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.

Intimidation Alumni Update: Rogers & Spohn face big fights this weekend

Multiple Intimidation Clothing alumni have been making waves around the sport of mixed martial arts, from the UFC to top regional promotions and beyond.

Dan Spohn UFCA cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter 19,” Dan “Dragon” Spohn (@dragonspohn) has gone on a hot streak since his lone UFC appearance following the show, winning three straight bouts in regional action. Now, the longtime light heavyweight and former NAAFS 205b champion is about to get heavy, as the Ohio native is set to bulk up to the heavyweight division, where he will challenge Zu Anyanwu for the CFFC heavyweight title at CFFC 53 on Dec. 4 in Philadelphia. Fans interested in watching the bout can order the fight on GFL.tv.

Spohn’s signature Dragon t-shirt is one of the most unique designs in Intimidation Clothing history, and fans can pick up the shirt right today, Cyber Monday, for just $10.

Another longtime sponsored fighter, Brian “The Predator” Rogers (@BRogthePredator) is set to make his 11th appearance inside the Bellator cage at Bellator MMA 147 on Dec. 4. The Ohio native – who now lives and trains in Denver, Colorado – is set to bulk up to the light heavweight division, where he will take on Strikeforce veteran Virgil Zwicker in a 205-pound bout. The fight will air on the main card live on Spike TV. brog-training05_0913Rogers is known for some of the most vicious knockouts in Bellator history, as his flying knee has become a signature and made him a fan favorite.

Fans can pick up his iconic “flying knee” signature tee in the Intimidation store on Cyber Monday for just $10.

Despite a 9-1 record, popular fighter Mark “The Pride of Bloomfield” Cherico (@MarkChericoMMA) has announced his retirement from the sport of MMA. The Pinnacle FC and Gladiators of the Cage featherweight champ has instead decided to focus on running his new gym, as Mark Cherico’s Martial Arts & Fitness will open soon in the Pittsburgh area. Fans still hope to see “The Pride” in the cage sometime in the future.

Two fighters who were long sponsored by Intimidation Clothing recently put on a memorable performance in their matchup at Pinnacle FC 12 over Thanksgiving week. Khama “The Death Star” Worthy (@thedeathstar_1) and Antonio “Mexican Muscle” Castillo Jr. (@CastilloJR_MMA) showed why they have been fan favorites with a fight of the year performance in their co-main event. After Castillo dominated for much of the fight, the two spent time throwing flurries in rounds 2 and 3. Castillo dropped Worthy twice in the second round, but Worthy came out charging hard in the third round, landing a right hand and then finishing shots on the ground to earn the knockout. Check out this memorable fight here.

Jordan Parsons MMAPart of Intimidation’s massive growth in the Minnesota area, Jordan “Pretty Boy” Parsons (@PrettyBoyMMA_JP) has made a name for himself under the Bellator MMA banner. After a KO win in his first outing, Parsons submitted then 30-0 fighter Julio Cesar Neves. He recently lost his first fight for Bellator, but he figures to be a name to watch in the featherweight division in 2016.

Another fighter who has been sponsored by Intimidation and has long been a friend of the brand, Daniel Straus (@DanielStraus), is once again the Bellator MMA featherweight champion. The Cincinnati native defeated Patricio “Pitbull” Freire on his third attempt to claim the 145-pound title for a second time at Bellator 145 on Nov. 6.
