With the help of Conor McGregor’s presence in the media, UFC 194 proved to be a record breaker in all types of ways. From the record high $10.1 million gate to McGregor’s 13-second title fight finish, the UFC 194 prelims proved to be full of excitement as well breaking Fox Sports 1 ratings records.

From MMA Weekly:

“The two-hour prime time UFC 194 PRELIMS on Saturday delivered 1,931,000 viewers and is the most-watched Pay-Per-View prelims in FS1 history, according to Nielsen Media Research. The PRELIMS peaked at 2,380,000 during the legendary Urijah Faber’s gritty decision over Frankie Saenz.

In addition to being a record-setter for FS1, UFC 194 PRELIMS were the most-watched on any network in more than four years, dating back to the UFC 126 prelims on Feb. 5, 2011, which aired on Spike TV (1,964,000). The special two-hour FS1 UFC 194 WEIGH-IN SHOW on Friday (Dec. 11), was also record-setting, becoming the most-watched weigh-in ever on FS1, delivering 294,000 viewers.”
