Arnold Sports Classic highlights record shattering weekend for Intimidation Clothing

The Intimidation brand wrapped up the most successful weekend in company history on Sunday after an outpouring of support by fans from across the Midwest at the 2013 Arnold Sports Festival. Intimidation CEO Luke Jernigan with Randy CoutureFeaturing a booth stocked full of high quality lifestyle apparel and pro fighters signing autographs, Intimidation was a huge hit at the event which saw well over 100,000 people through the doors during the three day event. Sponsored athletes competed in Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and powerlifting sporting the Intimidation name and a variety of celebrities stopped for pictures with the Intimidation crew. Photos with Randy Couture, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Urijah Faber and more can be found on the Intimidation Clothing Facebook page as Intimidation was heavily seen on the backs of fans and fighters alike in the crowd, at the booth and all across the booming city of Columbus, Ohio throughout the weekend.

While the new “Shamrocked” tee was easily the highlight of the weekend on the sales side, the Intimidation booth never lacked traffic thanks to a combination of great selection, fun scratch off cards, prizes and of course, our awesome sponsored athletes. Jessica Eye drew much attention online prior to the event and even went into sales mode helping draw fans to the booth on Saturday as she and top prospect Isaiah Chapman both signed autographs.

From amateur MMA fighters from SkrapHouse MMA and Ronin Training Center in Central Ohio to Cleveland/Akron area gyms Strong Style, GriffonRawl and Rock Hard MMA, as well as Evolve MMA’s own John Cook, the fighters enjoyed the weekend and were able to brave the huge crowds and lines to stop in if only just to say hello.
