Payout Perspective:

With the NFL airing on Saturday night opposite the UFC on Fox, and not a big-named event, it was clear that this could be one of the lowest-rated UFC on Fox ever.  It was the second-lowest with July’s event being the least-watched ever.  The event was the least-watched in terms of overall viewers in its  network time block Saturday night but had the highest rating among adults 18-49.  The inclusion of the overrun may get it to 2 million viewers for the overall telecast but we won’t know until later this week.
