Nearly 3.78 million viewers (3.7766 to be exact) on average watched the two-hour long broadcast that featured Johnson vs. Dodson in the main event, as well as the farewell fight for Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as he lost to Glover Teixeira in what should likely be his last trip to the Octagon.

The ratings signify a 13-percent increase from the numbers returned for the UFC on Fox 5 card in December.

Now these initial numbers are only preliminary, and if anything represent a smaller segment of what will surely be a bigger viewing audience once the final reports come in from the Nielsen ratings system on Monday or Tuesday.

UFC on Fox 6 also killed the competition in the coveted 18-49 market, which is seen as the key group for advertisers. With a 1.8 share, UFC on Fox 6 nearly tripled its closest competitor, and while NCIS on CBS at 8pm just slightly beat the show in total viewers, that particular program is comprised mostly of watchers 50 years old and up.

Why don't you give us a breakdown of how the UFC's latest numbers compare to those of Bellator's.

Ok, the UFCs numbers were much greater than Bellators

I would never have expected this show would do better than the last one. Shocking if true, which says a lot of about the FW division headlining a card.

That's a great point. Bellator's numbers were so bad they weren't even news worthy.
Their first one did around 1.2 million. Not too bad huh? Phone Post

The UFC is the biggest promotion in the world. Those that don't like that need to get over themselves. Phone Post

Start The Party - The key demographic ratings is what makes the UFC worth every penny of the $90 Million contract. Advertisers love it.

There are rumors going around that FOX wants to increase the number of shows on their network. Talking about between 8 to 12 per year.
I wouldn't doubt it. Phone Post

It just makes sense... They're really getting the production dialed in. The Monday Night Football theme music they use for UFC on Fox is just awesome. The UFC is only getting more popular.

Nobody would touch Married With Children, until Fox picked them up. They've always been the network that places that smart bet.
