Intimidation continues strong push into Michigan’s Local MMA market thanks to Shad Thomsen’s resiliency

For years now the Intimidation Clothing name has been known as one of the biggest supporters of Local MMA across the country, but especially in the Midwest and surrounding states. The Ohio-based company regularly attends MMA events in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York and sponsors events across the nation and now in Canada and England. But while the company continues to grow, it is the people behind the scenes that deserve much of the credit.

Intimidation's Shad Thomsen with UFC Lightweight Daron CruickshankA former MMA fighter himself, Shad Thomsen is better known on Facebook as “Michigan Intimidation Distributor.” A huge MMA fan and regular at the weight bench, Thomsen is a worker – he grew up on a small farm in Sidney, Michigan and has had to work for everything he has achieved in life. What makes this even more impressive is his constant battle with dyslexia. “Shad has trouble getting his point across at times, both in speaking and online,” stated Luke Jernigan, President and CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “But what impresses me about Shad is his consistency, his resiliency and his drive. Add in a huge heart and a genuine desire to do things the right way and it shows that his character is undeniable. This is exactly why I love having him as a member of Team Intimidation.”

Thomsen is a former high school wrestler and track athlete who has trained for the Mixed Martial Arts world at American Muscle and Mid Michigan MMA over the years. Also a fan of weight lifting, Thomsen’s favorite quote is simply “It still your set” – something he got from CT Fletcher. After a 3-5 fighting career Thomsen was recruited into the business by Phil “The Voice” Davey, the legendary Michigan ring and cage announcer. Davey knew of Thomsen’s drive and love of the fighting game and saw an opportunity to help him do more inside the MMA industry.

Over the past year Thomsen has taken his booth of Intimidation Clothing merchandise across the state of Michigan to MMA events such as Mad Men Promotions, Capital City Fight Championships, Exiled MMA, Prison City Fight League, Empire Cage Combat and more. In addition, with Intimidation’s new deal in place with the newly-formed Lifetime MMA organization in Grand Rapids, MI, Thomsen will again be shaking hands with the fans and making deals on top-quality clothing from a brand that customers can trust.

Pictured to the right with Intimidation alum and current UFC Lightweight Daron Cruickshank, also a Michigan native, Thomsen has trained alongside the likes of Glen Baily, and the professional MMA brother and sister duo of Victor and Alanna Jones. Says Thomsen, “Victor is my little brother – I owe him for helping me. He is always there for and me.”
