UFC 120 Broadcast Averages Just Under 2 Million Viewers

This past weekend’s tape-delayed “UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama” drew an estimated average of 1.9 million viewers and a 1.3 household rating.

Officials emailed MMAjunkie.com the figures earlier today.

The event, which took place at London, England’s O2 Arena, featured a main event between Britain’s own Michael Bisping and Yoshihiro Akiyama, a middleweight bout which the hometown fighter won via unanimous decision. However, fellow Brit and crowd favorite Dan Hardy saw victory snatched away from him in the form of a Carlos Condit left hook that earned the American the technical knockout.

The remainder of the televised card featured an impressive submission victory by Alexander Gustafsson, a draw between Cheick Kongo and Travis Browne, and an upset victory for Mike Pyle over John Hathaway.

Among men ages 18-24, the broadcast drew a 2.24 rating, while the 18-49 male demographic was a good deal less, coming in at 1.8. The average audience was down fairly significantly when compared to the past two big events on Spike TV, UFC 105 and UFC 95.
