Intimidation Clothing Athlete of the Month – Dan “Dragon” Spohn

August 5, 2013 by  
Filed under Athlete of the Month, News, Sponsorships

Life as a fighter is full of highs and lows, and one mixed martial artist who has experienced both in his career is light heavyweight Dan “Dragon” Spohn. A dedicated father and family man, the Columbus native has competed as a martial artist for nearly his entire life; Spohn is a black belt in Kachido Akijitsu and is known for his creative striking style and well-rounded mixed martial arts game. A longtime member of Team Intimidation, Spohn is the Intimidation Clothing Athlete of the Month for August 2013.

Dan Spohn MMASpohn was on top of the world in September 2011, as he had just earned the second fastest knockout in Bellator history with 9-second KO of Dane Bonnigson in his debut at Bellator 51, moving his record to 6-0. Then the NAAFS champion after a victory over John Hawk earlier in the year, Spohn signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator with the intent to eventually earn a place in one of the organization’s tournaments for a chance to fight his way to #1 contender status.

And that’s when the tough times started. Spohn lost his next bout in Bellator just over a month later, as he fell to Kelvin Tiller via split decision at Bellator 56. Then Spohn got an opportunity to fight for Bellator once again in Ohio, as he welcomed Attila Vegh to the U.S. for the first time. The bout was back-and-forth through three rounds between the two counter punchers, but once again Spohn was on the wrong side of a split decision.

After the loss, Spohn received one more opportunity in Bellator, as he signed on to defend his NAAFS light heavyweight title against Josh Stansbury at Bellator 71 in West Virginia. And for the first time in his career, Spohn was finished as he lost via submission to Stansbury in the very first round. While Spohn was left to ponder his fighting future, Vegh began his run in the Bellator Light Heavyweight Tournament at that same event and proceeded to win Bellator’s 205lb belt.

Dan Spohn MMABut despite the three-fight losing streak, Spohn remained upbeat and never got down on himself as a fighter. He made changes in his training and went back to controlling his own fight camps, and earlier this year he made his debut for the Columbus-based UVC organization with a submission victory over Robert Morrow in the main event at UVC 22. Suddenly Spohn was on his way back up the mountain, and his fighting career was given a new light with an organization that was willing to feature him as a main event star.

Spohn returned to the UVC in May, and once again earned a submission victory, this time stopping Aaron Mays with an arm bar in the first round. Now with two straight wins and a 8-3 pro record against some very tough competition, Dan Spohn is now ready for his next big opportunity. With an eye on the August 24th NAAFS Light Heavyweight title fight between John Hawk and Josh Stansbury, and the recent fights from the UVC closer to home, he should have several nice opportunities to extend his winning streak and gain national prominence.

“Dan is truly one of the good guys in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts,” stated Luke Jernigan, President & CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “Few carry themselves with so much class and it is an honor for our brand to work with Dan and his wonderful family. I am truly pleased to have Dan Spohn as our August Athlete of the Month.”
