UFC On FOX 29 delivered an average of 2,020,000 viewers this past Saturday night on ‘big’ FOX.
As such, the event goes down as the fourth least-watched show in the series, just edging out UFC On FOX 24: Johnson Vs Reis event, which drew 1,996,000 viewers last year.
Nevertheless, the event was still No.3 in it’s TV timeslot and was the highest rated of the four major networks in most of the key demographics.
The event peaked with 2,640,000 viewers during the main event between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje – a thrilling barnburner that’s already being tipped as a ‘Fight Of The Year’ contender, yet sadly will be logged as the third least watched UFC On FOX headliner ever, behind Damien Maia Vs Carlos Condit and Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza Vs Derek Brunson.
Earlier in the evening, the UFC On FOX 29 prelims, topped by Antonio Carlos Jr Vs Tim Boetsch, drew an average of 970,000 viewers on FOX.
