November 21, 2017

UFC Fight Night 121 drew 815,000 viewers on FS1 Saturday night per Nielsen.  The prelims which preceded the main card on the network drew 775,000 viewers on the network.

The main event featured Fabricio Werdum as he defeated Marcin Tybura via unanimous decision in a heavyweight matchup.  The prelims featured bout saw Ryan Benoit score a headkick KO of Ashkan Mokhtarian in the third round of their fight.

According to ShowBuzz Daily, the main card drew 0.26 in the A18-49 demo and the prelims did 0.25 in the same demo.

The 60-minute post-fight show on FS1 drew 321,000 viewers and 0.14 in the A18-49 demo.  The post-fight show started 20 minutes late due to the main card overrun.  The pre-fight show was abbreviated to 10 minutes due to College Football overrun.  It did draw 739,000 viewers in just 10 minutes.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are lower than last week’s card but 815,000 has to be a success considering the lack of buzz and notable fights on this card.  The 775,000 for the prelims is another good number as it was going up against college football Saturday night.
