Intimidation Clothing & UrFight announce merger of two of Local MMA’s biggest supporters

Intimidation Clothing, LLC and UrFight are pleased to announce that the two companies have agreed to terms to team up in a never before seen merger. UrFight & Intimidation ClothingThe two brands, which both cater to the MMA/Combat Sports Industry, plan to take their individual strengths and combine them in what will surely benefit MMA fighters, gyms and promoters on the local level. After years of competing against each other, a newly-formed collaboration will work to better serve Local MMA and expand the awareness for both brands across the globe.

Long known for their personalized MMA fighter shirts, UrFight has proven to be the hardest working brand in the industry. Commonly seen at multiple Local MMA events across the South, Midwest and East Coast, the brand has sponsored several hundred fighters across the USA and plans to continue to expand their sponsorship roster.

“For years I have had a tremendous amount of respect for the UrFight team,” said Intimidation Clothing Founder Luke Jernigan, who will now serve as the Director of Marketing & PR for both brands. “They are the only brand that I ever found that could out-hustle Intimidation when we were at our peak, and their outside-of-the-box thinking is something I have always envied. To be able to team up with this group is going to be tremendous for the Local MMA market as we build both brands and take them to the next level.”

To kick the partnership off, both UrFight and Intimidation products will be available for sale at the Happy Valley Fight Series event in Elizabethton, Tennessee on Saturday, December 5th.
