Rogers, Butcher & Horne cap 3-0 night for Intimidation Clothing at Bellator 78 in Dayton, Ohio

The Intimidation brand had yet another great night on Friday, October 26th in Dayton, Ohio at Bellator 78. Brian Rogers MMA - BellatorThe company featured three sponsored fighters in action with two on the live Spike.com prelims along with Brian “The Predator” Rogers on the MTV2 broadcast. The three professional fighters did not disappoint with all three winning in dominant fashion to cap off a 3-0 night for the Intimidation brand with two more impressive finishes inside the Bellator cage.

On the preliminary card Intimidation once again worked with middleweights Jason Butcher  and Billy “Mojo” Horne  as the two entered the event facing opponents with a combined 15-0 record. Neither fighter made their family, fans or sponsors sweat as both scored 1st round submission victories improving Mojo’s record to 11-4 with Butcher remaining undefeated at 5-0. For Mojo, the end came after landing solid ground and pound before locking in the rear naked choke at 3:30 in the 1st round. Meanwhile, Jason Butcher fended off the aggression of his opponent to control Asher’s head and eventually got the tap due to a 1st round guillotine choke just 93 seconds into the fight.

Jason Butcher MMA - BellatorFinally, fighting on the MTV2 televised portion of the Bellator 78 card Brian “The Predator” Rogers nearly guaranteed himself a spot in Bellator’s next middleweight tournament, expected to take place this January on Spike TV. Fighting before family, friends and fellow Intimidation-sponsored teammate Jessica “Evil” Eye, Rogers (10-4, 3-2 Bellator) scored his most technical win of his pro career with a dominating unanimous decision win. When all was said and done Rogers won all three rounds in a 30-27 on all three judges’ scorecards and appeared to be very pleased with his performance. He spoke with Jimmy Smith in the cage after the fight and proclaimed that he is the most exciting middleweight on Bellator’s roster while holding up his Ice Block Cooler.

Meanwhile, two previously sponsored fighters also score wins to keep the night perfect for those related to the Intimidation brand. On the MTV2 televised portion of the card Season 6 Featherweight Tournament Champion Daniel Straus locked in a rear naked choke late in the 2nd round to improve to 21-4 (7-1 Bellator). Strauss will return to Bellator in 2013 to fight the winner of the Bellator Featherweight title fight between Pat Curran and Patricio Freire. Billy "Mojo" Horne MMA - BellatorOn the Spike.com broadcast Rob Hanna improved to 3-0 as a pro scoring a split decision win in his first fight since Intimidation sponsored him at UVC 20 in Columbus in August 2012.

Following a lengthy layoff, Luke Zachrich (pictured) earned a hard-fought victory by unanimous decision over Nick Kraus at UVC 20.

Also at UVC 20 in Columbus, Rob Hanna won by submission due to strikes over Nate Clark. Hanna made a successful transition to the professional ranks after a stand-out career as an amateur.

At the NAAFS’ first show in Eastlake, Ohio, fan-favorite Terry Blackwell earned a split decision victory over a very game opponent in Brandon Suber. With the win, Blackwell moves up to 3-1 as a professional and 8-1 overall in his MMA career.

Intimidation Clothing also sponsored Johnny Buck in his XFC 19 fight, which ended in dramatic fashion with a KO victory for Buck.

The fight aired live on AXS TV and got some recognition on the popular MMA website Middle Easy.

Intimidation Clothing was also proud to sponsor Evolve MMA’s Doug Kulbis, Buckeye MMA’s Jon Washington and Indiana-based middleweight Nick Kraus, who all came up short in their bouts on the UVC 20 card.
