Heavy advertisement throughout the NFL playoffs may have been the biggest factor in the smashing ratings success that was UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver on Fox Sports 1. Before we get to the facts and figures surrounding the TV ratings for UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver, let me just say that I was highly skeptical of the UFC (and Fox's) choice to put this event on after the NFL's conference championship games. It seemed like it wasn't the greatest of decisions to have a UFC event held read news >>
