Weekend Recap: Sponsored pros go 5-0 at UVC 23 as Intimidation sponsors events in Georgia, Indiana & Ohio

Unbeaten weekends for Intimidation sponsored fighters are not unprecedented in and of themselves, but having one event where all five pros sponsored by the brand pick up wins is pretty rare. But that’s exactly what happened at UVC 23: Invasion, which went down in front of a sold out crowd at the Aladdin Shrine Center in Columbus, Ohio on Friday night. In addition to the brand’s sponsorship of the UVC event, the fast-growing brand also sponsored Saturday’s American Grappling Challenge as well as Conflict MMA in Savannah, Georgia, and Chris Lytle’s Midwest Fight Series event in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Dan Spohn MMAUVC middleweight champion Luke Zachrich (12-2) returned to the UVC cage for the second time, looking to build on his August win over Nick Kraus at UVC 20. Zachrich completely dominated Marcus Finch (7-7) in a one sided fight, proving that he outclassed the Cincinnati native in every aspect of MMA. Zachrich showed in the first round that his grappling was superior, then to prove that he is well-rounded, he spent the entire second round boxing with Finch. The third frame saw Zachrich mix up his attacks, with boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and jiu-jitsu all mixed in one. After the bout, an emotional Zachrich brought his wife and infant baby girl into the cage and expressed how hard it was to be away from them in preparation for training for this fight. He said that he wasn’t retiring for sure, but we may not see him back in the cage for a little while.

In the co-main event, longtime Intimidation sponsored fighter Dan “Dragon” Spohn (8-3) picked up his second win in a row in the UVC cage, as he submitted Aaron Mays with a slick belly down armbar in the first round. Spohn was victim to a takedown early in the bout, but the fighter formerly known as a pure striker showed off his submission game for the second fight in a row to pick up the win, and the submission of the night.

Lightweight Joe Heiland (9-2-1) made his UVC debut, as the Cleveland native picked up his third straight win with a split decision over Augusta Tindall in the fight of the night. Heiland appeared to be in trouble in the second frame after a flurry from Tindall, but he remained tough and took the fight to the ground where he had a clear advantage. After the bout, Heiland said that he had a broken jaw and that his mouth filled with blood in the second round, but he was still happy to pick up the win. He texted Intimidation CEO Luke Jernigan that “a true warrior pushes through” the pain which he proved inside the cage while getting the win.

Joe Heiland MMATop bantamweight prospect Cornelius Godfrey (8-1) was sponsored by Intimidation for the first time, and he picked up a workmanlike victory over Corey Simmons (4-4) in his UVC debut. Now at Ronin Training Center in Columbus, Godfrey figures to be a force to be reckoned with on the Central Ohio MMA scene in the near future; if he isn’t contact by the UFC or Bellator first.

And finally, Matt “Angerfist” Anderson (1-1) picked up his first win as a pro, and in his first bout sponsored by Intimidation. The always entertaining fighter put on an exciting bout against Jeramy Karshner, eventually picking up the win via armbar in the second round. There is no doubt that “Angerfist” will be wearing the Intimidation brand well into the future as the combination of his fighting skills and personality are a fantastic fit for the combat sports industry’s fastest-growing brand.
