Cain Velasquez vs Bigfoot Silva UFC 160 PreThe UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2 preliminary broadcast on FX drew an average audience of 1.3 million viewers on Saturday night.

That number is fairly in-line with the past few Pay-Per-View preliminary broadcasts on the network, and nearly dead-on with the average of 1.29 million viewers for PPV prelims on FX.

The two-hour broadcast featured four bouts. Mike Pyle defeated Rick Story by split decision in the main bout on FX.

UFC 160 took place Saturday, May 25, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Cain Velasquez defended his heavyweight championship from Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in the headlining bout.
