Intimidation Weekend Recap: Busy weekend for Intimidation brand at MMA events in Ohio & Michigan

Intimidation Clothing continues to have a busy schedule with events nearly every weekend across the Midwest and entire United States, and this past weekend was no different. Intimidation crews were in attendance at three different events in two states, as the brand continues to grow and receive more recognition nationwide as one of the biggest supporters of local MMA.

majors-radtkin_450With two events during a busy weekend in Ohio, the Intimidation crews were at both the Caged Madness 24 event in Uhrichsville and also at Purgatory Fight Series 12 in Toledo. As a charity “fight against leukemia” event benefiting 6-year-old Maddux Maple, Caged Madness 24 featured the retirement fight of UFC veteran Josh Hendricks as well as an amazing back and forth battle between lightweights Robert White II and Andrew Law in the co-main event. Purgatory Fight Series continues to be one of the fastest growing organizations in Ohio, and the 12th event was one of the biggest in the history of the organization. One of Intimidation’s newest dealers, Malice MMA in Paulding, Ohio, represented the brand at the Purgatory event (pictured) and is scheduled to be very busy in Northwest Ohio and Northeast Indiana in the coming weeks. Intimidation’s Michigan crew was also in attendance at the Empire Cage Combat event in Detroit, Michigan, as the brand continues to be even stronger in The Great Lakes State.

Sponsored fighters had a rough weekend as a whole, but two picked up wins as Donald Williams scored a dominant unanimous decision in Minnesota and Kentucky’s own Gina Begley scored a submission win at RFA 7 in Denver, Colorado to take the amateur title.

This weekend Intimidation has no rest for the wicked, as we celebrate Easter weekend by sponsoring a whopping six events in six different states, spanning from Ohio to South Dakota. Intimidation will be live at NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 13 (Canton, OH), Colosseum Combat XXIV (Kokomo, IN), Michigan Xtreme Combat (Cedar Springs, MI), XFO 47 (Chicago, IL), Hardrock MMA (Louisville, KY), and Fury Ultimate Cage Fighting (Brookins, SD). Intimidation crews will be in attendance at all events except for the FUCF event in South Dakota and XFO 47 in Chicago.

Multiple fighters will be sponsored this weekend as well, including fighters in nearly every pro bout at Caged Vengeance 13, Bobby Emmons at Colosseum Combat XXIV, Andre Feliciano at XFO 47 and more.
