  1. Default UFC on FOX 8 averages 2.04 million viewers, marking lowest overnight rating of series

    The initial overnight ratings for UFC on FOX 8 are in and they're not up to standard. According to TV By The Numbers, the eighth event on FOX averaged 2.04 million viewers and .9 rating in adults 18 to 49 years of age. That figure marks the lowest rating for a UFC event on FOX, coming in below UFC on FOX 3's 1.0 rating and average of 2.25 million viewers.

    Despite the relatively low rating, the numbers were enough to win FOX the evening against other networks in the 8 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET time slot.

    These figures are overnight rating and not the final numbers. They do no include many West Coast markets or the viewership that watched the show beyond the designated 10 p.m. ET time slot. The final ratings will likely be available Monday or Tuesday.

    UFC on Fox 8 was took place at the KeyArena in Seattle, WA., and was headlined by a flyweight title fight where champion Demetrious Johnson defended his title against John Moraga. Johnson won by fifth-round armbar submission.

    - UFC on FOX 1: 5.7 million average viewership, 3.1 rating in adults 18-49.

    This should've been expected given the overall card name value, which was pretty lacklustre and when you look at the free fights they're giving away in the next month or so, they needed some bigger names and more exciting-style bouts.

    With such weak cards they can not expect big numbers
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    This was pretty much a Fuel card. FX at best.
