Weekend MMA Recap: Parrish & Whitaker impress as Intimidation scores another winning weekend in Indiana, Kentucky & Michigan

The first weekend of April was busy for Intimidation Clothing, as fighters and events were sponsored all over the country to start a month filled with action.

Multiple fighters were in action at the Midwest Fight Series event in Indianapolis, as Dustin Parrish and Bryant Whitaker both picked up wins on the card. Dustin Parrish MMAFor Parrish (1-0), it was a successful first foray into the pro ranks after a 9-1 amateur career that saw him as one of the most heralded amateurs in the Hoosier State. Parrish (pictured, right) took a split decision victory over Frank Sloan while Bryant Whitaker (4-2) took a second round submission victory over fellow Team Intimidation fighter Kyle Nickle (2-2) at the same MFS events. With the win Whitaker (pictured, left) has won 3 in a row after a 1-2 start to his professional MMA career. Also on the card, Intimidation sponsored fighter Cameron VanCamp (0-0-1) fought to a majority draw against Cody Groves (0-1-1) in his professional debut. In amateur action Chris Tanner improved his record with a first round submission victory and David Dever dropped a TKO loss to David Stephens.

The Intimidation Indiana/Kentucky crew had a busy weekend, first putting together a banner night at Hardrock MMA 64 in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday, and then appearing at the POP!CON comic con event in Evansville, Indiana on Saturday. Team Intimidation fighters were in no short supply at the POP!CON event, as Ruben Perez, Ryan Conaway, Markus Hall and Patrick Ruby all made appearances at the Intimidation booth to greet and interact with fans and sign autographs. The Intimidation Michigan crew also had a successful night at the Exiled MMA: Insurgent event in Cedar Springs, Michigan.

Bryant Whitaker MMAThe Hardrock MMA 64 event was bittersweet for Team Intimidation, because despite a successful night at the Intimidation booth, the planned professional debut of longtime Team Intimidation fighter Brandon Hurst was scratched at the last minute due to his opponent pulling out of the fight with an injury.

In Washington, sponsored fighter and Bellator MMA veteran Scott Thometz (6-3) dropped a hard fought battle, as he succumbed to a TKO against Jacob Boysen (6-1).

This weekend, Intimidation will invade Western New York once again on the back of cornerstone Team Intimidation fighter Kyle “Kyote” Rozewski. First up, Rozewski will be on hand to provide a seminar at Robert Koch’s International Black Belt Academy in Alden, New York with Team Intimidation in attendance followed by Intimidation’s sponsorship of the New York State Grappling Championship in Fredonia, NY.
