PFL draws 238K unique viewers for last Thursday’s online event

November 9, 2017

The Professional Fighters League announced it drew its largest online audience ever for its card last Thursday.  The online streams provided 238,000 unique views.

The four-bout card was on a Thursday and went up against NFL Thursday night football, NBA and NHL on television.  The event was headlined by Blagoy Ivanov vs. Caio Alencar.  It was a special Fight Night in Washington, DC as part of a “Fight for Children” event helping underserved youth.

Payout Perspective:

The viewership is impressive as a Thursday night MMA event is rare and it seemed overshadowed by the UFC 217 lead-up.  Still, the 238,000 unique viewers is better than the television viewership from its last NBC Sports Network show which drew just 153,000 viewers.  We’ll see if this means PFL will consider more shows online.
