UFC 150 prelims on FX draw low average audience
The preliminary card broadcast of UFC 150 on FX this past Saturday drew less than one million viewers.
MMAjunkie.com passed along the news today.
The average audience for the two-hour special was just 974,000, making this preliminary card broadcast one of the least-watched since the UFC and FX began airing undercard bouts.
In fact, just two other preliminary card broadcasts on the channel had a lower average audience.
UFC 150 took place last Saturday in Denver, Colorado and featured a lightweight title rematch between champion Benson Henderson and former champion Frankie Edgar. Henderson earned a tight split-decision win.
The prelims on FX, meanwhile, featured a total of four fights, and three of those contests ended by way of stoppage.
The undercard highlight went to Dennis Bermudez, who defeated Tommy Hayden via late first round submission after nearly getting submitted himself earlier on in the fight. The victory earned him the “Submission of the Night” honors.
Also on the undercard, and likely the most significant finish on the card in terms of historical purposes, Erik Perez defeated Ken Stone via first round technical knockout. He needed just 17 seconds to do so, making the stoppage the fastest in UFC and WEC history for a bantamweight.
