Intimidation continues long-time sponsorship of “Big” John Hawk at NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 16 in Canton, Ohio

Intimidation Clothing is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of veteran fighter “Big” John Hawk, as he prepares to face rising MMA star Curt Lemmon (4-0) in a heavyweight title bout at the upcoming NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 16 event on March 7th Canton, Ohio.

John Hawk MMAHawk (10-5) continues his run in his return to heavyweight, as his victory over William Penn in March 2014 was the first fight for the former NAAFS heavyweight champ in the division since 2010. He then followed up that win with a victory over Bobby Brents at NAAFS: Rock ‘N Rumble 8 last October. Hawk has become known as one of the most durable fighters in the sport, including racking up a 2-1 win under the Bellator MMA banner with an upset win over Marcus Vanttinen at Bellator 66 highlighting his time in the organization.

Hawk will look to become the NAAFS heavyweight champion for the second time, as he won the title with a victory over Joe McCall in 2010 before dropping to light heavyweight. The title was then won by and later vacated by Intimidation alum Stipe Miocic when he signed with the UFC in 2011.

Hawk is a fan favorite in Northeast Ohio and comes in looking for his fifth win in seven outings. Known for his willingness to fight anybody at any time, Hawk is an outspoken member of the Strong Style Fight Team in Northeast Ohio, which is an official Intimidation Clothing dealer.

John Hawk & Brian Rogers MMAHawk has not one but two signature t-shirts from Intimidation, including the original gray and an updated red signature shirt that was released in June. It was one of the most popular items at the Intimidation booth at the Fight Nite in the Flats 10 event in Cleveland last June, and Hawk wasn’t even competing on the card.

Intimidation Clothing now offers signature shirts for more than 20 different fighters, including Brian Rogers, Jessamyn Duke, Jason Dent, Donny Walker, Jessica Eye, Mark Cherico, Forrest Petz, Ken Shamrock, Wes Sims, and more.

Intimidation alums Isaiah “The Beast”  Chapman and Antonio Castillo Jr. were also expected to be in action at the March 7th event, fighting for the NAAFS bantamweight title. UFC veteran Branden Hinkle will also be in action on the same night, as he will be competing in a boxing event in West Virginia while another long-time Intimidation alum Dan Spohn will be fighting on Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

Intimidation alums find success in the cage during holiday season

December 9, 2014 by  
Filed under Fighter Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

Intimidation Clothing has long been a supporter of up-and-coming mixed martial artists, and many of the fighters who have donned the popular brand in the past have found major successes on varying levels, including in the UFC, Bellator, and World Series of Fighting. Dan Spohn UFCIntimidation has sponsored hundreds of fighters in the company’s five year history, and has produced signature shirts for more than a dozen different athletes.

Most recently, here are the Intimidation alums who have seen success in the sport:

Dan “Dragon” Spohn (9-4) – After starring as a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 19 and making his official UFC debut earlier this year, Spohn returned to his hometown of Columbus in November, where he moved his record to 3-0 fighting in Ohio’s capital with a first round submission over Michael Cockerham in less than a minute. Spohn, who hopes to make it back to the UFC in 2015 with another win or two, has been a member of Team Intimidation dating back to his fourth professional fight. Intimidation sponsored Spohn en route to his winning the NAAFS light heavyweight title, in his 9-second knockout win at Bellator 51, and his two recent fights for the UVC in Columbus. The Cambridge native is a black belt in traditional kachido akijitsu. Spohn now makes his home in Columbus and holds victories over UFC veteran Josh Hendricks, John Hawk and current NAAFS champion Josh Stansbury.

Josh “Sandman” Stansbury (6-2) – Stansbury is the reigning NAAFS light heavyweight champion and was also the amateur heavyweight champion for NAAFS in 2007. Most recently, he traveled to Colorado in November, where he won the light heavyweight title for Prize Fighting Championships with a first round submission win over Jeremy Osheim. Jessica Eye MMAStansbury was also a cast member on TUF 19, but he suffered an injury in his prelimary fight, which he happened to be dominating.

