Adjusted UFC on Fox 25 ratings: 2.046M, Prelims draw 1.137M

July 25, 2017

UFC on Fox 25 drew 2.046 million viewers in adjusted overnight ratings to include the overrun per Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.  The UFC Prelims which preceded the main card on Fox drew 1.137 million viewers.

UPDATED: According to Nielsen, Fox was the #1 network in all of television Saturday night among A18-49 from 8-10:30pm.  The peak was at 2.714 million from 10:00-10:30pm ET.

The main card featuring Chris Weidman’s victory over Kelvin Gastelum drew 924,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.  The prelims drew 468,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.

The adjusted ratings bests UFC on Fox 24’s low of 1.996 million viewers earlier this year.

The UFC on Fox 24 prelims drew 1.105M viewers.  The UFC on Fox 23 prelims aired on FS1 and drew 619,000 viewers.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings were a disappointment but with the adjusted ratings, it was able to creep over 2 million viewers as many tuned in for the main event.  The Prelims did slightly better than this spring’s UFC on Fox 24 which shows that the Prelims on the network do much better as a lead-in to the main card.

    The ratings are always the worst in the summer. This isn’t a good rating, but as long as their lowest shows are still doing 2m viewers, it isn’t that bad.

    […] MMA Payout notes that the event barely edged UFC on Fox 24 (which was headlined by Demetrious Johnson vs Wilson Reis) as the least-watched UFC on Fox event ever.  However, given the lack of starpower on the card, and the fact that it is summer (nice weather and no NFL games to advertise the broadcast on), getting over 2 million viewers isn’t so bad.

    Surprisingly low numbers. I used to think weidman was the next big star.

  4. Fight Fan on July 25th, 2017 5:25 PM

    They don’t have any stars left. McTapper had to box to get paid.

  5. d on July 25th, 2017 6:50 PM

    FF, their stars are taking over boxing too. Haha.

  6. fight fan on July 26th, 2017 12:37 PM

    Lol taking over? That’s why Mctapper is the B side and has no say in the operation.

  7. d on July 26th, 2017 3:04 PM

    Haha. Right, that’s why Floyd stalked McGregor to get this fight. He was the one who started the rumor in The Sun and admitted his people contacted McGregor’s people for the fight.

  8. d on July 26th, 2017 3:04 PM

    FYI, Conor is always the A side. Haha.

  9. Fight Fan on July 26th, 2017 5:19 PM

    McTapper couldn’t even sell 2 million ppvs on his own

  10. Fight Fan on July 26th, 2017 5:21 PM

  11. d on July 26th, 2017 7:03 PM

  14. d on July 27th, 2017 5:08 PM

    Boxing fanboys really hate the fact that McGregor will be the 2nd highest paid fighter in boxing history in his 1st fight. Haha.

  15. Fight Fan on July 27th, 2017 6:48 PM
