UFC breaks 1.1 million viewers for Cyborg-headlined Saturday show

This past Saturday night’s UFC show on FS1, headlined by Cris Cyborg’s 2nd round destruction of Lina Lansberg, did 1.109 million viewers -- the highest number for a Fight Night show since March 2016.

This was the highest rating for a UFC show headlined by a women’s fight, beating out the July 8th TUF Finale show headlined by strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Claudia Gadelha that did 1.086 million viewers.

Overall, it was the 8th highest rating for an FS 1 Fight Night main card since UFC debuted on the network in August 2013.

The prelims did 883,000 viewers, well ahead of the year to date average of 749,000.

Here’s a look at the top 10 UFC Fight night shows (including TUF Finales) on FS 1:

The fight was contested at a 140-pound catchweight and since there's still no division for Justino to compete in, UFC finds themselves in a strange spot for what to do with her next.
