Payout Perspective:

Maybe there were some nostalgic fans for the last event on Fox as it was the highest-rated showing for a UFC on Fox since December 2016.  The event did well on the network and broke a string of UFC on Fox shows that could not crack 2 million viewers.  Next up for UFC is new partner ESPN as Fox welcomes PBC full-time as its anchor combat sports tenant on the network.
