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

The Bellator/UFC fight night battle is like a very pathetic version of the Monday night war between WWF and WCW in the 90s.

Ingrained Media - True, they have moved it and made all the adjustments they could and it still is not working. You can see the PR control is a lot tighter, sites like Junkie do not even cover ratings.

 

What are you saying here, exactly, Jason?

can a blue embed?

Study these numbers Dana.

As both sides got competitive, both of their numbers were up. Making mediocre cards, will not bring in the numbers. Also FS1 is not mainstream enough to have huge rating.

^The station will build up an audience as they start getting more major games on the channel. It's not easy to launch a sports channel and as fans get use to watching games on there like they do ESPN the numbers will go up.

liquidrob - LOL

I believe the last Bellator on Wednesday night pulled similar or better numbers


Fight Master was a cool concept.  People always want to watch something new and refreshing.

OnlyTheStrongSurvive -  Why do people care so much about ratings? Do you guys care that much about Fox Sports 1? Phone Post

 

better ratings means more product.  if the fight nights do well that means fans will get more of them.  Which also means more money and opportunities for fighters, etc...

 


Then why do your spend all your time praying for the death of the UFC's only potential competition right now?  Why do you hate fighters so much?

praying for bellators death and warning of bellators death are 2 completely different things.

A business man spinning never heard of that, I have a business and when its slow, I spin in 4 ways, spring frost laws-slow the spring down, nice day-everyone is out at the lake, shitty day-everyone is at home. Everyone is busy at work-slow.

The views are terrible, plain and simple.

The only saving grace that fox aint looking to get rid of them.  Is that it is a new channel.

Be prepared for a miserable ratings show, that fight master competes with.

Blue moutain state got axed off spike for averaging 860,000 in its third season.  It was a higher rated show in 18-34 than the UFC.

I have to believe the UFC is up for sale.

Merely stating that fact is not a claim that you're only doing one.  You call one shit and go on tirades about it, insulting it with walls of text and you excuse almost everything bad about the other any chance you get (notice I said "almost", you providing a token example of something sort of bad you said once about the UFC to cover your ass is not a valid retort).

What you want is beyond clear at this point.

Shut up and go away.  Nobody likes you.

+1

He refreshes Meltzer's site all day long for info. It's no coincidence that whenever he posts ratings here, it's right after Meltzer posts them on his site.

brahmabull81 - Well that fucking sucks. And honestly, ups to OP for doing the right thing and posting this even though it probably sucked to do so.

Why do you think this is? Just not big enough names on the card, or?
He has done this before. Many just seem to want to believe he only hates Bellator and is paid by Zuffa.

He reports on ratings and how to fix or what to do instead.

The word just isnt out there on WHEN AND WHAT is going on. Im on here everyday and didnt know the Glover vs Bader card was on FS1 on Wednesday until I saw posts about the weigh ins on Tuesday.

I DID know they were fighting, just didnt know it was then. Most of the prelims were full of cannon fodder and small names also, aka WATERED DOWN.
