Payout Perspective:

If you look at the pure numbers for the night, it did the best out of all UFC Fight Night’s since the first month of the network.  It could be due to the patriotism as the fights on paper were not eye-popping.  However, if you watched the fights, they were very entertaining.  Given the early start times for the fights, especially on the west coast, the show did well and will likely rise in the ratings with those that DVR’d  the show.

    Good fights, for a good cause. I’d be interested to see how much money they raised for the Intrepid fund.

    @Diego: I’m sure the UFC will release a number soon if it has not already. I will check.

    UFC’s ratings are horrible. Once again, neither the fight night event or TUF made the top 100 for cable ratings. UFC’s ratings have not only dropped but their demo ratings aren’t good anymore either. On FX their ratings were down from SPIKE but their demo was still at least decent. Now their demo ratings are low enough to knock them out of the top 100 week after week.

    Good fights, no ratings because of no mainstream name recognition.

Got something to say?
