Today Mark Cuban announced his own MMA promotion which will air on HDNet appropriately titled “HDNet Fights”. The promotion’s first event will take place Saturday, October 13th in Dallas.
The event will be headlined by a main event bout between Eric Paulson and Jeff Ford. The 10 fight card also includes UFC veterans Sean Salmon, Pete Spratt, Justin Eilers, and Sammy Morgan.
The promotion, which has diversified itself from the UFC by signing low to mid-level fighters to non-exclusive contracts, will combine with other MMA promotions to fill the network with MMA programming.
