Weekend MMA Recap: Rebecca Heintzman impresses Atlantic City, NJ crowd winning pro debut on highly successful weekend

There was some serious Team Intimidation flavor at the Cage Fury Fighting Championships 28 event over the weekend in Atlantic City, as two sponsored fighters were in action at the event. Following up on on a perfect 6-0 amateur career, Rebecca Heintzman (1-0) made a successful debut at the event, as she submitted Allison Haynes (0-1) in the second round of their bout.

Team Intimidation was also represented well at the Extreme Cage Combat 18 event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as Intimidation served as a sponsor for the Canadian event.
