Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy never seemed to get much traction amongst media or fans, but the TV ratings are in and the event held up well against Strikeforce’s other recent offerings on Showtime.

Rockhold vs. Kennedy drew an audience of 420,000 viewers, industry sources told MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday.

While that isn’t a blockbuster number, it holds up well in relation to the promotion’s other offerings on Showtime. The Heavyweight Grand Prix Final in May did slightly better at 463,000 viewers, and the most attention-grabbing women’s fight in some time, Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey, pulled in 472,000 viewers.

The best number that Strikeforce has ever drawn on Showtime is 741,000 for Fedor Emelianenko vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, but that was an anomaly. The vast majority of Strikeforce events have drawn between 400,000 to 600,000 viewers.
