UFC 165 Prelims TV Ratings Down Slightly, but Still a Strong Draw for Fox Sports 1


Ufc LogoThe TV ratings are in for the UFC 165 Prelims on Fox Sports 1.

The UFC 165 Prelims broadcast netted 722,000 total viewers, according to the Nielsen TV ratings service.

That number is a slight decrease from the UFC 164 Prelims, which attracted 809,000 viewers. Like UFC 164, however, it was the most-watched program of the day on Fox Sports 1.

While the overall viewership was about 12 percent less than the UFC 164 Prelims, the UFC 165 Prelims increased viewership in the key Men 18-49 advertising demographic by roughly 10 percent, drawing 414,000 viewers vs. 378,000 viewers.

The overall numbers are lower than when the prelims aired on FX, but UFC and Fox officials have been pleased with the strength of UFC programming on the new sports network. UFC programming has consistently been a leader on FS1, alongside the popularity of its college football and NASCAR programming.

The UFC’s programming often puts FS1 in the top spot among ad supported cable sports networks.

Myles Jury topped the UFC 165 Prelims on FS1 with a split decision victory over Mike Ricci.
