September 25, 2018

UFC Fight Night 137 drew 607,000 viewers on FS1 Saturday night while the Prelims on FS2 drew 243,000 according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The main card featured Eryck Anders taking on Thiago Santos.  Anders was unable to continue and Santos won via TKO after Round 3.  The prelims airing on FS2 featured Charles Oliveira getting another bonus of the night for his submission of Christo Giagos.  The prelims also saw the final fight for Evan Dunham as he lost to Francisco Trinaldo via KO.

UFC Fight Night 137 took place at the Ginasio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Payout Perspective:

The main card started on FS2 as there was an overrun from the Texas Tech-Oklahoma State football game.  As a result, the main card didn’t start on FS1 until 10:41pm ET.  The ratings for this show are better than the last time the UFC visited San Paulo in October 2017 (558,000 viewers for the main card).  The viewership is also better than the last two Fight Night shows on cable.
