Another weekend of high profile sponsorships proved to be a success for Intimidation Clothing as both Intimidation sponsored fighters at Bellator 50 scored first round finishes. Alexander “Storm” Shlemenko scored a 1st round submission via standing guillotine choke as the Bellator Season 2 Middleweight Tournament winner advanced to the semifinals. Brian The Predator Rogers MMAFollowing the Shlemenko fight in the night’s co-main event, Brian “The Predator” Rogers (pictured) showed his incredible explosiveness in defeating Victor O’Donnell by TKO in round 1. With the wins Rogers and Shlemenko punch their tickets into the semifinals where they will square off against one another at Bellator 54 on October 15th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Meanwhile, a week ago Intimidation sponsored three of the four winners in the Welterweight Tournament quarterfinal fights at Bellator 49. Ben Saunders and Luis Santos were two of the three who featured shorts with the Intimidation logo as each advanced to the semifinals of the 170 pound tournament which will take place at Bellator 53. With two weeks of Bellator tournament bouts now complete, Intimidation sponsored fighters are 5-1 with each of those fights broadcast live on MTV2.

Intimidation continues their recent national sponsorship push with three fighters in Bantamweight Tournament and as many as seven fighters on the undercard this weekend at Bellator 51 in Canton, Ohio. Intimidation will officially announce sponsorships of Ed West, Luis Nogueira and Alexis Vila in the 135 pound tourney as well as notable undercard fighters Jessica Eye, Dan Spohn, Clint Musser and John Hawk.

Team Intimidation completes 5-3 night at NAAFS Fight Nite in the Flats

It is amazing the difference a year makes. One year ago Intimidation Clothing made a strong public debut at NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats VI debuting their Jason Dent signature shirt before a hostile crowd which featured Dent against Chris Lozano. Dent, along with two GriffonRawl amateur fighters were the lone fighters sponsored by Intimidation on what was, looking back, one of the best fight cards in the history of Ohio MMA. A year later Intimidation not only is a title sponsor of all NAAFS events, but also sponsored eight fighters including six pros on the Fight Nite in the Flats VII card.

NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats VII, the 2011 version, proved to be another packed house for the North American Allied Fight Series at the now named Jacobs’ Pavilion in downtown Cleveland. The night saw Intimidation go 4-2 in pro fighter sponsorships (with both fighters sponsored in the middleweight title fight) and 1-1 in amateur fights. After defending NAAFS Amateur Bantamweight Champion Isaiah Chapman (11-1) was prepped by Intimidation-sponsored cutman David Maldonado (pictured), Chapman made quick work of his opponent scoring a 1st round submission of Vision MMA’s Hussein Hmood. The only other amateur fight featuring an Intimidation-sponsored fighter saw Tyler Saltsman drop a unanimous decision to Cody Garbrandt in a decision that will alter the NAAFS amateur bantamweight division rankings.

The first pro fight of the night featured Evolve MMA’s Clint Musser (1-0) making his pro debut, a debut that turned out to be a good one with a 1st round TKO win.

As the title fights began, the heavyweight championship fight pitted 6’4″ Stipe Miocic against 5’9″ Bobby Brents. Miocic (6-0), widely-regarded as one of the top heavyweight prospects in all of MMA, scored a 2nd round TKO when a leg kick forced Brents (9-2) to tap out. In the middleweight title fight, defending champion AJ Aeschilmann (3-2) suffered a left knee injury in the first round but was able to score takedowns throughout the three rounds. But challenger Travis “The Terror” Clark (pictured) lived up to his nickname as he terrorized Aeschilman with kicks that cause the defending champ’s participation after round two to come into question. But while Aeschilmann showed the heart of a champion and answered the bell for round three, it was Clark who chalked up an eventual TKO win.

While the night did not end the way that the fans had hoped when Jessica Eye was submitted in round two by Aisling Daly, the night as a whole proved to be a huge success for both the fans of MMA in Northeast Ohio as well as the NAAFS organization. In a world of MMA promotions that have five or six events a year, the NAAFS puts on 25-30 events, more than anyone else in the Midwest and more than most any promotion in the world outside of the UFC.

In other action across the region Intimidation-sponsored Shane Chojnacki won his pro debut by 2nd round TKO on Friday night at the Central Pennsylvania Warrior Challenge event in Lancaster, PA. In total, Intimidation-sponsored pros went 5-2 for the weekend.
