Sportfight – the mixed martial arts promotion founded by Ultimate Fighting Championship veterans Matt Lindland and Randy Couture – has partnered with Mark Cuban’s HDNet Fights for its event at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, Dec. 22.

“I am excited to be working with Mark Cuban and HDNet Fights as they are doing huge things,” said Lindland, president of SportFight, LLC. “They are a first-class organization and all of us at Sportfight are thrilled they are on board for what promises to be a fantastic event.”

“We are excited to partner with Matt Lindland and Sportfight,” said Mark Cuban, president and co-founder of HDNet. “This is a significant step forward for HDNet Fights.”

Sportfight XXI: Seasons Beatings features a collection of Oregon’s top mixed martial arts athletes and veterans of some of the world’s premiere combat sports organizations, including the UFC, BodogFight, the International Fight League and now HDNet Fights.

The main event features Sportfight welterweight champion Ed Nuno, who attempts to defend his title against Michael Pierce (4-0). Pierce is coming off a four-second knockout in his last appearance at the Rose Garden. Nuno represents the Gresham-based Team Quest Fight Club and holds a perfect (3-0) professional record.

The co-main event features a bout for the vacant heavyweight title once held by UFC veteran Jeff Monson as Jeremiah Constant (6-2) of Team Quest takes on Lion’s Den fighter Josh Queen (9-0).

Other featured fights include International Fighting Organization champion Zac George (12-1) taking on Mike Joy (16-3) and former SportFight lightweight champion Dennis Davis (16-8) moving down to the featherweight division to take on Brian Caraway (15-3).
