Intimidation Clothing is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of veteran fighter “Big” John Hawk, as he prepares to face rising MMA star Curt Lemmon (4-0) in a heavyweight title bout at the upcoming NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 16 event on March 7th Canton, Ohio.

John Hawk MMAHawk (10-5) continues his run in his return to heavyweight, as his victory over William Penn in March 2014 was the first fight for the former NAAFS heavyweight champ in the division since 2010. He then followed up that win with a victory over Bobby Brents at NAAFS: Rock ‘N Rumble 8 last October. Hawk has become known as one of the most durable fighters in the sport, including racking up a 2-1 win under the Bellator MMA banner with an upset win over Marcus Vanttinen at Bellator 66 highlighting his time in the organization.

Hawk will look to become the NAAFS heavyweight champion for the second time, as he won the title with a victory over Joe McCall in 2010 before dropping to light heavyweight. The title was then won by and later vacated by Intimidation alum Stipe Miocic when he signed with the UFC in 2011.

It was one of the most popular items at the Intimidation booth at the Fight Nite in the Flats 10 event in Cleveland last June, and Hawk wasn’t even competing on the card.
