While those that predicted that 2009 would see HDNet Fights as the defacto #2 fight organization were wrong, there’s no denying that HDNet has managed to put together a very nice body of fight programming. Now it’s gotten even nicer, with Sengoku being added to the mix:
HDNet Fights has reached an agreement with World Victory Road to broadcast Sengoku events, beginning with Sengoku 8 on March 20. The opening round of the promotion’s Featherweight Grand Prix highlights Sengoku 8.
The announcement was made on Inside MMA by Kenny Rice, which continues HDNet’s pledge to be the premier network for mixed martial arts by adding yet another organization to their broadcasting line-up. HDNet already broadcasts DREAM, K-1, K-1 Max, Strikeforce, Adrenaline MMA, Sportfight, Maximum Fighting Championships, M-1 Global, Ring of Fire, Affliction, and others.
No word yet on if Sengoku shows will be live or tape delayed, and if they’ll be shipping Bas and Kenny over to Japan to do commentary.
