This past Saturday’s UFC On FOX 12 show drew 2.02 million viewers, according to early estimates, with an 0.8 in the 18-49 demographic.
The final number will be considerably higher, as early estimates do not factor in the majority of the main event or the West Coast viewership.
With these numbers, FOX tied NBC for first place in the key demos for Saturday night and when all of the numbers come in, will likely end up ahead of NBC.
Saturday’s show drew higher numbers than the last UFC On FOX show in April with Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Browne, which did 1.99 million viewers, and were around the same as the July show on FOX last year with Demetrious Johnson vs. John Moraga, which drew 2.08 million viewers in the fast nationals.
The final numbers should be available later today or early Tuesday afternoon.
