Weekend MMA Recap: Team Intimidation fighters earn wins at sponsored MMA events across the Midwest

It was a busy weekend for Team Intimidation across the Midwest, as multiple events and fighters were sponsored on a busy October weekend. Intimidation was on hand at multiple events over the weekend, including Akron, Detroit and two MMA events in Indianapolis, selling its popular brand of t-shirts, hats, hoodies, fight shorts, and more. The successful weekend saw several sponsored athletes victorious with the amateurs stealing the show.

Austin Tweedy MMAAt the Caged Madness 26 event in Akron, Ohio, Team Intimidation was on hand with a successful night, while sponsored fighters went 1-1 inside the cage. Professional heavyweight Tim Dunn (1-1) suffered his first defeat when the doctor stopped the fight with a cut in the first round. Jeremy Linville (2-1) landed a big punch on Dunn early in the fight, and the cut wouldn’t stop bleeding. Also at the Explosive Fight Promotions event, former Division II national champion wrestler JD Ramsey (2-0) remained unbeaten in his amateur career with a first round TKO victory. A disciple of Intimidation sponsored UFC veteran Branden Hinkle, Ramsey is one of the newest members of Team Intimidation.

The Indiana wing of the Team Intimidation crew had a busy weekend, as they were on hand at two Indianapolis MMA events beginning with the Midwest Fight Series: Friday Night Fights 5 event on Friday night. In one of the night’s featured pro bouts, Team Intimidation pro Austin Tweedy (3-0, pictured on right) stayed unbeaten with a 75-second submission victory over Kurstan Davenport (0-1).

Eye, Rogers, Zachrich, Chapman & Spohn to sign autographs at Intimidation’s booth at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus

Filed under Athlete Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

Intimidation Clothing is known as one of the fastest rising brands in the combat sports industry, and that will be on display yet again at the 2013 Arnold Sports Festival. Top ranked female MMA fighter Jessica Eye, Bellator knockout artist Brian Rogers, TUF 7 and Bellator vet Luke Zachrich, fast-rising undefeated bantamweight star Isaiah Chapman and Bellator vet and former NAAFS Champion Dan Spohn are all expected to be at the Intimidation Clothing booth #110 at the event at scheduled times during the three day event. Jessica Eye MMAThe 2013 Arnold Sports Festival will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, at 400 North High Street, on Friday, March 1st through Sunday, March 3rd. Actual dates and times for each fighters’ appearance will be released at a later date online here at IntimidationMMA.com and will be announced on the Intimidation Clothing Facebook and Twitter accounts (@IntimidationMMA).

The #1 ranked female mixed martial artist in the world at 125 pounds, Jessica “Evil” Eye is not stranger to Ohio MMA fans, but her rise to national prominence has come after a thrilling submission win over Zoila Gurgel in December 2012. The quick submission of the former Bellator champion came in under a minute of cage time and put to rest many of the harsh words thrown her way by the outspoken Gurgel. A product of Strong Style Martial Arts in Independence, Ohio, Eye is 3-0 fighting for Bellator MMA and will be in action again in April in Atlantic City as she looks to continue her 6-fight win streak.

luke-zachrich_300Brian “The Professional Predator” Rogers, formerly known as “The Predator” for his post fight celebration, added the word “professional” to his nickname thanks to his former career as a special education teacher and his recent abundance of red carpet public appearances. In recent months the Bellator MMA middleweight walked the red carpet at the MTV Music Awards and at the World MMA Awards where his Bellator 61 flying knee knockout of Vitor Vianna was up for 2012 Knockout of the Year. Now 10-5 as a pro, The Strong Style Martial Arts product remains one of the most exciting middleweights in the sport today.

Known best for his time on The Ultimate Fighter Season 7, Luke Zachrich is a businessman, coach and professional MMA fighter. The owner of the Ronin Training Center in Columbus, Ohio, Zachrich has built an incredibly successful pro and amateur fight team since the gym opened in 2011as the gym has featured many big names to come through the door including UFC Welterweight Matt Brown and former NFL linebacker and Ohio State football star Andy Katzenmoyer. Before the UVC 20 win over Nick Kraus, Zachrich was last seen inside the cage at Bellator 16 in the quarterfinals of the Bellator Season 2 Middleweight Tournament.

Isaiah Chapman MMAThe owner of one of the most fitting nicknames in the sport, Isaiah “The Beast” Chapman is truly a beast at 135lbs. Training out of Rock Hard MMA and Unique Fitness in Akron, an official Intimidation dealer, Chapman is already a black belt in Judo, an accomplished boxer and was a decorated amateur wrestler. In addition to being on the winning end of the 2012 Ohio MMA Fight of the Year by OHMMA.com, Chapman was named the Intimidation Clothing Athlete of the Month for February 2013. He is slated to be back in action on March 30th in Canton for the NAAFS as he looks to improve on his 4-0 pro record.

Dan “Dragon” Spohn is just a few days removed from adding another win to his record as the 4-time Bellator veteran made his debut for the Columbus-based Ultimate Victory Challenge (UVC) promotion. Spohn has been sponsored by Intimidation in each of his fights for the past two years and along with Rogers was one of the sponsored fighters at the Intimidation booth at the Arnold Sports Festival a year ago. Now 7-3 as a pro, the former NAAFS Light Heavyweight Champion returned to teaching at Buckeye MMA and is expected to return to action before the summer as he looks to stay busy and once again get a shot at the big stage.
