UFC Fight Nights on FS1
UFC Fight Night 26: 1.78 million viewers
UFC Fight Night 27: 824,000 viewers
UFC Fight Night 28: 539,000 viewers
UFC Fight Night 29: 638,000 viewers
This was the first UFC Fight Night on FS2. It’s obvious that the switch to FS2 hurt the ratings and coupled with the mid-day start a low rating was bound to happen. UFC/Fox was likely hoping for a better return on the rerun later in the day (we are working on obtaining that number). As it is, the WSOF event on NBC Sports actually had more viewers than the UFC with an average of 161,000 viewers on Saturday night.
