UFC 230 Prelims draw 635,000 viewers

November 6, 2018

The UFC 230 Prelims drew 635,000 viewers according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.  It drew 342,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.

The event featured Sijara Eubanks as she took on Roxanne Modafferri.  Eubanks, who was to headline the show, defeated Modafferi via decision.  However, she will forfeit 20% of her purse due to missing weight.

The telecast also featured the return of Lyman Good as he disposed of Ben Saunders in the first round.  It also saw a very bloody Julio Arce lose a split decision to Sheymon Moraes.

The event was significantly less than October’s UFC 229 but better than September’s UFC 228.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are somewhat low as UFC 230 went up against the LSU-Alabama game on CBS.  Aside from UFC 228, the lowest rated PPV prelims since this past Saturday was UFC 224 in May.
