Shark Fights is continuing to make moves as the promotion grows and the latest proof of that is a new exclusive deal to broadcast their shows in HDNet, starting with their March 11 event titled Shark Fights 14.

HDNet is expected to make a formal announcement about the deal during Friday night’s edition of Inside MMA.

Shark Fights president Brent Medley did confirm the deal as well on Friday.

“Yes, we have entered into a broadcast agreement with HDNet. Details will be revealed on tonight’s Inside MMA show, so tune in!” Medley said.

Shark Fights hit pay-per-view for their last broadcast which featured Keith Jardine, Houston Alexander and several other well known fighters on the card.

The Texas based promotion has become one of the best up and coming organizations in MMA, and they are already starting to fill out the card for the March 11 show.

On Thursday, the promotion announced Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin as one of the featured bouts on the card, and more fights are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
