One of the most high profile members of Team Intimidation is now a part of the world’s biggest organization. Top-ranked female fighter Jessica “Evil” Eye (10-1) has signed a multi-fight deal with UFC, according to multiple reports and is expected to debut sometime this fall against an opponent to be named.

Most recently, she headlined NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats IX in June, when she defeated veteran Carina Damm in one of the best fights so far this summer.

Eye is a member of the Strong Style Fight Team, which is an official Intimidation dealer and also features Intimidation sponsored fighters Brian Rogers, Forrest Petz, John Hawk, Nick Duell, and more. Along with Rogers, the two recently spoke to students at Pymatuning Valley Middle School about life choices, making good decisions, bullying, self image and more.

Weekend Recap: Record weekend sees Intimidation sponsored pro fighters score big wins in Ohio, Indiana & Michigan

Intimidation Clothing has long been a staple on the Midwest MMA scene, and Saturday night that was evident once again. While the brand served as a main sponsor of both the NAAFS and Colosseum Combat MMA pro/am events in Ohio and Indiana, as well as an event in South Carolina, the brand sponsored fighters at each event as well as in Michigan. Jessica Eye & Eye Believe MerchandiseIntimidation continues to prove to be the biggest supporter of local MMA in the region as a benchmark was set at Saturday’s NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats IX event in Cleveland. At the event held at the Jacobs Pavilion in The Flats, all six winners in professional bouts were sponsored by the Intimidation brand. Those winners included #1 ranked female flyweight Jessica Eye (pictured, left), new NAAFS interim lightweight champion Torrance Taylor, UFC veteran Forrest Petz, rising lightweight star George Comer and more. Intimidation also had a record breaking night at its official booth which featured over 50 different styles of Intimidation products as well as gear from Jessica Eye’s popular EYE Believe brand along with Soulless Clothing, Headlock Gear and Victory Fight Gear.

Top ranked flyweight Jessica Eye returned to action for the first time since upsetting former Bellator women’s champion Zoila Gurgel in December, and the Cleveland native picked up her seventh straight win with a clear cut unanimous decision over veteran and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Carina Damm. Also sponsored by Intimidation partner Cast Iron Supplements, Eye is one of the most popular fighters in Ohio and continues to be one of the faces of Intimidation Clothing. Meanwhile, Eye’s longtime teammate at StrongStyle Martial Arts, Forrest “The Meat Cleaver” Petz, announced his retirement from MMA after nearly 40 professional fights and two stints in the UFC. Forrest Petz vs Chris CurtisFans were treated to the last fight from Ohio legend as the veteran and fan favorite took home a gritty decision win over top prospect Chris Curtis in a 170-pound affair that was clearly the fight of the night.  Petz showed off his impressive boxing skills to take home a unanimous decision in his final appearance in the cage.

Torrance Taylor picked up his fifth straight victory and third TKO in less than a year, as he claimed the organization’s interim lightweight title with a fourth round TKO victory over Terry Blackwell. Taylor continues to be one of the rising stars on the Ohio MMA scene and mentioned after the fight his desire to make it to a larger organization in the near future. Now training extensively with the Strong Style Fight Team in Cleveland, Taylor seems poised to indeed take that step as he seemingly has really turned a corner in his career.

Lightweight George Comer continues to inch toward a potential NAAFS title shot, as the GriffonRawl product earned his third straight victory with a unanimous decision over Brian Camozzi in one of the evening’s featured pro bouts. NAAFS in the FlatsBoth fighters came into the fight with lots of hype, with Camozzi being the younger brother of the UFC’s Chris Camozzi and Comer training at GriffonRawl with UFC veteran Jason Dent and Donny Walker. But it was Comer’s wrestling that won the fight, as he imposed his will and stayed in control for the entire 15 minutes to take home a sweep decision win.

Other pro fighters sponsored by Intimidation on the card were Hector Urbina and Maxim Grishin as well as Terry Blackwell, Nick Duell and Brian Camozzi. Amateurs RJ Buck, Jerrell Hodge and Sammy Callari were also sponsored by the brand.

Along with sponsoring the NAAFS event, Intimidation also served as a sponsor for Colosseum Combat XXV in Kokomo, Indiana. One of the best-run organizations in the Midwest, Intimidation had another successful night as UFC and Bellator veteran Ryan Thomas picked up a win in the main event to earn the organization’s welterweight title while sponsored by Intimidation. Brett Sbardella MMAThomas, sponsored by Intimidation for the first time, picked up his 4th straight win to improve to 16-7 in his 7-year pro MMA career. Meanwhile, at Big John’s MMA in Northern Michigan Brett Sbardella (pictured, right) picked up a victory via arm bar just 37 seconds into his bout to improve his pro record to 5-2.

The #1 ranked female mixed martial artist in the world at 125 pounds, Jessica “Evil” Eye is not stranger to Ohio MMA fans, but her rise to national prominence has come after a thrilling submission win over Zoila Gurgel in December 2012. The quick submission of the former Bellator champion came in under a minute of cage time and put to rest many of the harsh words thrown her way by the outspoken Gurgel. A product of Strong Style Martial Arts in Independence, Ohio, Eye is 3-0 fighting for Bellator MMA and will be in action again in April in Atlantic City as she looks to continue her 6-fight win streak.

luke-zachrich_300Brian “The Professional Predator” Rogers, formerly known as “The Predator” for his post fight celebration, added the word “professional” to his nickname thanks to his former career as a special education teacher and his recent abundance of red carpet public appearances.

Now 10-5 as a pro, The Strong Style Martial Arts product remains one of the most exciting middleweights in the sport today.

Known best for his time on The Ultimate Fighter Season 7, Luke Zachrich is a businessman, coach and professional MMA fighter. The owner of the Ronin Training Center in Columbus, Ohio, Zachrich has built an incredibly successful pro and amateur fight team since the gym opened in 2011as the gym has featured many big names to come through the door including UFC Welterweight Matt Brown and former NFL linebacker and Ohio State football star Andy Katzenmoyer. Before the UVC 20 win over Nick Kraus, Zachrich was last seen inside the cage at Bellator 16 in the quarterfinals of the Bellator Season 2 Middleweight Tournament.

Isaiah Chapman MMAThe owner of one of the most fitting nicknames in the sport, Isaiah “The Beast” Chapman is truly a beast at 135lbs. Training out of Rock Hard MMA and Unique Fitness in Akron, an official Intimidation dealer, Chapman is already a black belt in Judo, an accomplished boxer and was a decorated amateur wrestler. In addition to being on the winning end of the 2012 Ohio MMA Fight of the Year by OHMMA.com, Chapman was named the Intimidation Clothing Athlete of the Month for February 2013. He is slated to be back in action on March 30th in Canton for the NAAFS as he looks to improve on his 4-0 pro record.

Dan “Dragon” Spohn is just a few days removed from adding another win to his record as the 4-time Bellator veteran made his debut for the Columbus-based Ultimate Victory Challenge (UVC) promotion. Spohn has been sponsored by Intimidation in each of his fights for the past two years and along with Rogers was one of the sponsored fighters at the Intimidation booth at the Arnold Sports Festival a year ago. Now 7-3 as a pro, the former NAAFS Light Heavyweight Champion returned to teaching at Buckeye MMA and is expected to return to action before the summer as he looks to stay busy and once again get a shot at the big stage.