Jessica “Evil” Eye (11-2) – Eye is a current member of the fast-growing UFC women’s bantamweight division, but before she entered the Octagon she was Ohio’s most popular fighter. A longtime member of Team Intimidation during her early professional career, Eye became a fan favorite and is a pioneer for women’s MMA in the Buckeye State. Most recently, she picked up her first official UFC win with a TKO victory over Leslie Smith at UFC 180 in November. Intimidation released a signature shirt for Eye in 2012, and Eye is also the creator of the Eye Believe signature line of apparel, of which some stock remains through IntimidationClothing.com.

Hector “El Toro” Urbina (17-8-1) – Urbina is an Ohio native who now makes his home in Florida training with American Top Team. Urbina has been sponsored multiple times by Intimidation, and he is the former middleweight and reigning welterweight champion for the Intimidation sponsored NAAFS organization. He was also a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 19, and he made his official UFC debut with a win over Edgar Garcia last month at UFC 180 in Mexico.

Mike “The Marine” Richman (18-5) – A former Bellator tournament finalist, Richman has now become the No. 1 contender in the organization’s bantamweight division with back-to-back knockout wins in bouts on Spike TV. Most recently, he stopped UFC veteran Nam Phan in just 46 seconds at Bellator 131 in November. Stipe Miocic UFCIntimidation sponsored Richman both in bouts for Bellator and in bouts that took place in his home state prior to his signing with Bellator. His next bout will be in March, when he faces former Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas for a likely title shot.

 

Stipe Miocic (12-1) – Miocic (pictured, right) is one of the sport’s top heavyweights, and he’ll be fighting for a title shot when he takes on former champion Junior Dos Santos in the main event at UFC on FOX 13 on December 13. Intimidation sponsored Miocic through his early pro career, when he was dominant on the regional scene winning the NAAFS heavyweight title.

Dustin “Bam Bam” Parrish (2-0) – Parrish, who hails from Indiana, boasted an impressive 9-1 record as an amatuer and is one of the fastest-rising stars on the Midwest MMA scene. Now training at American Top Team in Indianapolis, Parrish got his start in MMA after going to a local martial arts school just to take a break from wrestling. He is now 2-0 as a pro following a first round submission win over veteran Ryan McIntosh at LFC 55 in Indianapolis in November.

Cody “No Love” Garbrandt (5-0) – An Ohio native who regularly brings some of the biggest crowds to fights in his home state, Garbrandt recently signed with the UFC after posting 5 knockouts through his first 5 pro fights. He’ll make his Octagon debut at UFC 182 on January 3, where he will face veteran Marcus Brimage. Intimidation sponsored Garbrandt throughout much of his amateur and early pro career, and the Pinnacle FC bantamweight champion has become one of the sport’s biggest prospects since moving to California to train at Team Alpha Male with the likes of former WEC champion Urijah Faber and current UFC champion T.J. Dillashaw.

Weekend MMA Recap: Intimidation excels again at Ohio & Michigan MMA events

Intimidation Clothing was busy as always this past weekend, with two events sponsored in two different states to close out a banner month of May.

MMA Promoter Matt Trukovich RFOIntimidation was on hand at RFO: Big Guns 13 in Mansfield, Ohio on Saturday night, selling gear at an official booth where promoter Matt Trukovich posed for a quick picture (right) on a busy night. The fight card produced as always, including a victory for All American J.D. Ramsey (3-0) in the night’s featured amateur bout. Ramsey, who is sponsored by Intimidation and trains with fellow Team Intimidation member and UFC veteran Branden Hinkle, kept his perfect record intact with a unanimous decision victory over the highly regarded Nick Stuff (6-2) in the amateur main event.

Intimidation was also on hand at the WXC 50 event near Detroit on Friday night, once again increasing the brand exposure in the state of Michigan. Fans packed inside the Southgate Civic Arena, many of them donning Intimidation gear and witnessing 15 amateur bouts on the night.

Intimidation alum Stipe Miocic was perhaps the biggest MMA star of the weekend, as the former NAAFS champion moved his UFC record to 6-1 as he stopped Fabio Maldonado via TKO in just 35 seconds in the main event at the TUF Brazil 3 Finale. The former Cleveland State wrestler and baseball player was sponsored by Intimidation in multiple fights prior to entering the UFC.

