Intimidation Clothing is pleased to announce the newest member of # Team Intimidation, as female fighting pioneer Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi will now be sponsored by the fast-growing clothing brand.

Roxanne Modafferi MMAA lifelong martial artist, Modafferi began training in karate when she was a teenager, and gained her brown belt in judo before graduating high school. During her college years at the University of Massachusetts, she trained at some of New England’s most notable gyms, including the Sityodtong Muay Thai Academy run by Mark DellaGrotte.

Modafferi began her mixed martial arts career while studying abroad in Tokyo, and she compiled a 5-0 record in just over a year competing for the legendary all-female Smackgirl promotion in Japan and the now Intimidation sponsored HOOKnSHOOT in Indiana. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Japanese Language and Literature, she landed a job teaching English and Japan and returned to the Land of the Rising Sun.

In 2006 she became one of the most recognizable fighters in women’s MMA, competing against the likes of Tara LaRosa, Shayna Baszler, and Marloes Coenen in her Strikeforce debut in 2009. In 2010 she had a rematch against LaRosa at the Moosin: God of Martial Arts event, and she won by decision in what was perhaps the biggest fight in WMMA history to that point. She then fought Sarah Kaufmann for the Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship in July 2010.

In August 2013, it was announced that she would compete on The Ultimate Fighter 18, once again making history as a member of the first cast of the show to feature women. After winning her preliminary fight to make it into the house, Modafferi became one of the more entertaining members of the cast, known for her quirky and happy-go-lucky attitude. She made her official UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale, where she dropped a decision to Raquel Pennington.

Roxanne Modafferi MMAMost recently, she signed a deal with the all-female Invicta Fighting Championships and is expected to debut for the organization soon. She now lives in Las Vegas and trains at Syndicate MMA under head coach John Wood and assistant coaches (UFC welterweight) Mike Pyle and (UFC vet & WSOF featherweight) John Gunderson.

Intimidation has long been a supporter of female fighters, including sponsoring multiple top fighters like current UFC stars Jessica “Evil” Eye & Sara McMann, recent star on The Ultimate Fighter 18 Jessamyn “The Gun” Duke, top prospect Jessica Zomcik and many more. In addition, Intimidation also released an official “I ♥ #WMMA” tee in 2013 in an effort to show the company’s support for female fighters across the globe.

“The signing of Roxanne Modafferi is an example of the direction of where Intimidation is heading as a brand,” stated Luke Jernigan, President & CEO of Intimidation Clothing, LLC. “I had no intention of adding to our roster before hearing from Roxanne, but after she was referred to us by one of Intimidation’s great alumni, my conversation with Roxanne solidified all I had heard about her and seen on The Ultimate Fighter. Roxanne’s character and attitude, and her humble approach asking to be considered for sponsorship, and her understanding of the responsibilities that a sponsored athlete must embrace made this deal a no-brainer.”

Intimidation alums continue to see success inside the UFC’s octagon

Filed under Fighter Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

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
Currently one of the UFC’s hottest heavyweight prospects, Miocic was sponsored by Intimidation during his NAAFS Heavyweight Championship title run in 2011 as he began his pro career at 6-0 before signing with the UFC. 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.

Filed under Fighter Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

Intimidation Clothing is proud to announce its sponsorship of UFC veteran Sean Salmon as he travels to Nashville, Tennessee this weekend to compete in the first round of the $10,000 light heavyweight tournament for Tennessee-based promotion Undisputed Combat Championships. Sean Salmon MMASalmon is expected to take on Florida’s Jesus Riveria (10-4) in the first round of the tournament that will culminate in January. The tournament also features undefeated pro Carlton Little (2-0) vs. Matt Brown (0-0), Kevin Brooks (13-10) vs. Teddy Holder (5-1), and Ryan Walls (0-0) vs. Ty Troutman (0-0).

Sean Salmon, who has fought for the UFC and Strikeforce as well as the NAAFS, XFO, Ring of Combat and several other top-level regional MMA promotions, holds a 18-19 pro record as he looks to get back to his winning ways opposite Riveria. Over his seven year pro career Salmon has faced many of the top fighters in and around his weight class including Rashad Evans, Alan Belcher, Alexander Shlemenko, Jorge Santiago, Tom DeBlass, Lucio Linhares, Travis Wiuff, David Heath, Jason Freeman and more. After a 9-1 start to his pro MMA career Salmon got the call to fight in the UFC where he had the unenviable task of facing both Rashad Evans and Alan Belcher in his two fights. Since then the Columbus, Ohio based fighter has continued to fight a variety of big names at regional MMA events and has a renewed energy as he looks to start a winning streak this weekend wearing Intimidation’s premium quality EliteFighter MMA fight shorts.

