XFC signs new 2 year deal with HD Net



(Tampa, FL) The largest MMA promotion in the southeast United States, Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC), is excited to announce that they have officially signed a new deal with HD Net beginning in 2012.



According to the new agreement, HDNet will broadcast eight to ten LIVE XFC events per year for two years beginning in 2012 with an option for 2014.



The popular Florida-based promotion has been a fixture on "HD Net Fights" since 2009 when they debuted on the network with 'XFC 8' that featured two unknown prospects, Rafaello Oliveira and Ovince St. Preux. Since then the XFC has given many exciting, up-and-coming fighters the opportunity to display their talents to millions of viewers on HD Net.



According to XFC President John Prisco, “We are very excited to continue out partnership with HD Net and look forward to putting on many more exciting fight cards for 'HD Net Fights'. In addition to the Saint Pete Times Forum in Tampa, we are looking to add the Mohecan Sun to our schedule in 2012. We are also looking at coming back to the great State of Tennessee where we have had a lot of success in the past.”



In addition to a new television deal Prisco has brought in some new partners that will bring a lot of experience in promoting MMA that will help the XFC become the #2 MMA promotion in the world.



“ This is an exciting time for the XFC,” explained Prisco. “We have added some very prominent partners to the promotion that we will announce at a later date. I really feel that they will help take us to the next level. We are also in negotiations with some of the top free agents in MMA and are looking to sign many of them to multi-fight deals. We will be making some big announcements about the fighters and a schedule for the remainder of 2011 and 2012 in the upcoming weeks.”

 Too bad I don't get HDNet. I have over 1000 channels but only watch 15 to 20 of them.

this is great.. the fans will be treated to see nationally televised MMA Fights right here in tampa.. broadcast live ! up and coming fighters that want to be seen and will have the stage to show their stuff on LIVE TV... what better way to get your name known in a business that has and is growing like crazy still.. the small promotions don't get this type of exposure for thier sponsors and fighters ! GO XFC !
