Maybe it’s luck, but we like to think that we know how to pick them, as Intimidation Clothing can claim an undefeated record inside Bellator’s cage thus far in Season 6. Intimidation sponsored fighters, with participants thus far in the Bantamweight, Featherweight, Welterweight and Middleweight Tournaments, have gone a perfect 7-0 in Bellator Tournament bouts with non Tournament fighters adding a 2-0 record to date. Bellator Middleweight Brian RogersThis comes on the heels of an incredible run during Season 5 that saw Tournament Champion Alexander Shlemenko (185 lb), finalists Alexis Vila (135 lb), Ben Saunders (170 lb) and semifinalists Brian Rogers, Chris Lozano, Ed West, Marcos Galvao, Luis Santos and more all sponsored by Intimidation in one or more fights during the Fall of 2011.

While the Intimidation brand may be able to boast an undefeated record at Bellator events in 2012, that record will be on the line this weekend and again at Bellator 66 after the streak remained intact at Bellator 65. Both Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira advanced to the Bellator Season 6 Bantamweight semifinals with unanimous decision wins televised on MTV2. But Bellator 66 puts the undefeated record to the test as the Intimidation brand features 9 fighters sponsored including Brian Rogers, Thiago Michel, Jason Dent, Jessica Eye, Donny Walker, John Hawk, Dan Spohn and both Joe Heiland and Julian Lane in a lightweight battle. Rogers (pictured) will be competing in the Middleweight Tournament semifinals while Michel will be in the Lightweight Tournament semifinals with both fights scheduled to be televised live on MTV2.
