May 29, 2013

MMA Fighting reports that the UFC 160 Prelims on FX this past Saturday drew an average of 1.3 million viewers. The ratings are in line with the FX average.

The Prelims featured Mike Pyle win a split decision over Rick Story.  It also saw Dennis Bermudez take a win from Max Holloway.

Notably, the Prelims went up against the NBA and NHL on Saturday.  The Grizzlies-Spurs game scored 4.9 million viewers although it is down from last year’s Game 3s by 30%.  The Rangers-Bruins game did 1.58 million viewers according to SBJ’s John Ourand.

Payout Perspective:

A good rating if you factor in the competition on Saturday night from the NBA and NHL.  UFC 159 (Jones-Sonnen main event) did slightly better at 1.38 million and UFC 158 (GSP-Diaz main event) did 1.58 million.
