Wednesday's UFC rating & viewership

Wednesday's UFC Fight Night show did a 0.69 rating and 824,000 viewers on Fox Sports 1, less than half the viewers of the 8/17 show.

It beat ESPN in all the key demos head-to-head, so FS 1 is probably happy with a number that is five times the station average. This gives a very different perspective on what UFC will do with anything less than a killer show, because Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann is a good TV main event.

A notable stat is the 2009 Condit vs. Kampmann fight did 1.9 million viewers, and Condit should be a significantly bigger star today than in 2009.
