UFC on Fox 9 Prelims on FS1: 613,000 viewers

December 17, 2013

MMA Payout has learned from Nielsen sources that the UFC on Fox 9 Prelims held Saturday on FS1 received an average viewership of 613,000.  The ratings are off from UFC 167, the previous prelim card airing on the network.

It was the first time that the UFC on Fox prelims aired on FS1.

UFC Prelims on FS1

UFC 164                 809,000

UFC 165                 722,000

UFC 166                 628,000

UFC 167                 998,000

UFC on Fox 9         613,000


Payout Perspective:

The prelim card did produce the Fight of the Night and the oddest appearance of the night with Cody McKenzie and his white Nike shorts.  Putting up the UFC on Fox prelim ratings next to the PPV prelims may be unfair but it gives some context as to the viewership interest for Saturday’s card.
