WSOF3_300x250World Series of Fighting 3: Fitch vs. Burkman took place Friday night at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Had fans known ahead of time the upset that was brewing, the TV ratings for the show might have jumped out of the promotion’s average range.

Josh Burkman shocked most fans and pundits alike by quickly submitting perennial Top 10 welterweight and former UFC championship contender Jon Fitch in the first 41 seconds of their WSOF 3 main event.

The upset lit up social media sites after it happened, but that was too late to spark the WSOF 3 TV ratings.

As it was, WSOF 3 drew an average audience of 201,000 viewers over the course of its broadcast on the NBC Sports Network. That’s well in line with the promotion’s first two efforts, both of which also aired on the NBC Sports Network.

WSOF 1 was broadcast to an audience of 198,000 viewers, while the promotion’s sophomore effort drew a viewership of 210,000.

World Series of Fighting 4 is scheduled for Aug. 10 from Ontario, Calif., and will once again be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network. It will feature company president Ray Sefo vs. Dave Huckaba and Tyrone Spong vs. Angel DeAnda, as well as the promotional debut of former XFC lightweight champion Nick Newell.
