Texas-based MMA promotion Shark Fights has signed a broadcast deal with HDNet and will make its network debut on March 11. The network confirmed rumors of the HDNet-Shark Fights partnership via Twitter on Friday. Terms of the deal were not immediately known.

What is known is that Shark Fights 14 will air live on HDNet on March 11. The event, which goes down from Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas, will be headlined by a middleweight scrap between International Fight League veterans Matt Horwich (Pictured) and Danillo Villefort. Additionally, the bill will feature a co-main event pitting UFC exiles against one another, as Houston Alexander meets James Irvin in a 205-pound tilt.

Shark Fights’ last event was held in September and was headlined by a light heavyweight affair between UFC vets Keith Jardine and Trevor Prangley. The card also featured appearances by Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Paul Daley, Jorge Masvidal and Tarec Saffiedine, among others.

HDNet has been a longtime home of MMA-related programming. Recently, the network partnered with Strikeforce and M-1 Global to broadcast the undercard of “Fedor vs. Silva” live on Feb. 12. The network also provides American fans an opportunity to watch Japanese events, as HDNet routinely broadcasts Dream and Sengoku Raiden Championship shows. HDNet will air Maximum Fighting Championship 28 on Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
