Weekend Recap: Parks & Tweedy highlight weekend of growth in Indianapolis & Pittsburgh markets

Intimidation Clothing continues to grow in regions outside of its home base in Ohio, and this past weekend was proof of the growing reach of the popular clothing brand. Intimidation was live at events in Indianapolis and suburban Pittsburgh and posted yet another stellar weekend.

Ronin TC - Columbus MMAAs part of its national sponsorship of Rocktagon events, Intimidation was live at Rocktagon 25, the organization’s debut in Indiana. Along with a massive night at the Intimidation booth, two sponsored pro fighters picked up quick first round victories. Lightweight Austin Tweedy moved his record to 2-0 with a first round verbal submission victory over Douglas Stapleton, while lightweight Reggie Parks (pictured) also moved to 2-0 with his second straight first round knockout victory. Parks continues his MMA comeback after taking the entire 2012 year off and making the move to Columbus, Ohio to train at Ronin Training Center. Also, amateur James Mogollon moved to 5-0 and claimed the Rocktagon Indiana lightweight title with a guillotine choke submission victory in the first round.

Intimidation also sponsored two fighters at the all-female Invicta Fighting Championships 5 event in Kansas City, but both Kaitlin Young and Jessamyn Duke unfortunately came up short and were unable to pull off victories on the night, but both repped the brand well as always.

All in all, it was another successful weekend for Intimidation with continued growth in both the Indiana and Pittsburgh markets that have seen booming increases in MMA over the past year. This weekend, Intimidation will be live at IT Fight Series 19 in Findlay, Ohio and will also serve as a sponsor for the event.
