Double the viewers from the previous week…
According to mmafighting.com, Saturday's UFC Fight Night 42 event scored a 0.82 rating and 1,217,000 viewers. That is about double what the TUF Brazil 3 Finale did. That event, which was headlined by Stipe Miocic vs. Fabio Maldonado, did 609,000 viewers. This was the third largest audience to watch a UFC Fight Night show on FS1 (Sonnen vs. Rua 1.78 million viewers is the top). UFC Fight Nights are averaging 817,000 viewers on FS1.
The prelims also did very well, scoring a 0.61 rating and 812,000 viewers. That was the second highest rated set of Fight Night prelims. Fight Night prelims have been averaging 364,000 viewers since the FS1 launch.
