Multiple Intimidation alums ready for the big leagues

Intimidation Clothing has long been a supporter of Local MMA and up-and-coming regional mixed martial arts talent, and has sponsored many fighters who have made it to the national level. Among these fighters are Stipe Miocic, Jessica Eye, Brian Rogers, Daniel Straus, Cody Garbrandt, Donny Walker and more.

Adam Milstead MMAThree more fighters who have been sponsored by the Intimidation brand in the past are also nearing UFC-level status, and could potentially sign with the organization in the near future.

Fast-rising heavyweight Adam Milstead (7-1) has won seven straight bouts, and all have been via stoppage. After fighting through some injuries, “The Prototype” is now healthy and racked up back-to-back TKO wins earlier this year in under two minutes each. Undefeated at heavyweight, the Pittsburgh native continues to be a force of destruction, as his wins over Lewis Rumsey and Robert Morrow show why he could be in the UFC before long. With the Octagon headed to his hometown in February, Milstead could be a great candidate to make his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 82.

Dan Spohn MMA - BellatorDan Spohn (12-4) has already tasted a bit of UFC success, as he was on The Ultimate Fighter 19 where he produced one of the sickest knockouts in show history in just 10 seconds as he stopped Tyler King in the preliminary round. Now back on the regional scene, Spohn has been dominant, producing a 4-0 record with three stoppage wins. The former NAAFS light heavyweight champion, “Dragon” recently took a calculated risk moving up to heavyweight where he captured the CFFC title with a second round knockout win over Zu Anyanwu in December.

Mark Cherico (9-1) says he’s retired, but the Intimidation alum continues to be active in MMA. After recently opening up a gym in his native Pittsburgh area, “The Pride of Bloomfield” continues to be incredibly popular in the area and could also be a perfect candidate for UFC Pittsburgh. Mark Cherico MMAMost recently, Cherico competed in what was announced as his last MMA bout, defeating Nate Landwehr via submission at Gladiators of the Cage 19 in October.

Team Intimidation knocks out the competition

May 20, 2014 by  
Filed under Local / Regional MMA, News

Throughout its history, Team Intimidation has come to be known for providing a wealth of highlight reel knockouts, from the Local MMA scene to televised bouts on AXS TV and on Spike TV & MTV2 with Bellator MMA. From being a longtime sponsor for notables like Brian “The Predator” Rogers, Dan “Dragon” Spohn, and more, the Intimidation name has become synonymous with the knockout in mixed martial arts.

Brian Rogers KO Bellator 119And recently, this streak has continued on a national stage and around the world.

At Bellator 119, longtime Team Intimidation member Brian “The Predator” Rogers produced yet another highlight reel flying knee knockout, when he put Adrian Miles to sleep in the second round of their middleweight bout. Rogers has produced some of the best knockouts in Bellator and MMA history, including his immortal flying knee over Vitor Vianna at Bellator 61 that has been named as the best in Bellator history multiple times. Rogers, who has produced 9 knockouts in 11 career victories, continues to be a fan favorite inside the Bellator cage.

Dan Spohn @ Bellator 51Dan Spohn made headlines with his 10-second knockout over Tyler King to kick off the season on The Ultimate Fighter 19, immediately making him a household name and favorite to win the season. Spohn (pictured, left) is no one-trick pony, however, as he also posted the fastest knockout in Bellator MMA history with  9-second flying knee over Dane Bonnigson at Bellator 51, and a TKO over UFC veteran Josh Hendricks at NAAFS: Caged Fury 15 that was the result of nasty elbows off of his back. In conjunction with his recent meteoric rise to the top of the mixed martial arts world, Intimidation has recently announced plans to release a signature tee for Spohn.

Jordan Parsons may be known as “Pretty Boy,” but the longtime member of Team Intimidation is also one of the best lightweight prospects in all of MMA. The Minnesota native recently made his Bellator MMA debut at Bellator 117, where he moved his record to 10-1 with a knockout just 4 seconds into the second round over Tim Bazer. He needed just two punches in the second frame, landing a perfectly time 1-2 combo to put Bazer out.

Brazilian Luis “Sapo” Santos has produced 34 knockouts in 60 career victories, and he has recently been laying waste to some of the best international fighters on XFC’s international shows in his native Brazil. After producing  four first-round knockouts under the XFC banner in the U.S. – including an incredible three via head kick – Santos put Alfredo Morales to sleep with a front kick at XFCi 3 in March.

Bellator 51 was a banner night for Intimidation, as along with Spohn’s knockout, Intimidation also sponsored lightweight Joey Holt in his flying knee victory over Clint Musser, and Alexis Vila as he produced his “shot heard round the world” knockout over former Bellator champion Joe Warren.

Nick Duell MMAAnd with another notable, Nick Duell stopped Jason Buck with a highlight reel upkick at NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 12 in 2012. Duell (pictured, right) is also a knockout artist, with 7 knockout victories in 11 career victories. He also holds notable KO/TKO victories over “The Ultimate Fighter” veterans Julian Lane, Kevin Knabjian, and Daniel Head.
