If you enjoy watching Maximum Fighting Championship on HDNet you will be happy to know they will be broadcasting events on the Mark Cuban-owned channel for at least five more years.

MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich announced the agreement Friday night on Inside MMA:

“The Maximum Fighting Championship is thrilled to continue its terrific partnership with HDNet and to be working alongside such an amazingly talented cast and crew. Working with Michael Schiavello, Frank Trigg and Ron Kruck has been amazing. I have seen such growth on both sides of this partnership and it’s amazing to think about where we can go over the course of another five years. “

MFC made their HDNet premiere in Feb. 2008 and under the new agreement they will continue that broadcast relationship to the year 2016.

HDNet Chairman and CEO Mark Cuban commented:

“Mark Pavelich has been HDNet’s most solid and prolific promoter – giving us great match-ups with every even. Mark sets high goals for the promotion and makes them happen. We are excited to be part of the growth story that is the MFC.”

The promotion’s first live event of the new agreement to broadcast on HDNet will be MFC 31 and is expected to take place Oct. 14. The event will feature the return of former MFC lightweight champ Antonio Mckee, who vacated his title when he signed with the UFC last year.

McKee will take on Brian “The Bandit” Cobb, who is coming off a first round TKO win over Drew Fickett in the MFC 30 main event last month.
