UFC 213 Prelims are the lowest this year

July 11, 2017

The UFC 213 Prelims on FS1 drew 657,000 viewers Saturday Night per Nielsen.  It’s the lowest-rated Prelims this year.

The feature fight for the Prelims was Travis Browne taking on Oleksiy Olynik with the Russian winning via rear naked choke.   Per Nielsen it drew 0.24 in the A18-49 demo.

The post-fight show 1:12am-2:12am ET  on FS1 drew 206,000 viewers while the pre-fight show 4pm-5pm ET scored 219,000.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are ominous for an event that usually draws well.  The last two Prelims for International Fight Week drew 1.7 million (UFC 200) and 847,000 (UFC 189) respectively.  UFC 200 drew over 1 million
