XFC Re-Ups for Two More Years with HDNet; Looks to Expand


Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) on Friday announced that they have officially signed a new deal with HDNet beginning in 2012.

According to the new agreement, HDNet will broadcast eight to 10 live XFC events for two years beginning in 2012 with an option for 2014.

The Florida-based promotion has been a fixture on “HDNet Fights” since 2009 when they debuted on the network with “XFC 8,” which 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 HDNet.

According to XFC President John Prisco, “We are very excited to continue our partnership with HDNet and look forward to putting on many more exciting fight cards for ‘HDNet Fights.’ In addition to the Saint Pete Times Forum in Tampa, we are looking to add the Mohegan 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 to help the XFC continue to expand.

“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.”
