on Friday announced that it has
signed a one-year broadcast deal with The Sports Network, Canada’s
No. 1 sports channel.
MFC events will air via tape delay on TSN2 within 30 days of the
event date, according to the promotion’s official release.
“There isn’t a bigger name in Canadian sports broadcasting than
TSN, and having the Maximum Fighting Championship on TSN2 is a
tremendously important step in our future plans,” said MFC owner
Mark Pavelich. “Being a part of the broadcast lineup is massive
progression for the MFC. We are particularly excited that our
growing fan base in Ontario and Quebec will now be able to see MFC
events on Bell, Cogeco and Rogers.”
The MFC renewed its live broadcast partnership with HDNet in June,

satellite station. Based in Edmonton, Alberta, the promotion will
