UFC 157 posterSaturday’s UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche marked a historic weekend for women in fighting, but didn’t exactly drive TV ratings into the stratosphere.

That’s not to say that they did poorly either. The UFC 157 Prelims on FX were actually right in line with the historical average of preliminary bout telecasts that began with UFC 142 in January of 2012.

The UFC 157 Prelims drew an average audience of 1.267 million viewers to the two-hour telecast. A heavyweight showdown between Brendan Schaub and Lavar Johnson headlined the prelims.

The average draw of the 15 pay-per-view prelims broadcasts on FX is 1.26 million.

Those broadcasts peaked at 1.9 million viewers for UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II, while the low point was the very first broadcast. The UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes prelims from Brazil in January 2012 drew 880,000 viewers.