Intimidation sponsored fighters provide spectacular, award-winning finishes on national stage for Bellator

September 18, 2012 by  
Filed under Fighter Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

The Intimidation brand is synonymous with fantastic finishes, especially for the top fighters inside the Bellator organization. Many fighters bearing the Intimidation logo have provided exciting knockouts and submissions for Bellator, including Brian Rogers, Season 6 Welterweight Champion Karl Amoussou, top-ranked female fighter Jessica Eye and former Olympian Alexis Vila to name a few.

Brian Rogers MMABrian Rogers came on board with Intimidation in 2011, and “The Predator” has produced three highlight reel knockouts in that span. At “Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Hendo” Rogers broke onto the national scene with a TKO over Ian Rammel, and he followed up that performance with a head kick in the first round of Bellator’s Season 5 Middleweight Tournament that earned him a victory over Victor O’Donnell. Upon returning in the Season 6 tournament, Rogers (pictured, left) provided a Knockout of the Year candidate with his flying knee finish over Vitor Vianna at Bellator 61, which has since been named the best knockout in Bellator history. That same knockout was named as one of the finalists for Knockout of the Year at the 2012 World MMA Awards.

Karl Amoussou has taken a different path to Bellator success, as the Frenchman submitted two of three foes en route to becoming the Bellator Season 6 Welterweight Tournament champion. Karl Amoussou - Bellator MMAHe tapped Chris Lozano with a rear naked choke in the quarterfinals, and he then earned a title shot against Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren with a heel hook finish over Bryan Baker that is a Submission of the Year candidate. Like Rogers above, Amoussou is one of Intimidation’s core of fighters who are supported in their fights and training throughout the year.

Four of the five highlight reel knockouts at Bellator 51 came from Intimidation sponsored fighters. Joey Holt blasted Clint Musser with a flying knee in the first round (pictured, right), and not to be outdone, Dan Spohn introduced himself to the national MMA scene with a nine-second KO of his own. Both Holt and Spohn were featured on HDNet (now AXS TV) as 2011 finalists for the Bazzie Award for KO Kick of the Year. John Hawk earned a TKO over Allen Weickart, but the shot heard around the mixed martial arts world was Alexis Vila’s overhand right that completely put former Bellator Featherweight Champion Joe Warren to sleep in the night’s main event.

Joey Holt KO of Clint Musser at Bellator 51The bantamweight division has seen a healthy dose of Intimidation fighters, as both Season 6 Bantamweight Tournament finalists were sponsored by the brand. Luis Nogueira earned his spot in the finals with a highlight reel knockout over Hiroshi Nakamura at Bellator 70.

Meanwhile, Season 7 has truly taken the spectacular finishes to a new level. The Intimidation brand has been regularly seen on both MTV2 and Spike.com and the highlights are regularly broadcast on MMA Uncensored on Spike TV as well as Inside MMA on AXS TV.

Fighters from Intimidation’s home state of Ohio did their best to show the depth of talent in the Buckeye State as middleweights Mojo Horne (rear naked choke) and Jason Butcher (guillotine choke) both scored 1st round submissions live on Spike.com at Bellator 78 in Dayton. Jessica Eye MMA - BellatorMeanwhile, one of Intimidation’s core sponsored fighters, Jessica “Evil” Eye, was able to show fans on a national stage why she is already one of the most popular fighters in the state of Ohio. Fighting opposite Bellator Women’s 115lb Champion Zoila Gurgel in a 125lb bout at Bellator 83, Eye scored a 1st round technical submission against her rival in just 58 seconds of cage time.

But the stellar finishes in Bellator’s Season 7 were not limited to Ohio-based fighters. The brand’s ties to Minnesota were seen on MTV2 as Mike Richman added yet another stunning KO scoring a head kick to drop his opponent at Bellator 76 and advance to the semifinals. In addition, New York’s Team Bombsquad was well represented as Shahbulat Shamhalaev scored consecutive TKO wins inside the Bellator cage at Bellator 76 and again three weeks later. Shah Shamhalaev MMA - BellatorFighting fellow Intimidation sponsored Richman at Bellator 79, Shamhalaev connected yet again to score the 1st round TKO and advance to the Season 7 Featherweight Tournament finals at Bellator 84.