#LocalMMA Monday: NAAFS & Driven MMA

June 2, 2014 by  
Filed under Local / Regional MMA, News

The first installment of IntimidationMMA.com’s #LocalMMA Monday features perhaps the biggest name in all of Local MMA, as the co-branded NAAFS/Driven MMA organization kicks us off. Based out of Canton, Ohio, the North American Allied Fight Series was founded in 2005 as “Gladiator Fighting” with current CEO Greg Kalikas in conjunction with veteran kickboxer Duke Roufus. NAAFS in the FlatsSince then, the organization has promoted more than 125 live events in the Midwest and has become one of the most respected amateur leagues in the country.

Kalikas’ NAAFS developed into a powerhouse on the local scene, holding the majority of their events in Canton, Akron and Cleveland before eventually branching out from events in Northeast Ohio to hold events all over the state. Then the organization was one of the first promoters to hold an event in West Virginia when the state regulated MMA in 2012. Over its nearly decade as an organization, the NAAFS has come to be known as a leader in amateur MMA, women’s MMA, and producing top talent for the UFC, Bellator MMA and other national organizations.

Stipe Miocic UFCThe list of names that have competed inside the NAAFS cage reads like a who’s who of MMA, including current welterweight top contender Matt Brown, current UFC heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic, women’s MMA star Jessica Eye, UFC veterans Jason Dent, Forrest Petz, Ben Rothwell, Dave Herman, Phil Davis, Donny Walker and more along with current TUF 19 star Dan Spohn, former Bellator MMA Featherweight Champion Daniel Straus, Bellator knockout artists Brian Rogers and many more.

In addition to its top names, NAAFS has come to be known for featuring women’s MMA, spearheaded by the first woman of Ohio MMA, Jessica “Evil” Eye. Eye competed in the first women’s bout in NAAFS history, headlined the first all-female card, became the first female amateur NAAFS champion, and became the first female to headline a card featuring men for the organization as well. NAAFS has also featured other top female talent, including Aisling Daly, Carina Damm, Rebecca Heintzman, Jessica Zomcik, Tamikka Brents and more.

Donny Walker NAAFS ChampionOn top of all of this, the NAAFS is one of a limited number of Local MMA promotions to co-promote events with Bellator MMA having worked together  on Bellator 51 in Canton and Bellator 66 in Cleveland, Ohio and Bellator 71 in West Virginia.

While the pro fighters brought fans to NAAFS events, it has been the astounding amateur talent that has kept them there. The NAAFS National Amateur Series is a true proving ground for amateur fighters who want to make it to the next level, and many top names have claimed NAAFS amateur gold before turning pro. Those names include Isaiah Chapman, George Comer, Nick Duell, Jessica Eye, Jerrell Hodge, and many more.

“It is hard to deny the resume that the NAAFS has built in the past decade,” stated Luke Jernigan, President & CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “Now with Driven MMA they put on the cards that everyone else in the Midwest looks at and wishes they could duplicate. Few organizations have done more to further Local MMA in the USA, especially East of the Mississippi, as the NAAFS.”

The organization promotes many must-see events, including the annual “Fight Nite in the Flats” and “Rock N Rumble” summer events at Jacobs Pavilion in Downtown Cleveland, as well as their annual “Night of Champions” to award amateur titles.

John Hawk & StrongStyle wearing Local MMAIn 2014, the NAAFS became an all amateur series, with the berth of a new wing of the organization, Driven MMA. Driven MMA debuted in March 2014, and Driven MMA One was the biggest MMA card to hit Ohio in years. The event featured an all-pro lineup that showcased top fighters, including Bellator MMA veteran Dan Hornbuckle, UFC veteran Rodney Wallace, former NAAFS champion Frank Caraballo, and rising local stars like Chapman, Comer, Kyle Rozewski and more.

Now, the two wings will team up for the first time, as Driven MMA presents NAAFS: Fight Nite in the Flats 10 this weekend in Cleveland. The card features both professional and amateur talent, and it is headlined by Frank Caraballo taking on UFC veteran Tommy Hayden in a featherweight match-up. Also included on the card are several familiar names for Ohio MMA fans including Chapman, Rozewski, Hodge, RJ Buck, Dave Lastafka and more.

Maxim Grishin spars with Stip MiocicThe 29-year-old has won 4 in a row and 7 of his last 8, and appears to be on the verge of signing with a top national organization if he can pull off a win over Wallace.
