Strikeforce Challengers 13 Draws 223,000 Viewers On Showtime

Headlined by rising welterweight star Tyron Woodley Vs Tarec Saffiedine, the show in fact peaked with 320,000 viewers during an earlier woman’s bout featuring Amanda Nunes who KO’d Julia Budd in just 14 seconds.

Overall the numbers are fairly average for the Challengers series which may be considered a disappointment given that it aired during a free preview weekend on Showtime. The last time the station had a preview like this last year it helped boost the Strikeforce Challengers 7 event to an average audience of 316,000.

As it stands the event did just 13,000 viewers more than the 12th Challengers card.
