Intimidation Clothing prides itself on seeking out the top up-and-coming talent in the mixed martial arts industry and beyond, and it would stand to reason that many Team Intimidation alums would go on to see successes at the top level of the sport, the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Stipe Miocic UFCWhile Intimidation has sponsored many UFC veterans – including Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia, recently retired Forrest Petz, “Ultimate Fighter 9” veteran Jason Dent, eccentric heavyweight Wes Sims, top lightweight Charlie Brenneman, and tough bantamweight Donny Walker – many fighters currently inside the Octagon have also donned the brand over the past few years:

Stipe Miocic

The former collegiate baseball player and wrestler is a member of the Strong Style Fight Team – which is an official Intimidation dealer – alongside other Team Intimidation members Brian Rogers, John Hawk, Joe Heiland and more. Jessica Eye & Eye Believe MerchandiseHe most recently defeated Gabriel Gonzaga in January at UFC on FOX 11 and moved his UFC record to 5-1.

Jessica “Evil” Eye
When Bellator MMA dissolved its women’s division earlier this year, the Strong Style product became the hottest free agent in MMA. Just days later, she signed on to be a part of the UFC’s fast-growing women’s bantamweight division. The Ohio native put her 7-fight winning streak on the line when she made her organizational debut against former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 on October 19th where Eye earned a hard-fought split decision win (which was later overturned to a no contest). She will be back in the cage at UFC 170 when she faces Alexis Davis. Intimidation’s Jessica Eye signature shirt is one of the company’s most popular fighter shirts and Intimidation is also the former online outlet of the Eye Believe line of clothing & merchandise.

“Relentless” Roger Bowling
One of the best knockout artists in MMA, the Cincinnati product made his UFC debut earlier this year on the heels of having two knockout wins over the span of three fights. Roger Bowling & Brian Rogers @ Strikeforce in ColumbusNow at lightweight, Bowling (pictured on left with Brian Rogers) continues to be one of the more underrated fighters in the UFC. Bowling went 4-3 in his seven Strikeforce fights and was sponsored before his Strikeforce signing and multiple times inside the Strikeforce cage by Intimidation, who also makes the Roger Bowling signature tee.

Daron “The Detroit Superstar” Cruickshank
This well-rounded fighter has a background in both karate and wrestling, and he made his way into the UFC after starring on The Ultimate Fighter 15. He has put together an impressive 4-2 record inside the Octagon, including wins over tough veteran Yves Edwards and Mike Rio in his last outing at UFC on FOX 11. The Michigan native is currently climing the UFC’s steep lightweight ladder. UFC lightweight Daron Cruickshank with Intimidation CEO Luke JerniganIntimidation and Cruickshank worked together for nearly two years over a span of five fights before signing with the UFC as he went 5-0 while sponsored by the Intimidation brand.

Sara McMann
Sara McMann, the silver medal winner in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, is also a 3-time medalist at the FILA World Championships, taking home silver in 2003 and bronze in both 2005 and 2007. After a career in wrestling at 138 pounds, McMann has made a name for herself in Mixed Martial Arts at 135 lbs and is 7-0 after defeating Shiela Gaff at UFC 159. McMann will get a title shot next and face Ronda Rousey at UFC 170 in February 2014.

Anthony “The Recipe” Lapsley
The newest member of the UFC’s roster from this list, Lapsley signed in mid-October to fight at UFC 167. A native of Indiana, Lapsley brought a 4-fight winning streak into his UFC debut, including three submissions. Intimidation has sponsored Lapsley in multiple bouts, including his recent victory over Gerald Meerschaert at Rocktagon 23 in Cleveland in 2013. The veteran fighter has earned 15 career submission victories, and he has won 8 of his last 10. Lapsley (22-6) made his UFC debut at UFC 167 in Las Vegas last November.
