UFC Fight Night 110 was watched by an average of 923,000 viewers on FOX Sports 1 this past Saturday night.
That’s just under the average for ‘UFC Fight Night’ shows so far this year, which currently stands at 962,000 viewers, but the event from Auckland, New Zealand still did well enough to ensure the event was No.1 in total viewers and 18-49 year-olds among sports cable networks that evening.
The event peaked with 1,087,000 viewers during the heavyweight main event of the evening between Mark Hunt and Derrick Lewis.
However, that was really the only fight with significant star power, with the likes of Derek Brunson and Ross Pearson being the biggest names on the rest of the six-fight main card.
That being said, the main card delivered big on entertainment with the final five fights ending with impressive finishes well inside the distance.
As for the prelims, they drew an average of 696,000 viewers, which was the lowest rating of the year and significantly short of the yearly average that stands at 789,000.
That’s perhaps not surprising given that they led with an under-the-radar fight between Vinc Pichel and Damien Brown.
On the other hand, the post-fight show performed solidly with 351,000 viewers, so overall it wasn’t a bad showing for the event as a whole.
