This is a good move for both parties. HDNet is quickly becoming a TV destination for MMA action and news, and adding a brand like the IFL only adds to its library of programming and increases HDNet's profile in the industry. For the IFL, HDNet replaces MyNetworkTV, which was the league's TV home last year. While HDNet doesn't have the same reach as MyNetworkTV, the league desperately needed a TV deal to have any chance at success. Along with a new camp-based format and an emphasis on matchmaking this year, this deal should also help the IFL's profile. It certainly can't hurt.
