Jessica Eye win highlights record weekend for Intimidation at events across the USA

The Intimidation brand was once again seen across the USA at regional MMA events and on national TV over the weekend as the company enjoyed yet another record-breaking weekend. With two fighters scheduled to fight on MTV2 and four scheduled in total at Bellator 83, the national audience was able to see Intimidation from the comfort of their couch while fans at events in Toledo, Ohio, Atlantic City, New Jersey and Tulsa, Oklahoma all witnessed the brand up close and personal at local MMA events.

Jessica Eye MMA - BellatorIt took just 58 seconds for Jessica Eye to enter the consciousness of all MMA fans, as the Northeast Ohio favorite submitted Bellator women’s 115-pound champion Zoila Gurgel with a standing arm triangle less than a minute into their highly anticipated match-up at Bellator 83. Sponsored by the Intimidation brand in each of her past nine fights, Eye (9-1), won her sixth consecutive bout, staying unbeaten in the Bellator cage with a 3-0 record. There’s no doubt that we will see highlights from this win by Eye on MMA Uncensored on Spike, Inside MMA on AXS TV and throughout Eye’s Bellator career as she joins a long list of Intimidation sponsored fighters scoring highlight reel finishes on a national stage.

While fights for Kelvin Tiller and Shah Shamhalaev both fell through late, Intimidation will now sponsor Shamhalaev, a product of New York’s Team Bombsquad, at Bellator 84 when he faces Rad Martinez in the Season 7 Bellator Featherweight Tournament final. Intimidation sponsored MASH Fight Team product and Michigan native David “Bo” Harris also put up a tough fight against Claudio Ledesma despite losing a decision at the event.

Intimidation was a big part of the first all-pro MMA card in Toledo, as along with being a sponsor of Purgatory Fight Series 10, where Intimidation-sponsored fighters went 2-1 at the event. Jake Grigson earned a decision win over super-hot bantamweight Andrew Huffman, moving his record to 5-2 as a pro. Meanwhile, Philadelphia native Andrew “Ozzy” Osborne moved to 3-0 since being sponsored by Intimidation, as he earned a split decision over local favorite Jake Draves in a welterweight match-up. Hector Urbina put up a great fight in his homecoming in the main event, but unfortunately he came up short in his middleweight bout against Tyler Beckley.

Tulsa, Oklahoma also got a large dose of Intimidation-sponsored fighters, as two big-show veterans represented by the brand split at the King of the Cage event. UFC veteran David Heath earned a decision victory over Chad Herrick, while TUF veteran Josh Bryant dropped a disputed decision to Sean Strickland in the main event.

Spohn, Compton score wins during record weekend for Intimidation

Four events in three states put Intimidation Clothing in the spotlight even more on Saturday, May 21st. Intimidation capped off a record weekend with crews selling in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma as Intimidation-sponsored fighters took home wins in the main events at NAAFS: Spohn vs. Hawk 2 in Streetsboro, OH as well as EFC 8: Bragging Rights in Erie, PA. In addition, Intimidation was one hand selling at events in Columbus, OH and Tulsa, OK to round out a record night for the Intimidation brand.

Dan Spohn MMAIn Streetsboro, Ohio, the NAAFS put on Spohn vs. Hawk 2, a rematch of an August 2010 fight between two top-tier Light Heavyweights only this time with a title belt on the line. With both fighters sponsored by Intimidation, Dan “The Dragon” Spohn (sponsored), 5-0, proved his win in August over Hawk and his February TKO of UFC vet Josh Hendricks were no fluke as he won a unanimous decision to become the NAAFS Light Heavyweight Champion. While the night did not end the way he wanted, Light Heavyweight Adam Milstead also joined Team Intimidation despite falling in his pro debut at the same event.

In Erie, Pennsylvania, Paul “Straight Outta” Compton improved to 5-4 as a pro with a unanimous decision win in the main event at the Erie Fight Club’s 8th event, EFC 8: Bragging Rights. Compton, fighting on just over a week’s notice, fought for the first time in nearly 14 months and saved his best for last as he dominated the final minutes of the 3rd round, nearly scoring a TKO in the final seconds. In addition, two amateur fighters from Cold Steel MMA in Johnstown, PA made the trip to Erie with both Roy Merriman and Chris Dempsey leaving with wins. Intimidation Clothing has worked closely with Cold Steel MMA & Lion-Do Kickboxing sponsoring their fighters for nearly a year.

In Columbus, Ohio, Intimidation worked with the Ultimate Victory Challenge for the first time at UVC 15 at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Also new to Team Intimidation was main event fighter Phill Burns who challenged for the UVC Amateur Middleweight title. While the fight did not go Burns’ way, Intimidation is pleased to have started working with the Precision Fight Team for this event.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Intimidation brand was on display and for sale at the Freestyle Cage Fighting promotions FCF: Fight Night IV event. As the brand continues to grow across the USA, Intimidation’s strong ties to MMA in Oklahoma were strengthened even more with a successful night of brand building in a new region.

Intimidation Clothing will not rest this weekend as the brand’s rapid expansion across the USA, and especially the Midwest, continues with the Seconds Out Promotions Truax vs. Kolle boxing event in St. Paul, Minnesota on Friday night and the Extreme Adrenaline Championships event just North of Columbus in Fredericktown, Ohio.
