UFC 232 Prelims Average 1.15 Million Viewers
The end of the UFC and Fox Sports relationship seems to have a happy ending, as the early numbers for the UFC 232 Prelims averaged 1.15 million viewers.
The number trails only the UFC 229 prelim card that saw 1.3 million viewers prior to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor’s historic pay-per-view number of 2.4 million buys.
The peak audience on December 29th would see 1.46 million viewers for Walt Harris and Andrei Arlovski’s fight, which was the last UFC fight to be aired on the network.
FS1, who carried the card from The Forum in Los Angeles, California, was second on cable during the time period, and was second on both broadcast and cable for viewers aged 18-34.
UFC on FS 1 trailed only the Alabama vs. Oklahoma football game which averaged 19.4 million viewers head-to-head.
