PBC on FS1 for Quillin-Truax drew 181,000 viewers

April 19, 2019

PBC on FS1 this past Saturday night drew 181,000 for the Peter Quillin Caleb Truax fight per Nielsen.  The event aired on a busy night for combat sports.

The event happened the same night as UFC 236 and the Shields-Hammer event on Showtime.  A portion of the PBC on FS1 event aired on FS2 due to an overrun with MLB Baseball on FS1.

The Quillin-Truax fight went to a no decision after an inadvertent head butt caused a bad cut on Truax in the second round.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are low due in part to the later start time and perhaps the confusion with the airing of the event.  The MLB overrun likely was a detriment to viewership.  Also, the event was likely overshadowed by the Shield-Hammer fight on Showtime.

Got something to say?
