Fuel TV had major success Friday and Saturday with programming surrounding UFC 158.
The weigh-in show on Friday did 215,000 viewers, the sixth most watched show in the history of the station. That's amazing since it beat most UFC fighting events, and aired at 4 p.m. on a Friday on the East Coast and 1 p.m. on the West Coast.
The post-fight show did 132,000 viewers, the largest for a PPV wrap-up show in history.
Prelims on FX did a 1.0 rating, not record levels, but tying for third when it comes to FX.
The press conference was the second most viewed in history on the Internet, behind only last July's Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen show.
