UFC Fight Night 119 draws 558,000 on FS1, prelims draw 198,000 on FS2

October 31, 2017

UFC Fight Night 119 on Saturday night from Brazil drew 558,000 viewers on FS1.  The prelims, which aired on FS2, drew 198,000 viewers.

UFC Fight Night 119 featured Derek Brunson as he faced the returning Lyoto Machida.  Brunson stopped Machida in the first round to the dismay of the Brazilian fans.  The prelims which aired on FS2 due to College Football featured Vincente Luque’s D’arce choke victory over Niko Price.

The post-fight show on FS1 drew 265,000 from 12:59am to 2:00am on Saturday night.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are fairly low due in part to the significant sports competition with The World Series and College Football.  The main card did better than the last televised Fight Night which was the Japan Fight Night this past September on FXX.  Yet, for a typical FS1 Fight Night card, this appears sub par.
