The overnight ratings numbers are in for UFC On Fox 6. The event became the 3rd most watched Fox event and dominated viewers from the key demographic.
Saturday night, UFC made their sixth return to big network FOX with UFC On Fox 6. Heading into the event there was a lot of speculation on whether or not the headlining Flyweight championship fight would pique the interest of viewers. The 125 lbers so far have not been well received by live crowds and last night's event marked the first time they've headlined a Fox TV card.
Sunday afternoon TV By The Numbers released the overnight report and showed that Fox 6 was a success. The event pulled in a 1.8 rating with the key demographic of adults 18-49 and a viewership of 3.77 million.
For comparison's sake, here's how UFC On Fox 6 stacked up against the previous fight cards on Fox:
UFC On Fox 1 - 4.6 M
UFC On Fox 2 - 4.37 M
UFC On Fox 3 - 2.25 M
UFC On Fox 4 - 2.36 M
UFC On Fox 5 - 3.41 M
