I am a big fan and try to do my part to add viewership, but even I struggled to tune in last night. That's a lot of fights in that short of a time frame. 

 


Unless you report to Nielsen you aren't doing anything to add viewership. You can turn on every tv on your block to UFC and it doesn't do anything if your not reporting to Nielsen.


There are still a lot of people that see ratings and think that if your tv is turned to a channel then you count in the ratings. What you watch does not matter if your not reporting.

Well fuck me then

270k viewers for prelims, 539k viewers for fight night and 762k viewers for tuf debut.

These numbers are a disasterous.

UFC is building the channel. It takes some time for guys to get used to the schedule. 

UFC can't save FS1 Phone Post 3.0

This.

The UFC has stalled out the growth of their entire organization with this FOX deal. They moved Fight Night and TUF to Siberia.

Honestly Dana's spin is a joke. Hey, when I wrestle my dog in my living room I get 100% of the available audience. Look at me, I'm a media tycoon!

Zuffa obviously wasn't happy with their content being on Fuel and FX, and while they'd never admit it, they're not happy with this either.

Nah, the standard nowadays has become deny, deny, deny. Period.

Every jerk-off I see on TV will tell you it's sunny when it's raining now. That is just much more effective. Blugeon people with lies and many will begin to believe them no matter how obvious the truth it...

I would like to mention that this is the sour fruit that I foresaw Zuffa reaping. They have made their product so boring and bland that people have just lost interest. They are losing money while they have the most PR they have ever ever seen.

It is all bald, sweaty, bloated Dana talking shit and a stale, fatigued product. That is not a solid, ever-green product and that's why they have lost 33% of their PPV revs since 2010.

Lorenzo and Frank just DON'T GET IT. They don't listen and are incapable of change. They can't play with the big boys...

I didn't mention Dana because he is just Frank and Lorenzo's sock puppet.

Oh no, Haulport said they are losing money so it must be true.

They are doomed.

Interesting take.

 

What I can't believe is they put Andy Roddick on a talk show, most annoying person alive

I don't get Spike in my current cable package, and I'm not paying anything extra just for Bellator. Similarily, I'm not paying extra to get Sportsnet360 just for the UFC. There is literally nothing else on either of those channels that I'm going to watch.

Same here Phone Post 3.0

Same here. I get Spike but not Sportsnet 360. When the UFC was on Sportsnet 1 I could get it for an additional 2.50 a month. Now I have to buy a couple of tiers just to get Sportsnet360. That will literally double my cable bill. Screw that. Phone Post 3.0

Seriously though, prelims started at 1:30 pm here. That's not a bad number considering 80% of people were at work, here. Phone Post

Exactly.  The way I see it, crap is flying up out of the UFC, and into the sky.  Where it belongs imo.

Ofcourse fox is happy... the UFC is carrying the network and Zuffa is being paid peanuts for it.  If a girl was paying you to suck your dick you'd be happy too. 

700m over 7 years is nothing... look at the amount of content Zuffa has to produce.  if you take away 3 ppv events a year, the roughly 50m a year spike and versus was already paying Zuffa and all the extra content zuffa has to produce for fox it's a wash.

Yeah, the potential with fs1 and fox can be huge but if the numbers dont go back to what they were the sport can become flacid in the states.

Stop taking it in the ass Francis and get Fox to replay tuf on big Fox at 11pm so you can stop the bleeding.

LMFAO, you are someone in the industry for sure. Phone Post 3.0
