

As April continued, Intimidation sponsorship of many of the best prospects in MMA continued seeing Mark Cherico and Brian Camozzi both continue to fight while sponsored by the Intimidation brand. Cherico (5-0), one of Pittsburgh’s most popular fighters and Camozzi (2-1), the Colorado-based lightweight and younger brother of UFC middleweight Chris Camozzi, continued to show the growth of the Intimidation brand across the nation.

May was a slow month for MMA but saw the Intimidation brand sponsor UVC 23 in Columbus as well as main event winner Dan Spohn (pictured, left). Dan Spohn MMAIn addition to Spohn, Intimidation sponsored Ronin Training Center owner Luke Zachrich, StrongStyle MMA’s Joe Heiland and more at another event rich with ties to the Intimidation brand. Later in the month, Intimidation-sponsored Brian Rogers and Jessica Eye made a second public appearance in Andover, Ohio’s Pymatuning Valley Middle School where the two athletes spoke on the importance of making good life choices, the effects of bullying and more.

Early in June each year Intimidation Clothing prepares for one major event – the NAAFS’ Fight Nite in the Flats event in Cleveland, Ohio. The biggest annual MMA event in the state of Ohio, the 2013 version, Fight Nite in the Flats IX, featured scheduled fights for Intimidation sponsored UFC vets Jason Dent and Forrest Petz, top-ranked female fighter Jessica Eye and Terry Blackwell, Brian Camozzi, George Comer, Maxim Grishin, Torrance Taylor and a variety of top amateurs.

The summer months saw Intimidation make two of the biggest moves in company history adding official distributors in Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. Working together with newly appointed Director of Sales Wes Jones, Intimidation President & CEO Luke Jernigan stated that “the International growth of the sport of MMA cannot be ignored and Intimidation Clothing intends to continue to be a part of this global economic impact.” Kyle Rozewski w/Luke JerniganThe company continues to push forward sponsoring fighters in International events including Cody Stevens at OneFC and Lee Morrison for M-1 Global, with more announcements expected in early 2014.

2013 saw Intimidation continue to build on their regional MMA growth sponsoring events and fighters in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Minnesota, North Dakota, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Idaho, Nevada, California and more as well as big cities like Cleveland, Chicago, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Buffalo, Kansas City, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Akron, Boise, Canton, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Toledo and Las Vegas. It also saw Brian “The Predator” Rogers continue to make appearances on behalf of Bellator MMA including the BET Awards in Los Angeles, California. In addition, Rogers’ Bellator 61 flying knee KO of Vitor Vianna was once again named the #1 Knockout in Bellator’s history in July.

Two big pro/am MMA events from the NAAFS took place in Northeast Ohio in August as Intimidation sponsored both Caged Vengeance 14 in Carrollton and Rock ‘N Rumble 7 later in the month in Cleveland. At the Carrollton event Intimidation Clothing and Kyle “Kyote” Rozewski (pictured with Jernigan, above on right) began working together and doors opened almost immediately. Local MMA Series from IntimidationA native of the Buffalo, New York area, Rozewski has proven to be a great asset for the brand. In addition to getting Intimidation on board with gyms, fighters, promoters and media outlets from Western New York, Rozewski himself continues to build a name for himself inside the cage as a featherweight and outside of the cage as a commentator for the TNT Fight Series in Buffalo and for Pinnacle FC in Pittsburgh.

August also saw the release of Intimidation’s popular “Support Local MMA” t-shirts (pictured, left). After years of supporting the local MMA scene alongside MMAmadhouse, Bluegrass MMA, Cage Craze, OHMMA.com and a plethora of promoters and gyms, the Intimidation brand decided to put that support on, of all things, a t-shirt.

Brian Rogers MMANew signature shirts for multiple fighters were released in 2013 including the Isaiah “The Beast” Chapman tee in March, the Mark “The Pride of Bloomfield” Chercio signature tee in July and Brian Rogers’ second Intimidation signature tee featuring his flying knee KO (pictured, right). In addition, TUF 18 star Jessamyn “The Gun” Duke joined the Intimidation signature tee line, reserved for “championship level professionals” during the Fall of 2013 during her run on The Ultimate Fighter. The complete line of Intimidation MMA fighter signature shirts can be found online at IntimidationClothing.com.

Intimidate Cancer made its debut in late August and has continued to grow since then. With a popular Facebook page and the addition of 10 different ribbon colors for added cancer awareness, fans can rest assured knowing a portion of the proceeds from each shirt sold go back to cancer research and awareness. In addition, Intimidation Clothing’s Intimidate Cancer line is available for private fundraisers to help families in need.

Intimidate CancerIn September Intimidation Clothing signed on to sponsor their first two MMA events outside of the USA with MMA Battle Arena in the UK and Extreme Cage Combat in Canada. Sticking with the plan to find solid, strategic partnerships outside of the USA, Intimidation’s role as the biggest supporter of Local MMA soon became a moniker that applied to more than just the USA. Meanwhile, closer to home, Intimidation sponsored its first event in the Buffalo area in late September as the Buffalo and Western NY market became a bigger focus of the company’s regional growth plan.

