UFC Fight Night 104 draws 1.158M viewers, Prelims 834,000

February 7, 2017

UFC Fight Night 104 drew 1.158 million viewers on Saturday night on FS1 per Sports TV Ratings.  The prelims which preceded the main card drew another 834,000 on FS1.

Sports TV Ratings indicates that the main card (airing from 10pm-12:59am ET) which featured the return of The Korean Zombie as he KO’d Dennis Bermudez drew 590,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.  The prelims, which aired from 8-10pm ET drew 420,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.

The main card peaked at 1.286 million viewers during the 11:15-11:30pm quarter hour.

The ratings are less than the 1.3M viewers that watched UFC Fight Night 82 last Super Bowl weekend.  You may recall that event was taken off PPV and made an FS1 card and featured Johny Hendricks-Stephen Thompson.  The prelims drew 1.093M viewers.

Payout Perspective:

Despite being lower than last year, the 1.158 million is strong considering the main card featured KZ-Bermudez.  Obviously looking at the attendance, this card resembled more of a lower-tier Fight Night card than a bigger draw.

    […] MMAPayout additionally noted that peak viewership actually occurred during the 11:15-11:30 PM ET quarter-hour, with Volkan Oezdemir’s upset win over Ovince Saint Preux averaging 1.286 million viewers. Overall, these numbers are down from last year’s UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson show, which was also on Super Bowl weekend. That card, which was originally slated for PPV before the loss of its main event, averaged more than 1.3 million viewers, and peaked during — I swear I’m not making this up — OSP’s win over Rafael Cavalcante.

    Good numbers, no doubt about it, FS1 is no doubt happy with that level of viewership. Poor showing here in Houston in terms of gate, strong showing in terms of ratings, which Im sure will go up before final numbers are in.

Got something to say?
