Payout Perspective:

It was the fourth-most watch Fight Night main card this year and it was the third-most watched Fight Night prelims event this year per Nielsen.  The ratings reflect an interest in Cyborg Santos which may mean that more events with her in the main event are on the horizon.  On a night when College Football usually dominates, the UFC pulled strong ratings on a card from Brazil.

    Good ratings, Cyborg is a draw. DOnt think they need to add a new div but you can keep giving her fights.

    Also my God that 205 card is the best ever.

    UFC gives fans the big fights and the big cards.

    Gonna be another record setting PPV.

    Having another monster year.

    And Ronda, GSP coming back, Jones could be back next year depending on his USADA stuff.

    UFC could have 4 big draws next year.