As October began, Intimidation’s own Brian Rogers joined StrongStyle teammate Stipe Miocic teaching a MMA seminar in Toronto. Mojo Horne MMAThe company also sponsored consecutive MMA events in Akron as the NAAFS and EFP both scored successful events while the Indianapolis market saw two events in the same weekend with the MFS and Art of War promotions both staying busy the second weekend of October. Cincinnati’s own Mojo Horne (pictured, right) added another win at a Absolute Action MMA event in Northern Kentucky and the brand sponsored Mansfield, Ohio’s own Cody Stevens as he fought MMA legend Shinya Aoki in Singapore. As Jessica Eye made her UFC debut in successful fashion, another Intimidation alum signed with the UFC in Indiana’s own Anthony Lapsley.

2013 also featured the definition of Team Intimidation to include more than just MMA fighters. In addition to high level grapplers Pablo Castro and Robby Malof, youth grappler Pito Castro and decorated amateur boxer Cam F. Awesome, Intimidation’s sponsorships of the 614 Mud Militia in multiple Tough Mudder competitions began to open doors for the brand. It was followed by the sponsorship of 15-year old BMX standout Chris Peterie, rodeo cowboy Gearen Hale, figure competitor Tonya Rae Hickey and more. That trend is expected in 2014 with details expected to be announced soon.

November was Jessica Zomcik’s time to shine as the top-ranked ammy proved to be worthy of her ranking in taking the women’s 145lb Tuff-N-Uff title in Las Vegas. Jessica Zomcik WMMA - Tuff-N-UffAs Intimidation continued their growth in Indianapolis adding the MMA Fit Club as an official dealer, the brand continued to build upon their strong Indiana presence sponsoring Colosseum Combat MMA once again as well as main event title challenger Danny Surface.

December saw Intimidation lock in deals with two companies expected to be a major piece of the company’s growth in 2014. The Florida-based XFC, which aired all 2012 and 2013 events on AXS TV, featured the Intimidation brand inside their cage at XFC 27 in Muskegon, Michigan and will continue to bring added exposure to the Intimidation name in 2014. Meanwhile the Vegas Fight Tour, which takes fans to the top gyms in Las Vegas, Nevada and features Intimidation prizes and giveaways, was also inked to a deal to help both companies get added exposure. Meanwhile, Intimidation stayed busy on December 7th sponsoring events in the Buffalo, NY area as well as Akron, OH as the TNT Fight Series and NAAFS were both in action. As the year came to a close, former CFA featherweight champ Jordan Parsons continued his winning streak to improve to 9-1 with a win close to home in Minnesota. Vegas Fight Tour - Las VegasOn the final weekend of 2013, Intimidation was able to sponsor Evolve MMA’s Justin “Harry” Lester wrestling seminar as the 4-time state champion in Ohio and 2012 Olympian instructed fans at the gym in Medina, Ohio.

“Looking back, I could not be much happier about the way things have gone in 2013 for our brand,” stated Luke Jernigan, President & CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “I expect fans will see the continued, unmatched support of the Local MMA scene in 2014 as well as some very strategic expansion into other sports.”

In his last outing, Parsons was upset by Lazar Stojadinovi to lose his belt almost exactly one year ago. In his seven pro wins Parsons has finished three opponents with one submission and two TKO victories and has been sponsored by the Intimidation brand multiple times throughout his pro career.

Intimidation Clothing sponsored Tamikka Brents calls out Fallon Fox – “I want the fight bad”

Top 10 ranked Tamikka Brents wants to fight Fallon Fox saying the recent publicity around Fox is “setting Women’s MMA back”

Tamikka Brents has heard enough about Fallon Fox and she’s ready to prove to the world that she will back up her words. The Top 10 ranked Brents said “I want the fight bad” in reference to Fox, a transgender fighter who has gained significant notoriety and attention while fighting for the CFA. Fox, who scored a 3rd round win on Friday night at CFA 11 over Allanna Jones on AXS TV, improved to 3-0 in her pro MMA career. Tamikka Brents MMABorn a male who fathered a child before having gender reassignment surgery in 2006, Fox was highly publicized by the CFA and several news outlets before her CFA 11 fight.

Tamikka Brents (2-0 pro) is one of several top-rated female fighters on Intimidation’s sponsorship roster. In addition to #1 ranked pro 125lb star Jessica Eye, Intimidation is also a top sponsor for Invicta bantamweight Jessamyn Duke, top ranked female featherweight Jessica Zomcik and more. Brents, like Eye and Zomcik, is a veteran of the Intimidation sponsored and highly respected NAAFS promotion where Brents fought three times as an amateur. She was the 2010 NAAFS amateur lightweight champion and compiled an 8-0-1 record including six finishes in her amateur career.

Competing in MMA since 2009, the 24-year-old Illinois native is a product of Team Warrior Concepts, and her brother Bobby is an accomplished heavyweight MMA fighter. The featherweight made her much anticipated pro MMA debut in November 2012 after several fights fell through and followed with a unanimous decision win at Invicta FC 4. Her most recent fight fell through in April as she continues to have trouble finding willing opponents.

Statement from Tamikka Brents:

“I am tired of Fox getting all this publicity just for being a transgender fighter rather than having great skills. I think it’s unfair anyway but as long as the opponent knows and accepts the fight then go ahead… I mean Allana took her to the third and she’s not even a 145er; she’s a more of a 135er who can probably go even lower to 125 pounds. She’s using all that attention as a good publicity tactic – go ahead and ride that free publicity train as long as you can. I’ll gladly derail that s#*t quickly so the world can go back to giving the publicity and notice to the female fighters who earn it. It just pisses me off that Women’s MMA has fought to get away from being seen as a side show. She’s using that to further her career while setting Women’s MMA back in the process.”
