May 30, 2018

The main card for UFC Fight Night 130 Sunday morning/afternoon drew 552,000 viewers on FS1 according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.  The post-fight show on FS1 outdrew the morning prelims.

The post-fight show drew a 2018-high of 392,000 viewers and 0.14 in the A18-49 demo on FS1 Sunday afternoon.  The post-fight show aired for 24 minutes due to the overrun of the main card.

The main card featured Stephen Thompson taking on Darren Till with Till taking the victory.  The event drew 0.20 in the A18-49 demo.  The prelims, which began at 8:00 am on the west coast drew 308,000 viewers and 0.10 in the A18-49 demo.

Payout Perspective:

Sunday morning’s event did better than last year’s Memorial Day Sunday event in Sweden as that event drew 496,000 viewers.  The post-fight show likely drew more eyes simply because it was on in the afternoon.  Also, The Indianapolis 500 may have taken away some viewers as it drew 4.91 million viewers on Sunday morning on ABC.
