Yahoo Sports reported earlier today that the numbers for this past Saturday’s Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy card drew an audience of 420,000 viewers.
“While that isn’t a blockbuster number, it holds up well in relation to the promotion’s other offerings on Showtime. The Heavyweight Grand Prix Final in May did slightly better at 463,000 viewers, and the most attention-grabbing women’s fight in some time, Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey, pulled in 472,000 viewers.”
The numbers do show they are at least holding their core audience’s attention. The true test of Strikeforce’s growth will be in August when Ronda Rousey steps in to the cage again to face Sarah Kaufman.Tags: "bj Penn", featured, Luke Rockhold, mma, MMA NEWS, Ronda Rousey, Sarah Kaufman, Showtime, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, Tim Kennedy, ufc news
