The average for WSOF viewership is around 244,000 viewers and 214,000 viewers if you discount the NBC show last July.  The viewership is average for a Saturday night especially when you consider that WSOF went opposite the NCAA Tournament game between Notre Dame and Kentucky.

    That low number nothing to do with the NCAA tournament. It’s as simple as no one is watching WSOF.

    Crazy idea maybe, but why don’t these small two-bit promos not join each other as ONE legit competitor to the UFC instead of further hampering each others?

    Hey Sal, as low as those numbers are, they are still not losing a fraction of the money PBC is. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Just pull the plug. No one wants non-UFC MMA. Ray Sefo is an idiot.

    Wow! So many UFC fanboys on here that simply cannot say anything good about any other MMA promotion not named UFC. I hope the WSOF and Bellator thrive because with other thriving MMA oganizations it will give more fighters a chance to make a living doing the sport they love and are skilled at. And in turn it will increase the salaries for the fighters. So good luck WSOF and Bellator.

Got something to say?
