UFC 175 and TUF 19 prelims pull strong ratings

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC reeled in good ratings for "Read, White and Fight Week," as their UFC 175 prelim ratings were up from UFC 174, while the TUF 19 ratings were down from TUF 18 last December.

It has been a good weekend for the UFC on television as the promotion pulled relatively strong numbers for their respective broadcasts.

According to MMAPayout, last Saturday night's UFC 175 prelims drew 1 million viewers on FOX Sports 1, which is up from last month's PPV event, as the UFC 174 prelims drew 784, 000 viewers on FX.

The UFC 174 PPV reportedly drew between 95,000 and 115,000 buys. Unofficial UFC 175 numbers are yet to be released.

To follow up on Sunday, the Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale drew an average of 1 million viewers, while the prelims reached 774,000 viewers. Unlike UFC 175, the ratings for the finale were down from the previous year, as TUF 18 peaked at 1.3 million and the prelims did 938,000 viewers.

All numbers were taken from MMAPayout here and here.
