The Palace Fighting Championship on Tuesday announced that the promotion will make its television debut on Friday, Feb. 29.
Comcast SportsNet will feature tape-delayed fights from PFC 6 “No Retreat, No Surrender,” which was held on Jan. 19 at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino. The show is scheduled to be broadcast at 8 p.m. PST.
“We are very excited about our broadcast deal with Comcast SportNet. SportsNet is committed to airing one original PFC broadcast per month, and an additional minimum of six replays during each month,” said PFC president Christian Printup.
“Additionally, we will have our own storefront on Comcast On Demand with an additional sixty minutes of original PFC content every month with never before seen fights, interviews, behind the scenes looks at the PFC and so much more.”
He continued, “Our programming will air in over 4.7 million households and every SportsNet market from the Central San Joaquin Valley north to Klamath Falls/Medford, Ore. as well as Reno, Nev.”
The first show is scheduled to feature Casey Olson vs. Scott Brommage, Alex Serdykov vs. Mike Gates, Shawn Bias vs. Art Arciniega, and Poppies Martinez vs. Diego Saraiva.
“We are going to bring the PFC brand, our fighters and our Fight Club Meets Night Club atmosphere and deliver it into over four million living rooms. From a business standpoint it helps us tremendously in terms of sponsors and after market opportunities. It helps the fighters who are featured on the broadcasts in terms of their sponsorship revenue and it’s great because it means more MMA on basic cable for fans of the sport,” Printup said.
“It also helps us determine which markets may be most responsive to live PFC shows when we decide to travel the event outside of Lemoore again.”
In March four more fights will be featured from PFC 6: Joseph Benavides vs. Jason Georgiana, Andrew Martinez vs. Doug Hunt, Shawn Klarcyk vs. Rolando Velasquez, and Brad Imes vs. Anthony Ruiz.
