Emmons returned to his winning ways earlier this year, when he stepped up on 8 days’ notice at Pinnacle FC 7 and surprised hometown favorite A.J. Bosley by winning via submission in the first round.

Emmons went on a 3-fight winning streak after dropping his pro debut, and is looking to continue another winning streak after the win in Pittsburgh. Emmons, who also fights at 145lbs, will step into the HFC cage for the first time after defeating Matthew “The Care Bear” Perry in January 2012.

This weekend was another big one for Intimidation Clothing. The MMA apparel company continued their momentum throughout the Midwest while strengthening their growing presence in the Southwest USA at a variety of events. Intimidation staff was on hand selling at two events in Northeast Ohio, Dan Bobish’s Ultimate Cage Battles in Parma and NAAFS: Proving Ground in Akron.

Daron Cruickshank MMAIntimidation-sponsored fighters included Columbus’ Billy Vaughan, who dropped a razor-thin split decision to hometown favorite and UFC vet Joe Jordan in Pikeville, Kentucky on Friday night. On Saturday night, Cleveland’s Forrest “The Meat Cleaver” Petz scored a TKO win in the 2nd round over UFC, Strikeforce & Bellator vet John Kolosci in Valparaiso, Indiana. Meanwhile, in Parma, Ohio, Daron Cruickshank (pictured) of Wayne, Michigan scored a split decision win over Tiawan Howard at Bobish’s UCB event. At the same event Patrick Harman, a product of Midwest Martial Arts in Osceola, Indiana suffered a submission loss to “Cujo” Joe McCall. In Shawnee, Oklahoma, Intimidation-sponsored Erin Toughill stepped into the cage for the first time in nearly two years and dropped a unanimous decision for her first loss in over six years. The sponsorship of Toughill (11-3) is the start of a growing presence in the Southwest as the Intimidation name continues to build across the USA. Vaughan, Petz, Cruickshank and Toughill all featured Intimidation walkout tees and logos on their shorts with Harman sporting an Intimidation tee as well.

After a weekend of great sales and fantastic branding across the USA, the Intimidation brand will be in full force yet again this weekend with fighters in action in St. Paul, Minnesota and Canton, Ohio at two major regional MMA events.

Weekend Preview: Big sponsorships this weekend for Intimidation Clothing

As stated in our post about Intimidation’s busy month of MMA & grappling events in April, Intimidation Clothing will not be resting in the coming months. In addition to a very busy month of events, Intimidation has an impressive lineup of fighter sponsorships lined starting this weekend in both Ohio and Oklahoma.

Dan Bobish’s Ultimate Cage Battles returns to Parma, Ohio on Saturday with Stars & Stripes and Intimidation Clothing will be live at the event with several pro fighters sponsored. In addition, Intimidation-sponsored fighters will also be in action on April 9th in Indiana as well as Oklahoma.

Erin Toughill FCF 46 posterAt the UCB event in Parma Intimidation will have three fighters in action with Daron Cruickshank, Brett Ewing & Patrick Harman all scheduled for fights. Michigan’s Daron Cruickshank (6-2) is widely considered one of the top prospects in the Midwest and will face Cleveland fan favorite Tiawan Howard (8-6). Cruickshank, a product of the MASH Fight Team near Detroit, was previously sponsored by Intimidation at the September 2010 King of the Cage event in Detroit and will face Howard at 170 lbs.

Brett Ewing capped off a perfect amateur MMA career (10-0) and made a successful pro debut just a couple of weeks ago. Fighting as a featherweight, Ewing, a member of Vision MMA in Cincinnati, Ohio, was been sponsored by Intimidation Clothing twice during his amatuer career.

Patrick Harman (8-8) is a fighter who has faced many of the top heavyweights in the sport. Harman currently trains with UFC veteran Todd Brown at Midwest Martial Arts in Osceola, Indiana, and saw his five-fight winning streak snapped when he lost a decision to Joe Galer nearly a year ago.

Rounding out the Midwest USA presence for Intimidation on April 9th is Forrest “The Meat Cleaver” Petz. The most accomplished fighter in the group of Intimidation-sponsored fighters on this weekend, Petz has been working with Intimidation for nearly a year now. The 7-fight UFC vet scored a win in a January fight for the UCB promotion and will face UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator & TUF 6 veteran John Kolosci at HFC 7 in Valparaiso, Indiana. Interestingly enough, Kolosci (14-7) lost via submission to Intimidation Clothing-sponsored Kenny Robertson in August at Bellator 25. Petz will be seen wearing Intimidation’s premium quality board shorts and his own signature t-shirt.

Also fighting this weekend under the Intimidation banner is Erin Toughill, aka “Steel” from NBC’s remake of American Gladiators. Toughill (10-2) has widely been considered a Top 10 female fighter in the 145 lb weight class and could have a Strikeforce fight in the works if she wins at the Freestyle Cage Fighting 46 event in Shawnee, Oklahoma on Saturday night. The sponsorship of Toughill further strengthens Intimidation’s emerging presence in the Southwest after signing on Thunder MMA as a authorized dealer earlier this year.

In addition to the pro MMA sponsorships for April 9th, Intimidation will once again be a title sponsor at the NAAFS: Proving Ground event in Akron, Ohio. Intimidation has big plans throughout the month of April with sponsorships of fighters from Maine to Minnesota as the company continues to experience exponential growth.
