UFC Fight Night 113 draws 402,000 viewers on FS1

July 18, 2017

Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 113 drew 402,000 viewers on FS1 for its afternoon of fights per Nielsen.  The prelims which preceded the main card registered 284,000 while the post-fight show on FS1 had 222,000 viewers.

The near 3-hour main card featured Gunnar Nelson against Santiago Ponzinibbio.  The Brazilian scored an upset win.  The event from Glasgow, Scotland drew 0.13 viewers in the A18-49 category.  The prelims and post-fight show scored 0.08 in the A18-49 category.  The prelims lasted 2 hours while the post-fight aired for 69 minutes to make up for the early-ending main card.

Notably, UFC Fight Night 109 from Sweden this past May drew 496,000 viewers.  It was another Sunday afternoon international event.

Payout Perspective:

Even though it was a Sunday morning/afternoon card, the viewership for this event was low.  It could be due to the volume of MMA events happening in a short period of time as UFC had a PPV last week and is having a Fox card this weekend.  The fact that this is an international card slated in between makes it a forgettable event and with 402,000 viewers it seems like many did forget a UFC card aired this past Sunday.
