May 14, 2019

The UFC 237 PPV Prelims on ESPN drew 813,000 viewers according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The event featured BJ Penn-Clay Guida at the top of the telecast and ended with Ryan Spann’s KO of Antonio Rogerio Nogueria.  UFC 237 took place at Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

The event drew 425,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo and a 0.53 share.

It’s interesting to note that the UFC served as the lead-in to Top Rank Boxing on ESPN which drew 740,000 viewers and 354,000 in the A18-49 demo.  The event from Tucson, Arizona featured Miguel Berchelt as he took on Francisco Vargas.

Payout Perspective:

It was a busy night of combat sports and its interesting to see that the viewing audience really stayed on the channel as there was little dropoff from the UFC as the ‘lead-in’ into Top Rank Boxing which lost out on less than 100,000 viewers.
