June 7, 2019

The Professional Fighters’ League prelims which aired on ESPN2 on Thursday afternoon/evening drew 113,000 viewers per Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The event was the precursor to the third event of the second season for the PFL.  The prelims saw Emiliano Sordi get a 2nd round KO against Vinny Magalhaes in a light heavyweight matchup.  Also, Viktor Nemkov defeated Rakim Cleveland via unanimous decision.

Prelims for second season of PFL on ESPN

PFL 1: 137,000

PFL2:  120,000

PFL 3:  113,000

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are low but as a prelim event, its hardly any surprise for the ratings.  The event went up against the NHL Stanley Cup airing on NBC at about the same time too.  These events are ones that can get the PFL name out there on cable but the eventual hope is that fans gravitate to subscribe on ESPN+
