WSOF 29 draws 208,000 viewers

March 15, 2016

World Series of Fighting 29 on NBC Sports Network Saturday night drew 208,000 viewers per Sports TV Ratings.  The rating reflects a 23 percent boost from last month’s WSOF 28

Notably, the live event which aired from 10-12pm ET drew 88,000 in the adult 18-49 demo.

In an immediate replay, the event which featured Justin Gaethje taking out Brian Foster drew an additional 108,000 viewers.  It drew another 58,000 in the adult 18-49 demo.

WSOF events in 2016

WSOF 27:  211,000

WSOF 28:  161,000

WSOF 29:  208,000

Payout Perspective:

On a weekend where there was no major MMA or boxing event on the calendar except WSOF, the promotion improved upon last month’s ratings.  Yet, it is still behind the pace from the first 3 WSOF shows in 2015 as those shows averaged 216,000 viewers while this year the first 3 shows have yielded an average of 194,000.

    I had actually intended to watch this and completely forgot. There is something to be said for investing in combat sports with actual promotion….commercials, newspaper ads, talk show appearances…etc etc

    is pretty pessimistic when even ping pong events draw more viewers globally than MMA fights.

    I wonder what d(enial) is going to say if MMA fails to be legalized in NY this year too.
