Baby steps.

The resurgent ProElite has inked a deal with HDNet to air a live broadcast of its second event, which takes place Nov. 5 at the 12,000-seat iWireless Center in Moline, Ill., a source close to negotiations today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The deal is expected to be formally announced tonight on HDNet's "Inside MMA" program.

It's the first TV deal in the promotion's short history, and it solidifies a spot on a cable station that also currently airs events from organizations such as Strikeforce, DREAM, MFC, Shark Fights and Titan Fighting Championships. ProElite 1, which took place Aug. 27 at Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, was solely available on the Internet.

Additionally, ProElite has secured a replacement for one of the event's headliners. Following an injury to three-time UFC heavyweight-title challenger Pedro Rizzo (19-9), the promotion has tapped German fighter Andreas Kraniotakes (12-4) to meet former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia (29-7).

Kraniotakes, who counts grappling specialist and UFC vet Dean Lister among his coaches, brings a three-fight win streak into the ProElite cage. Only two of his 16 professional fights have gone the distance.

Sylvia makes his promotional debut after recently getting back in the win column in August. In a super-heavyweight bout typical of the ex-champ's chosen weight class of late, he knocked out Patrick Barrentine in regional competition. (A highly publicized January bout with "The Ultimate Fighter 10" veteran Abe Wagner, which he expected would put him closer to a his goal of returning to a major MMA promotion, ended in heartbreak when Wagner stopped him with strikes in the first round.)

ProElite 2 is co-headlined by another heavyweight matchup; former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski (16-9) meets journeyman Travis Fulton (247-48-10). An eight-man tournament of heavyweight prospects is also set, as ProElite veteran and planned participant Mark Ellis (1-0) previously told MMAjunkie.com Radio, though other competitors and brackets have yet to be announced.

So is the heavyweight tournament supposed to crown the promotion's first champion? I'd think Arlovski and/or Sylvia would be in contention for the championship. This doesn't make sense.

Are you talking about for this upcoming fight? Maybe if that happens then we will see Arlovski versus Sylvia 4. For the title then.

I believe this event is on HDNet. It's not going to be on Sherdog this time.

It's on HDNet. I think you can check out their website or something like that. Maybe some other website perhaps that shows it.
