UFC 216 Prelims draws 653,000 viewers on FX

October 10, 2017

The UFC 216 Prelims drew 653,000 viewers on FX Saturday night per Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The event drew 0.24 in the A18-49 demo per ShowBuzz Daily.

The telecast featured the Fight of the Night with Bobby Green and Landon Vannata and the main feature saw Cody Stamann upset Tom Duquesnoy.

The prelims were switched to FX due to college football on FS1.  The prefight show on FX drew 324,000 viewers on FX and 0.12 in the A18-49 demo.  The abbreviated post-fight show on FS1 from 1:41am to 2:00am ET drew 221,000 viewers and 0.08 in the A18-49 demo.

Payout Perspective:

The last time the Prelims were on FX this year, it was UFC 211 when it drew 1,184,000 viewers.  The fights were interesting but with college football and MLB playoffs in full swing it appears that the prelims were low on the list of what to watch for Saturday night.
