Adrenaline to air on Cuban's HDNet

Publish date:

It was announced on Friday that Adrenaline MMA is the latest promotion to reach an agreement to be telecast on Mark Cuban's HDNet high-definition television network. The news was announced via Inside MMA, a mixed martial arts magazine format program that airs weekly on HDNet.

The deal calls for the first three Adrenaline MMA events to be telecast live on HDNet beginning with the promotion's debut event on June 14.

Monte Cox, the CEO of Adrenaline MMA, had indicated that a deal would likely happen with HDNet when he spoke with earlier this month. "It's a nice card that's probably going to be shown on HDNet or something like that. We're going to try to make money and put on a good show at the same time."

The debut event is headlined by a heavyweight match-up between Pride veterans Jeff Monson and Mike Russow. Other fights on the card include Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Terry Martin facing off with submission wizard Daiju Takase, a battle of lightweights between King of the Cage lightweight champion Clay French taking on International Fight League veteran Zac George, and IFL mainstay Bart Palaszewski taking on UFC veteran Jeff Cox.
