The Mayweather-McGregor Prelims on Fox scored 3.22 million viewers on Fox Saturday night.  It won the overall ratings in its time slot per TV By Numbers.

The Prelims featured Yordenis Ugás and Thomas Dulorme.  Ugas defeated Dulorme via unanimous decision.

Payout Perspective:

UFC on Fox have not drawn over 3 million viewers since UFC on Fox 7 in 2013.  In recent memory, the highest-rated live boxing event on Fox was January 2016 when PBC on Fox 1 drew 2.24 million viewers.  PBC on NBC drew 4.8 million viewers for a Sunday afternoon 1 hour airing of a fight featuring Errol Spence.  The ratings for Saturday reflect a huge interest in the PPV which likely dead very well.
